Hello all! I am a new Mini-14 owner and had a few questions. My mini is a 582 series and I was curious what you guys thought about steel vs brass? I don't reload so I wouldn't be saving the brass. I just didn't want the steel to mess up my rifle. So far it has had 160rds ran through with the only problem being the mag not the ammo. Aftermarket Pro mags seem to lose more than they hold. I will be buying new mags this week and thats my next question. Besides the factory Ruger mags what do you guys suggest? Now my final question is about the stock. I bought a TapCo stock with fore-grip. My question is do they make a pistol grip with the finger grooves that can be switched out for the one on the TapCo stock? I am sure that all of these questions have been asked before and I looked but didn't see them. So please be nice to the new guy and help me out. Thanks in advance!
