"I bought two of these for my Series 181 Ruger Mini-14. They lock in snug, they feed, they WORK! I might have to buy some more before they get banned by the twits in DC."

"Highly recommended. Tested in an older and newer Mini-14, and it works great in both. Cycled perfectly and for the price it can not be beat."

"I bought three of these for my brand new Mini 14 Tact Rifle. They will not go into the rifle without the breech being locked open. They like to spit out the top round while sitting on the bench. If I load more than 29 rounds, #30 gets spit out. Seems to feed okay into the rifle once you get it locked in. Recommend you spend the extra bucks and get real Ruger magazines. I'll keep these to play with but would never take them into a tactical situation"

"I bought two of these and we put them to the test with 4 separate Mini-14 rifles of various series. The mags were loaded and stored for two weeks, and all of the rounds remained in place, none were discharged. The Tapco magazines fit snugly and locked into place in all 4 rifles we used. We experienced no feeding failures, and the bolt locked back after the final rounds were fired, every time. Our opinion...you can't beat these magazines for the Mini-14. There is finally a decent alternative to factory mags."

"I read all the reviews. I bought 2 of these mags, so let me get the bad reviews cleared up right away. I do not recommend doing this, but I found this mag will hold 32 rounds of 223. I loaded 30 rounds in one and 32 in the other, and let them sit overnight. In the morning I found no rounds had spit out of either mag. Next with 30 rounds in each mag, I had no trouble with either one loading in my Mini-14 with open or closed bolt. On to the range. I only had 500 rounds so thats roughly 8 loads for each mag. I had no problems with either mag fast fire or slow fire, they both performed flawlessly. Also, I found that if you don't bang your thumbs on the lips of the mag, it loads without any thumb pain. All in all, these mags not only are the best looking I have ever seen, they are also of the best quality. They fit snugly but not overly so. I will even go so far as to say they are as good or better than mags Ruger makes for the Mini-14. I will be buying several more of these mags."

"I love these mags. After receiving my new Mini-14 I decided to buy some 30 round mags. I tried several from other on-line retailers, different brands in both steel & plastic, and none of them fed worth a darn -- jams & misfeeds galore. Then I got the Tapco mags, and to my surprise they fed 100% with absolutely no problems at all, and they fit in the mag-well rock solid. I highly recommend these as they are the BEST. Kudos to Tapco!"

"I have several factory mags that generally have a feeding problem every 10-15 rounds. The Tapco mags are incredible. I have never had a misfeed. They snap into place correctly with the bolt open or closed, they easily come apart for cleaning, and the riser doesnt torque or slop around at all! You will be missing out if you don't get at least one of these. My only complaint with them is that I wish the lips were a bit more sturdy, the seem to flex once you get about 25 rounds into the mag, even after the spring is broken in (maybe I will try clipping a bit of the spring out, they are plenty stiff as it is). Other then that, it is an amazing deal for a mag that far surpasses the quality and functionality of any mag that I have tried to date!"

"I just got two of these today. They load well and seem to go in and fit tight so far. I haven't shot with them as of yet, but so far I am happy with them especially for the price. I've been buying stock mags at a much higher price. I will let you know if I can give it 5 bullets after I test fire them."

"Ordered two. One worked flawlessly right out of the package; one had misfeed issues. Disassembled and trimmed the small amount of excess material off the follower and remedied the issue. Both now work great. I suspect this could happen with any plastic mag but it did keep it out of the five-bullet rating.I'll get more."

"Bought one just to see. It seems to be very durable. The first thing I did was load it with 30 rnds and it still hasn't spit any out. I haven't shot with it yet, but will keep you posted. 4 bullets because of the durability and the fact that it doesnt spit any out since that seems to be an issue."

"Absolutly the best low price magazine, ever. It feeds every single round without one problem. I ran 30 rounds through my Mini-14 as fast as I could pump them out. I put 400 rounds through the two I ordered and couldn't be happier. Don't waste the money on any other magazine. Not too mention, these have a lifetime warranty."

