I have seen them in the past at DSI, fair price. With its popularity, I'm sure other LGS could stock them. I never really seen them marked down or used ones for sale. Try Ebay?

For 9.99 you can't really go wrong for ordering one and see if it works.

It's not really hard to find mini 14 mags. Are you only looking for factory? If so, I am not sure it's worth the struggle. My stainless steel 580+ really loves the promag 10 round steel mags. I have put several hundred rounds through each of the 6 I have and have not had any issues at all using crappy steel wolf and Tula ammo. Using brass ammo is that much smoother. Nevertheless, I don't see much of a difference between the promags and the factory mags, other than the price. In any case, I just checked and found that they are on sale right from Midway in either nickle plated or blued steel for $16.99 each: http://www.midwayusa...-10-round-steel I have also bought them from various vendors on ebay for around $21-24 with free shipping.

I've used John Masen 10-Round magazines in my Mini-14s. I found them better than the Ruger Factory mags. They're advertised as no maintenance mags, but I found a way to remove the baseplate and modify it for routine maintence of the springs and followers. My son and I ran the MDTS Practical Carbine Skills Class with nothing but our Mini 14s and John Masen mags.

This is what the John Masen mag floorplate looks like. The green part are the ramps that effectively "lock" the floorplate to the mag body. Some upward pressure on that part of the floorplate, while depressing the metal lock plate down through the hole you drilled (dotted line), and you'll be able to slide the floorplate off. I usually dremel off the ramp and tab (green part-one on each side) to make it easy to get the floorplates off in the future. The floorplate is grooved on the long sides and it does fit tight into the mag body.

I find it easier to load a 20 round magazine than a 5 or 10 round magazine,more magazine to grab on to. Why doesn't someone make 20 or 30 round magazines that are pinned to hold only 7?

I found the PRO MAG works better than factory in that it is easier to insert and remove

There are several 10/30 pinned mags out there. You just have to look around. There are even magblock sites that will build them for you.

For instance here is a 10/30 pinned thermold, though you might want to add epoxy, that is up to your comfort level:

here is a tapco 10/30:

here is a Promag 10/30:
http://www.charlieco...-ruger-mini-14/


Anyone can also make one out of state (pinned and epoxy) and then legally bring it in.
