Anybody know what manufacture these 30 round Mini-14 mags are?
The closest I can find (same drain holes, follower shape, etc) are Precision Mag Industries but the floorplates are unmarked and most of the pics of those I've seen say PMI on the floorplate. Ruger Mini-14 Mag types & pictures (http://crankylabs.com/minimag/minimag.htm)

Pretty sure we bought these before the '94 AWB, and they aren't LE marked.
Rifle was sold a while back so I'd like to list these for sale since there is no gun for them.

No idea. If they feed reliably, who cares? Rare to find a non-Ruger Mini 14 mag that works.

Good luck,

I have a box of mag's that are identical to what you have pictured....they were purchased prior to the 94AWB as you surmised.....these were sold by Fred Rubin who ran ad's ( 80-90's) for years in SGN's....Rubin imported a lot of foreign made ( knock off) mag's prior to the 94 AWB.....not saying definitively that is what your's are...but they are identical to the one's that I have. Hope your's function better than the one's that I have.

Thanks for the info. IIRC they ran fine, but now i'll have to find somebody with a mini to test them :(

That an offer? :D I'm not an expert but I can test them out.

Also send about 100 rounds with each one so I can make absolutely sure they are functional.

Somebody at "perfectunion.com" will probably know.

They should still have a forum for Mini magazines, whether for the 14, 30 or 6.8.

I would but I think the ammo bill would break me!

Thanks for the tip Ignition Override, I just posted over there too

OP,
The locking tabs seem to be spot welded on as opposed to being stamped out. Those (spot welded) usually are the better Mini-14 mags.

I have several newer TripleK mags and a few National Mags that all look a lot like what you have there. They all have the Spot-welds. I dont think mine have the drain hols yours have.

If you are planning on selling them, I would make sure the buyer knows that these are a no-name brand. Let the buyer decide how bad they want them.
