    A lot of the JW-15 "10" round mags are actually only nine round mags. They hang down under the gun right where you want to put your hand for carrying . I prefer two five round mags personally

    Be more involved and less impressed.

    The steel 9 shot buggers can be a problem. Synthetic 10 shot is the ducks balls. Never had a feeding problem with one of them. May sell for what I paid.

    Plenty of the 5-shot mags won't feed well without modification either, just a lack of quality control in the factories I expect.

    @GravelBen My 5 shot mags occasionally won't feed the last round any idea what modification will fix this ? It's not all the time just occasionally.
    May be to do with how fast the bolt is cycled.
    Never been enough of an issue to stress about but if there's an easy fix I'm all ears.
    Sorry for the thread hi jack

    A guy I know who was a pest controller used them, he said the bottom plate of the mag tends to fall off. He has his secured at the front with the worlds smallest weld. Mine has stayed put thus far.

    For what a plastic or steel CZ/Brno one costs, vs the frustration of misfeeds.....
    Identify your target beyond all doubt

    Tommy is saying that the cost of a cz or Brno mag which fits in the jw15 is totally worth it compared to the factory misfeeds.

    My mates JW15 had annoying feeding issues from new, I ended up changing the angle of the mag lips by bending them with pliers, and filed the edges a bit to get the rounds feeding right. It just took some looking closely to figure out what was happening first, and then a bit of trial and error to get it right.

    From memory the problem with that one was the lips holding the back of the round too low and letting the front pop up too high, so it would often stovepipe or hit above the chamber instead of going in. If the problems are caused by lack of quality control then yours might be doing something different, but watching how the rounds pop out of the mag while the bolt is being cycled is a good place to start.

    This is exactly what mine does, I'll have a look next time I'm feeling motivated.
    Thanks @GravelBen

    @short swede , we dont have a shop yet, but I do have someone who could look at them for you. Might take a while so if you are in a hurry... I do have a few spare 5 and ten shot mags for sale and I know where they are and at $45 each, I could sell you a spare to keep you going while the gunsmith looks at it. PM me with your email or ph and I can touch base with you.

    A guy I met was target-shooting with jw15's, he advised to check the hole was center at the muzzle-end, before purchasing. Mine is very accurate with cci ammo. The 5shot mag feeds well, but my first one didnt, and I use a 10-shot steel brno mag with no issues. My BSA sportsman 15, is a laser and extremely long-range.My Son has a toz 17, and a voere--both really accurate. I have only owned one inaccurate .22, and that was an overpriced cz, but everyone else seems to have a good one. I cant speak for modern stuff, but I've never really seen an older .22, that wasnt a shooter, and my BSA trigger is the best of any I've used or owned, including anchutz. There are dozens of good quality, older .22's out there, at reasonable prices...especially in the smaller sports-shops

    A bit of online research reveals that "supposedly" Remington 511/513/521 mags will work/can be adapted. I intend to test this out for myself as it would be nice to have a spare.

    @john m I just bought a CBC a week back for 350. When did you buy yours and how much? Mine likes CCI minimags and CCI subs both groups 1 inch at 50 meters. Mine doesn't like Winchester ammo much around 2 inches at 50. What ammo does yours like?Found out that extra mags are the same as the ones for other Remington .22 rifles (ie. 511, 513, & the Nylon 11) according to this https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forum...?t=80859&amp=1
