And just when did Magpul start making Mini 14 magazines ?? Last time I talked to them they said there WEREN'T any plans for making them now OR anytime in the near future for the Mini 14 rifle.

Are you sure you aren't confusing them with Promags? I wasn't able to find any Magpul Pmags for the mini on Google.

akabaron, first of all, Welcome to the Forum from Central Virginia!

As others have pointed out, it is unlikely MagPul makes Mini-14 mags (and AR mags don't work in a Mini)

Some have had some success with P-Mags, but by and large, the most reliable mags for the Minis are the Ruger factory mags (predominantly 20 rounders). Anything else may require some adjusting of the feed lips or other fixes.

Welcome

Magpul doesn't list any mags for Ruger Mini-14s on their website so I'm confident that they don't now, nor have ever made any.

Very true. I still have quite a few original (20 round) Ruger factory mags I bought with my 181 that still function.

Well I stand to be corrected, was at work and searching for factory mags and thought I saw a magpul one. Must have been intrafuse, kinda switching between working and searching lol. Don't care for the intrafuse and only think the factory ones are worth a darn. I do have a Beta Mag from my AC-556 still but haven't tried it. Don't care for the weight. Thanks for the replies

aka: I'm drooling over your AC556!

Feed it well, with Ruger factory mags - 20 and 30. I have two 30-rounders that have been flawless; others, not so much. Sadly, my Mini isn't an AC, just a plain ole GB model.

Still love it.

Kinda like feeding your Bugati Chrion regular gas. Never a great thing!
