I wouldn't mind paying a bit more for a tricked out Ruger Mini 14/30. How about you guys?
The answer to your questions is very simple. Ruger wants to make money selling their proprietary magazines.
I would like to see the Mini-14's accept AR-15 mags and the Mini-30's accept AK Magazines. However, Old Man Ruger would have peed down his leg, if it were ever a serious proposal from within the company.
Old man Ruger didn't present much resistance to the anti-gunners. You have heard of Veni, Vidi, Vici? He came, he saw, he conquered?
To old man Ruger, it was Veni, Vidi, Weakly. He came, he saw and he concurred...! The Ruger company is still infected with this cowardly mind-set...!
