It was in 1949 that Sturm, Ruger & Company, Incorporated, more commonly known as Ruger, was founded by William B. Ruger and Alexander McCormick Sturm. Since then, the Connecticut-based arms manufacturer has been recognized as a leader in rimfire arms and renowned for their reputation for both reliability and durability. That said the new Ruger Mini-14 20-round magazines are unmistakably Ruger products in that they exhibit all of the qualities that the company has come to be known for.
I think it is safe to assume that the terms ".223 Remington" and "5.56x45mm NATO" are most often associated with AR-15 and M16 rifles. Well, the Ruger Mini-14 is one of the most popular rifles that is chambered for the aforementioned cartridges but is not designated AR-15 or M16. Derived from the M14, the Ruger Mini-14 is a lightweight, semi-automatic carbine that utilizes a rotating bolt and a gas-operated piston system. And now you can fire it twenty times without rest by picking up the new Ruger Mini-14 20-round magazine.
As noted, the Ruger Mini-14 20-round magazine is a Ruger factory-produced magazine for the Mini-14 designed to hold 20 rounds of .223 Remington or 5.56x45mm NATO ammunition. The steel body features a blued finish to protect against rust and other corrosion, putting it miles ahead of the aftermarket competition. This magazine benefits from the performance and reliability you would expect from any Ruger factory product and will fit and function in any Ruger Mini-14 rifle, including the Ranch rifle, Tactical rifle and Target rifle.
Generally speaking, it is beneficial to seek out factory magazines for your firearms. Factory magazines are manufactured by the same company, to the exact same specifications and tolerances as the originals. They are also made from the same materials, which ensures both fit and function in your firearm.
Those who enjoy shooting the Ruger Mini-14 are bound to enjoy it even more with a 20-round magazine. And with the low price of .223 Remington ammunition, tearing through 20-round magazines should be no problem at all.
