    I was at a local gun shop today and they have some factory 30 rd mags for my mini 14! The only bad thing is they were $45 and they did not have any 20 rnd mags! May have to get one anyway.

    Hoffman's has the Ruger factory 30-round mags for $30 each. I just picked up two.

    I think Academy has Pro-Mag 30 round mags for $20. But it has been a little while since I bought one, so they may have gone up.

    Due to the news that Schumer and others are pushing for magazine capacity limitations Mini 14 magazines for over five rounds are getting hard to come by from local gun stores, Ruger 20 round magazines are priced from $39.95 to $60. I didn't ask if the $60 magazines were stainless steel but at that price they should be.

    The shooting community has a reputation for doing this to themselves, every time some politician starts talking gun control, magazine bans, name it. Forget Schumer, Feinstein, Boxer, and the rest of the anti gun, screaming liberals. There is no support what so ever on Capitol Hill for any new gun control measures. And that includes sticking it on to other bills that are less objectionable. Especially this close to an election. The tone in American has changed for the better regarding gun control. Few want it, and even fewer legislators support it. It's no win for most everybody who touches it.

    Bad press will drive people to buy more when politicians start spouting off the ban word. AR sales have been up and high cap mags. People don't trust Wall Street or politicians anymore, we have started investing in the most trusted and valued items, guns and ammo.

    I did pick up a 20 rd mag, Ruger factory for $26 over the weekend, the store only had 1. They are having a liquidation sale at a LGS and I was looking for anything that could be of use.

    I think CDNN is selling Ruger factory 20 rounders for the same price this week. I've heard of feeding issues with the Ruger 30 round Mini 14 magazines. That's why I stick to the 20 round mags.

    I'm far from being an expert; I've heard that Thermold are junk. I'm sad to say that I've heard that pretty much everything except Ruger factory mags are junk (jury seems to still be out on Tapco Gen II mags).

    Hmmm.

    Ah well, I was looking for some higher cap mags (I still only have the 5 rounder) but the only Factory I've been able to find is 30 and it's $60.

    See my post on page 1 of this thread: Hoffman's (www.hoffgun.com) has (or did a couple weeks ago) 30-round Ruger mags for $30.

    Stick to Ruger factory magazines for the Mini 14. Anything else is a crap shoot as far as reliability.

    Yes. Any of them. For some reason in the Ruger Mini 14, any venture away from factory magazines usually will always result in disappointment. It's less of a problem now since Ruger is selling them to the public, and the price on them has come down. Before it was not uncommon to see them selling for $50.00 to $65.00 each for 20 round models. Now you can find them priced in the twenties.

    Every single mag I've tried with my Mini has been reliable, from Tapcos to Thermolds to even el cheapo Nationals.
