If there is, I have never found them! Stick with the factory Ruger mags, IMHO.

++100 factory Mags are the only way to go for 100% success....at least that has been my experience.

Thanks guys, I have purchased a nice older (1994) Mini-14. It came with 2-30 Round and a 10 Round Ruger Mags. I purchased 2 other factory 30 Round Mags. I also got a nice leather sling for it.

I use factory steel, I think I have two "other maker" magazines that work without doubt. I have a box of iffy mags for the mini's. Strictly entertainment.

I also opine that Magpul is missing the boat on Mini-14 magazines. There are zillions of mini-14s out there, and perfect worry-free Magpuls (1, 3, 5, 10, 20 rounders) would make owners happy to have an armful.
The first maker to market a perfect molded mag wins... big time!!! :o
