I own a Mini 14 That I bought on the used gun rack at Cabela's. The first magazine I shot thru it I had about 8 FTF. It was an aftermarket mag. I switch to the other mag that cam with it. it was the factory mag. No problems after that. My wife just bought me two Magpul mags for christmas. I haven't had the chance to use them yet. does anybody have reviews on the magpul mag.

I was brought up on the Mini-14 as I was issued one in the early '80s in LE.
They did the job just fine, very dependable.

I got a boatload of Pmags for my ARs about 6 weeks before they disappeared. Got 36 for $10.99 ea. Figured that was as cheap as I'd ever find 'em..... got lucky, there!

They are miles ahead of metal mags with no covers. I got tired of getting out to the field and finding out the feed lips on my mag(s) were dinged & wouldn't feed.

Now, 'ALL' my metal mags are in a box, taped up, and put away.
Too bad CO went Anti-Constitution on their citizens. Lets hope they vote to clean house & get some PRO-AMERICAN legislators and Governor.

Pmag is leaving CO, of course. I sure hope they get set up soon.
