You can aftermarket mags, some work and some don't. I have 3 Promag 20's that work well but bought several Ruger mags on sale for $25 each. Same with AR mags, you can go cheap $12-15 or $30-40 for quality mags. My brother was excited over $35 Magpul's, I'm excited for $25-30 Rugers 20's. To each there own.

your gun phobic wife is visiting family for the weekend.....go to the attic and get your other stock and 30 round mag. go shooting with the boys to "save face."

be sure you get home in time to make your mini a friendly safe gun again! lmao!

not the way i would live....but certainly an option for those who have to live in the "firearms closet."

If you live in the Republic of New York the Mini is a real good option. My stock Mini is legal and does not need to be registered.

the mini...."soothes gun hating states and family members with its not black traditional stock!" sounds like a new sales pitch to me!
