Default Converting a AR15 mag to use in a Mini 14

So I have been looking for some good info on this topic and I cant seem to find anything that isn't at least a couple of years old. I don't have an AR mag but from what I can see they are nearly identical so my question is...can a AR mag be made to fit a Mini without it becoming cost prohibitive? I would love to hear a real explanation of why or why not because what i have found is someone just saying it wont work so don't try, no real explanation.

Thanks,
SH
