Not a good time to buy right now, prices are crazy! Ruger works the best, I also have Promag 20's that work. The plastic mags are hit and miss, newer rifles seam ok with the generation 2 Tapco. All the sites I have looked at are out.

I would search all of the local pawn shops first. I was able to pick up 6 good condition ruger 20rd mags for $100.

I got a few 20 and 30 round metal unbranded magazines that came with the used Mini-14's we bought. So far they work great but the only thing I'm seeing is that the sheet metal is soft and where the front latch pin hole is if I don't get it perfectly aligned before pulling them into the latch the area around the hole bends inward. I highly recommend using Ruger factory magazines if at all possible because their magazines are made of a harder material making them a quality product far less likely to give function problems than aftermarket magazines.

It's well known, lots of people make Mini 14 mags, some are better than others, BUT, the Ruger ones always work! Spend the time to look for and the money on Ruger mags...
