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.

Well I ordered a mag for my Mini30 last week but my order today came in with one of these instead
Since I have a Mini14 as well I don't mind considering these are the best mags made for the Mini14
These are factory mags that fit feed and function flawlessly in the Mini14, I got my last one by mistake but am going to keep it anyway since these are top quality
Overall these are the best Mini14 mags made
While KS don't make mistakes on orders very often I guess I got lucky this time since these are as hard to find as the Mini30 mags are
RECENTLY BOUGHT A COUPLE OF THESE DIRECTLY FROM RUGER...
92.00 WAS THE DAMAGE FOR 2...
AS SOON AS THESE ARE BACK IN I WILL GRAB A FEW MORE AT THIS PRICE...
RUGER WANTS 39.99 EACH FOR THESE...
SO THEY COST 11.23 LESS HERE AT KEEP SHOOTING...
IF YOU OWN A MINI, YOU KNOW THE ONLY 20 RD MAG THAT WORKS IS FACTORY. PERIOD
TAPCO MAKES AN EXCELLENT 30 ROUNDER, IF YOU GET THE GEN II.
I HAVE ALWAYS PREFERRED THE 20 ROUNDERS THOUGH, I DO HAVE ONE 30 BUT IT MOSTLY IS A SAFE QUEEN...
THE 20'S GIVE ME PLENTY OF ROUNDS TO SEND DOWNRANGE. PLUS I LIKE THE FIT AND FEEL OF THE 20 VS 30 ROUNDERS...
(((VALUE))) = QUALITY + PRICE
SO THIS IS A NO BRAINER, AS SOON AS THESE BACK IN STOCK, I RECOMMEND GETTING AS MANY AS YOU NEED.
I have a Mini14 in the Pre 180 Series with the Factory Folding Stock, I bought this rifle back around 88 and it came with a 5rnd magazine with it
Well I have 12 30 round mags by various manufactures and they all have some kind of law
Some don't feed, other fall out, and still others the rounds pop out past the flimsy feed lips
I finally got one of these and couldn't be happier! I normally prefer 20 round mags over 30's because I shoot off a Bench with a Harris Bipod a lot of the time
I noticed long ago in my AR's that a 20rnd mag will hold plenty of ammo as well as allowing you to shoot off a bench with the shortest BR Bipod Harris makes
The Mini14 and Mini30's are the same way. With a 20 round mag in it I can still shoot off the lowest bipod (6 to 9 inch if I remember right)
Anyway I bought these mags just recently for both my Mini14 (223) and my Mini39 (7.62x39) and they both fit nicely under the gun while setting on the Bench on a Bipod.
More importantly they don't fall out of my gun when I'm shooting off hand, they don't jam or fail to feed, and the feed lips are strong and correct so shells don't fling out of them.
I do have 1 30 round factory nag for the Mini14 but I like this 20 rounder far better.
Yet another mag I will be picking up a couple more of when they get them in stock again.
Definitely worth buying!
