I just purchased a 1989 mini 30. It came with 2 Ruger mags. A 10 rd and a 20 rd. I would like to know whats best. I would like to get some extras. maybe 20 or 30 rounders.

If you can find the old Thermold magazine's for the Mini-14. They work great. I own 9 of them and never had an issue one with any of them. Other then the old Thermold's for the Mini-14, factory is the way to go.

For the Mini-30, I just picked up 4-20 rd factory magazines. NICE! There is no movement at all to the magzine after its locked up in the mag well. Unlike the 30 rd magazine's I have (no clue who they are made by, been too long ago) which have a lot of back and forth movement locked in.

With aftermarket magazine's it's hit or miss. Some will work great while others turn into epic fail's. When you buy a magazine, make sure when you buy it, there is a good return policy just in case.

Probability will negate my above statements about TAPCO 30Rd.'ers.[ the more--I-use them] But right now ; those plastic "Buggers" haven't loosened( tight & right) & they look purty good for 15 clams apiece.
