View Full Version : mini 30 hi-cap magazines

Does anybody know of a RELIABLE hi-cap mag for the Ruger mini 30? I have tried a few brands and they are crap. They jam all the time in the magazine and will not feed.

I have purchase a couple of mini 30's they were crap as well. When the clinton ban ended I bought a bunch of factory mini 20'S. They are 100% reliable. I also bought a Beta and I love it. If you are looking for High cap I would get one of these, they too are 100% reliable and you can store them forever loaded.

Thanks for the info. A good gun with a lousy magazine is useless. I have a hard time believing the mini-30 never got more popular.

there are 10 round mags for the M30 made by ProMag and American mag that function 100%. I've never had any luck with anything else. the U.S.A. 20's can be made to function with some fiddling. the ProMag polymer 30 is crap, won't function when loaded with more than 22 rounds but ProMag is coming out with a steel-bodied 20 rounder I was told about a month back by a factory design engineer. he had high hope for it and I'm planning on buying a few.
