November 8, 2009, 07:54 AM
Where can you get one? I see Ruger is now offering a Mini-thirty with a factory 20 round mag. Has anyone seen these available separately yet?

Ruger has told three people that I know of that they will offer them separately sometime next year.

Good, because few if any of the after market ones, actually work.

Well it's about time. They might actually sell some mini 30s now. If only they could make a reproduction of the Mini14/GB-F with the folding stock, they would make a few sales.

Edited for incorrect info.

Not seeing it. Only for Mini 14's and the SR piston driven AR

There are not any Mini 30: 10, 20 or larger capacity mags offered by Ruger on their website.

OOPS, my mistake. ;)

If only, if only Ruger would do the math and offer a Mini-30 that would take AK mags...ditto the Mini-14 that takes AR mags...

Let's hope that If these (now only sold with new Mini 30s) are not manufactured by Ruger, then at least they might be Promags.

How do we know that Ruger built them?

After the election was the first time when Ruger ever sold their larger Mini 14 magazines (20-rd.) to the public.
Lots of confusion is created at "Perfectunion" by people referring to magazines without ever stating which Mini rifle (14 versus 30 versus 6.8) is being discussed.

Many Gunbroker sellers have used the words "factory mag" for aftermarket mags (legally correct), most of which are unreliable or simply don't feed at all.

I called ruger about 3 weeks ago and talked to a rep. with the company, and ask the question about 20 roundmags for mini 30s his reply was yes . look for them some time soon between nov and the first of next year.

Thanks riflenut.
If they are designed and built by Ruger, at reasonable prices, let's hope that they won't be so difficult to find as primers in a Bass Pro Shop.

The Mini 30s would certainly sell quicker.

Judging by the way the lettering looks on the side of the mag in the picture, it looks to be dead on similar to the lettering on the side of the 20 round mini 14 mags from ruger.

I'll say it looks similar. :)

Perhaps Ruger should have dug up a preproduction 7.62x39 magazine for that shot.

I primarily use my Mini-30 for antelope and small deer and will be very tempted to rid myself of my 14's altogether when they begin selling these...especially with the fact that 7.62x39 is cheaper to shoot than .223

Ruger 20s and ProMag 30s are out.



Kinda spendy but the price should drop after the demand goes down. So I want all you fellas to buy em for Christmas, and I'll wait just a bit. :evil:

Hmmmmm......no stainless finish yet it seems.

I think Academy has been selling the 20 rounders for a while now...

If not a member on here, then maybe somebody at "Perfectunion" has tried one.
