Hello. Can anyone tell me if the Eagle Int'l 30-round magazines for the Mini-14 are any good? (http://www.eagle-international-direct.com/product_info.php?cPath=23&products_id=35)

The price is a little higher than the other after market mags, but I'm told that is because the other mags don't work.

Thanks for any info.

Ruralturtle, first off, welcome to THR. I have no experience with the Eagle mags,but my experience with most aftermarket Mini14 mags has been pretty negative. I have read several threads that say the recent ProMag thirty-rounders work well. Again, no personal experience with these either,but I am going to get one to try.

Your best bet is to just bite they bullet(so to speak)and buy some genuine Ruger twenty-rounders. Those work flawlessly, although they are somewhat expensive. Average price in my area is thiry-five to forty bucks.

Thanks for the kind follow up. I appreciate it.

Sounds like it best to go w/ Ruger. I thought they didn't sell hi-caps to the consumer market, but I did notice some advertised in SGN recently.

I don't mind paying more if they work. I've spent too much money on equipment over the years that just plain doesn't work. :eek:

Thanks again.

Glad I could help. Ruger does not sell full capacity mags to us mere citizens. The ones you see available will have the restricted LEO only markings. Still, they work the same and at some point may even be considered a collectable due to that marking. Not that that really matters to me. The main thing is they work. Wish they were priced like AR mgs though. I heard a rumor that cproducts may start manufacturing Mini mags. If they do, I'll bet they will be of very high quality.

as long as the mini has been around, it is surprising that someone hasn't stepped up to make a quality magazine for it. i bought a bunch of no-name mags and i've been testing them for reliability. so far, out of ten mags, only two have given me problems. they are of obviously lower quality than the five round factory mags from ruger, though.

if a company were to market a magazine that they garaunteed to function, i am confident they'd make alot of money.
