I'm new here, so go easy on me. I want a high cap mag for my new Mini 14, in stainless. What manufacturers should I choose, and which should I avoid?

Next, where do I go do purchase these mags?

This seems to be the most knowledgable site I've encountered regarding this subject! Rain down on me!

Thanks!

Hey panhandler, welcome to the mini-14 forum. To answer your question check out: http://www.perfectunion.com/forums/showthr...75&pagenumber=1
for starters. There are several more such threads. I personaly own Ruger, PMI, el'cheepo -USA, and am ordering some 10 rd. John Mason. I have a SS mini with a black stock. All my mags are the blued ones, as I was too cheep to pay another dollar for the stainless mags. Ruger are the best, PMI 30 rdrs were $29, and are 3/8" taller than the USA (more room for the compressed spring). My USA mags $12.95 work fine except I have to leave out at least 2 rds. Its hit or miss with the USA or other cheep mags. Either they work or don't. Some of the guys have had good sucess with changing out the followers, and tweeking the lips to match the ruger mag. Then they work fine. Then some guys fixed their cheep mags by reducing the thickness of the mags to paper thin with a 2 lb hammer. (a guy can only take so much!)
You don't have to go any where to buy mags. Mine are delivered to my door. UPS. Check out these sites. There are more.
Also pawn shops, and gun shows, sometimes ya get lucky.

Hi Panhandler, Also you can try "GunBroker.com for Ruger high caps etc. They aren't cheap but, at times you can find some deals. I have seen PMI high caps for as low as $35.00 etc. Good hunting...

will these 30 round mags fit all the new guns or just pre-ban?
i am planning on getting a mini in the next week or so and it would be no fun if there wasnt a big bananna clip hanging out the bottom!

iam, I bought my new SS ranch mini last christmas. it is a 196- series, and several 20 & 30 rd clips. They fit fine in mine. You might want to check out these threads first.

You might find it interesting to view the different opinions. Again I didn't have any mag. problems with my new mini except the hi cap. mags I had to leave out a couple of rounds to get them latched. i.e. the 20 rdrs, load 18, the 30 rdrs, load 28 etc.
