Hi GunRunner, Well I have never heard of Western Mag but I will say that it looks great!! Let us know how she works out. I have been debating getting a Mini 30 and High Cap Mags was/is an issue... Give it a whirl an let us know.

That looks just like one of my Mini-30 mags!. I don't know what brand it is for sure, but it looks identical.

It works OK. It tends to fall out of my gun and the last round will pop right out of the clip before it can get fed into the chamber.

I certainly wouldn't want to faith my life on them.

gunrunner, you got that picture from fourfourmag.com didn't you? A good choice, if it dosen't work, ever, you can return it for exchange or refund. They garentee all their mags. Not a bad deal for 20 bucks. If it were my deal I'd give it a try.

Hi Satan2655
Ruger do not make large mags anymore, is this correct?.

I have not seen masen mags that are over 10 rd for the mini 30, are you saying their are masen large mags?.

When you say USA with Masen followers, are they the ones in my garden or are the flowers the lip ( feeding area ) of the magazine?

I dont know about Western mags for the mini 30 but the western mags I tried with my mini 14 were complete junk. Just my experience, good luck.

You are right - Masen only makes up to 10-rounders.
The 'follower' I refer to is the spring-loaded moveable part of the magazine that is below the first round you put in the mag. When firing the gun, it is the part that follows the last shell. It also flips the bolt-lock lever on the Minis.

The Magazine that expands called Polymer Thermold Expanding mags.

The cost is 100 American, must be gold.
I have never seen a picture of this mag, is it secret?

Would like all your opinions on this, for mini 30 ect :rapid:

I have been told, that I most likely will have to take the risk of buying any brand mags, to see if they work.

I do wish that we not have to guess, but I feel that I will have to in the end, because their is no brand that really works.

First of all, I will need to purchase a mini 30, then the mags

About Thermold Mini-30 Magazine 28-45 Round Capacity 7.62 x 39 Caliber

Here is the pictures of this plastic magazine

http://www.deltaforce.com/catalog/pg34.html#4094

I would say that this would most likely be the best magazine for the mini 30 but I have never used them.

I wish this mag was steel but it's not.

If anyone has used one, can you write about it.

I would have to buy 4, not just one because one is not good enough. the cost would be $400 american, I could buy around 25 western s/s mags for the same price, if I buy 25 then I think 5 or 6 would work???

What would you do in this situation????

Well, all I can tell you guys that I have been using 20 rd. and 30 rd magazines for the mini 14 ranch rifle and 30 rd mags for the mini 30 all from U.S.A. with only two incidents when I did not load the magazine properly as the rounds were not seated properly at the rear of the mag. All were new in the package except one 30 rounder for the mini 14, which I bought used at a pawn for $14 which works just fine. I only use brass case ammo, have found steel case ammo will cause problems in most magazines, with only a few exceptions of some type of firearms. Any magazine may be defective and need repair or replacement. Check the pawn shops that sell fireams, last year I found 2 ruger 20 rnd mags for $50 for both.:usa: singleside :rapid: FREEDOM IS NOT FREE
