I have the perfect link for you. http://www.perfectunion.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=14226

Look for used Ruger and PMI, new Promag and Masen. I wouldn't buy any other brands, the difference in quality is huge.

NY lets in just about anything so long as it isn't NFA. We have a variation of the AWB, but it's mainly a joke.

Hi again,
Yeah... we can have 10+ mags in NY if they were made before 1994... pre-ban. This friend of mine is looking for 30 round FACTORY Ruger Mini 14 mags in stainless (nickel). I've found some sellers online, but none so far offer pre-ban mags and the companies that sell them won't ship to NY. This is the dilemma. Any futher help would be much appreciated.

Thanks again,

Beware, as Bigfoot said watch what mags you buy, because the cheaper ones are just that cheap. I learned the hard way!!! :cuss:

Factory Ruger 30s are extremely rare and EXTREMELY expensive. 20s are easier to find. If you can find pre-ban PMIs they should be as good as Ruger OEM mags and a heckuva lot cheaper.

Here's the link for Cal's

No where near $99.

Hi there, I have 2 Original Ruger Factory Mini 14 magazines I'd like to sell. They were made around 1981. They are both 20 round. They still have the boxes with them although they have been used only a couple of times. They're like new. If you're interested, I can send pictures. I had one listed on Ebay, and it got up to $63. before somebody told Ebay it wasn't a ten round magazine. Because of California, Ebay won't allow anything over 10 rounds. There are a lot of magazines (over 10 rounds) on Ebay for sale, and some of them make it to the end of the auction and some of them don't. All it takes is one complaint to Ebay, and they cancel the auction. You can email me at stage49@msn.com

Try this http://www.fourfourmagstore.com/home.asp . I haven't bought from them so I can't vouchsafe them. I have read that ProMag is the authorized OEM for Ruger but have never confirmed this.

"No magazines with a capacity over 12-rounds to Chicago Illinois"

When did this start? :scrutiny:

Aside from his million dollar donation to the NRA Museum, William B. Ruger, Senior, should be remembered as the man who embraced the investment casting process very early on, and whose Pine Tree is one of the most respected investment casting enterprises in the world, the man who gave us the Mini-14, the 10/22 and the first American-made production firearm chambered in 7.62 X 39mm... and the man who told NBC News' Tom Brokaw that:

"No honest man needs more than 10 rounds in any gun."

"I never meant for simple civilians to have my 20 or 30 round magazines or my folding stock."

"I see nothing wrong with waiting periods."

And, sadly, that too must be part of the Ruger legacy.
