Factory mags are the only way to go. My experience with the Ruger Mags is that the 20 rnders are the best, I would like to have a 10 rnder but we dont have any mag restrictions her in Arizona. So 20 rnders it is. Have fun and dont forget to report back on how they ran.

I like the 20 rounders also. I think it has to due with the weight. I have a beta mag for my AC556 and I've only used it once. I had mounted the gun on a MG42 AA tripod, it worked good but to shoulder the gun with the Beta Mag, its way to heavy for any reasonable shooting. I have a bunch of 30's but rarely use them for the same reason. The 20's get the biggest use.

I agree with anm2_man. To me a fully loaded 20rd still gives my Ranch Rifle a good balance point whereas the fully loaded 30rd I tried didn't feel as nimble. However, to each their own.

A friend of mine recently bought some factory 'new' mags and they would not work in his 'old' Mini-14! Are any of you aware of two different mag patterns over the years here????
Steve, where in CO are you located? I moved from my home state (CO) in 99 but I still have many friends and relatives there and get out there several times a year.

Jim, I'm glad you mentioned that.

I was get a hankerin' to buy a couple 20 rounders for my 180. Now I am scared.


Edit: I sent a note to the Ruger Online store asking if it is compatible with the 180 series.
