View Full Version : Mini 14 weird question

Do Mini 14's take ar-15 mags or should I say, are they able to?

Take a look at any website selling both mags. They way they lock into the weapon is totally different. They are not interchangable.

They are not interchangable.

And besides Ruger mags are more reliable...

Flame me!!!!!!!!!! :D

No a Mini cannot accept an AR15 magazine. The only magazine that recmmend for a Mini is a genuine Ruger magazine. They cost an arm and a leg but they work.

Not only will they not fit, many of the aftermarket magazines designed for the Mini-14 fail to work, even if they do fit. You're better off sticking with Ruger factory mags for it. The best price I'm aware of for 20 & 30 round mags is at CDNN online... www.cdnninvestments.com If you can find some original Thermold nylon magazines for the Mini-14, they work equally as well. But, they are no longer in production, so you have to find them used.
