Hello everyone, well today I picked up my new mini 14 SS, I bought it before I found these boards so to my surprise after finding this board and the post about the mags wont fit, I ve been a bit worried. I also bought a couple of the new 10 rnd Promags. I got the call late Wed. afternoon that the gun was in but I couldnt pick it up until today, (talk about a long wait!) I rushed down to my ffl with one of the mags, removed the 5 rounder, opened the bolt, popped in the 10 rounder with no hitches or misalining problems, big relief and many sighs!

I hope this helps put and end to this post about Ruger changing the mini around, it is a 196 series, bought from a dealer that sells alot of guns, so the chance that this mini sitting around awhile is slim. Now I need to shoot it!! ::sniper: :sniper: :sniper:

I just bought a brand new 196 series 14/5. I tried
a couple of cheapie cheaperthandirt 10 rounders, and they just plain don't fit. The hole in the front of the mag won't slip over the pin that holds it.

Meanwhile, I've ordered a few Promags and some others. :mad:
cajungeo - Colorado Aerotech is still there at Jeffco airport. Broomfield is now a county.

I ordered some Ruger 5 rnd mags as well as some Promags. Also ordered a couple from bushmaster.

I may order a couple of Masen mags.

I wish Ruger would just sell 10 rnd mags...