"Got five of these for my brand new Mini-14 Target. They all fit good and cycle perfectly. I have had no issues with the way the magazines fit in the rifle or how they come out. They do not fall out like my AR when released, but I dont think they are supposed to. Great job Tapco and thanx CTD. I will buy more when I pick up the Mini-14 Tactical. BTW the Target shots like a custom rifle...can cover the 100yd groups with a dime. Not bad for a $700 autoloader..."

"I picked up 6 of these to match the Tapco stock for my Mini-14. They feed better, fit better, are lighter, and look meaner than the factory ones I had. I just ordered 9 more."

"196 series stainless, can't seem to lock in the mag without the bolt being open. Strange, but not a big deal to me. Everything else about these mags is great!"

"I purchaced two of these clips thinking they had to be good because of the TAPCO name.To my surprise they didn't hold up to the task. When I load them and put them in my pouch, the .223 shells pop out usually about the first 6 to 10. If I wanted the 20 round clips, I would have purchased them. I would not recommend these because I was not happy and I dont think you will be happy either."

"I bought two of these a few months back, even with some shaky reviews. When I got them to the range and loaded them they stayed loaded without spitting out any rounds. When I put them in my Ruger they fit great. When I fired the gun I had no FTFs or FTEs. What more is there to say...maybe I just got lucky.Four bullet rating because I do prefer the factory magazines only due to them being metal. Otherwise they are great magazines."

"Being unable to find Ruger factory mags I decided to take a chance on these Tapcos. I had seen how they work in an AK so I was sure of the quality. A lot of guys load a mag, stick in the gun and complain when it may missfeed a time or two. I always load my mags up ahead of time, leave them set at least a week and I find that this greatly improves their reliability. These are the old Tapco 1st gen mini14 mags and mine worked (after my prep) 100% in rapid fire, slow fire, it did not matter. I would absolutely recommend these mags without hesitation."

"Okay, i have spent a bit of money looking for the perfect mag for my mini. Do not buy promag! They stink! Even the metal 20 rounders stink! They failed to lock my bolt back after the last round. These mags though are amazing! 13 bucks each and they function flawlessly! I shot 300 rounds through them on the first day I got them and another 300 rounds since. I have purchased TAPCO before and these live up to their name. Zombies beware!"

"I have just ordered these for the 3rd time, i now have 17 total and have yet to have an issue with any of them! They feed perfectly, load easy, fit in the gun better than the factory mags i have, and have never jammed."

"I bought one of these mags several months ago. It worked so perfectly and was so cheap i ordered 9 more! I did not intially leave them loaded, and now that I have I wish I hadn't bought them. After a day or two about 4 of the rounds will pop out. Tried in all 10 mags, same thing. Found that if I loaded 29 rounds I could avoid this problem, due to the way the lips on the mag are designed. Problem with that is, it is notably harder to load the mag because of how the 1st round hits the bolt. Bottom line... inexpensive and good for plinking, NOT reliable for duty."

"Bought three of these mags about a week ago. Took one of them to the range today and put about 120 rounds through it without any issues! Couldn't say the same for the thirty round steel Pro Mag I also bought. It jammed about every 5th round, but not the Tapco! Worked like a champ! This IMOP is the cheapest priced/best quality after market Ruger Mini magazine on the market hands down!"

"Bought four of these after getting my TAPCO mini 14 stock set up.Thought they worked awesome for 12 bucks. Quickly found out that the mags will randomly eject rounds when fully loaded. I think it's the plastic tab at the top of the mag that's supposed to hold the rounds in. (led to jamming) It's weak and doesn't do its job. I now own 2 factory 20's that are FLAWLESS in performance. Don't be tight on the cash when your life could depend on it! (ZOMBIES PEOPLE!)"

"I bought two of these mags to test them out. After reading reviews from others, I was a little apprehensive. When I got the mags I loaded them up with 30 rounds and let sit for about a week or so. I figured this would help break in the new spring, and ensure no rounds would be prematurely ejected. I shoot about two hundred rounds this weekend and did not have a single malfunction. The mags seed in the receiver snugger the my factory mini 14 mag. I plan on buying many more of these. The only reason why I gave 4 bullets instead of 5 is because only 1 mag can fit into a molle 2 mag pouch. The ribbed design doesn't allow for more than that."

"These Tapco mags are great for target shooting, feed perfect, easy to field strip, and very light. I would not recommend these for the zombies though, as mentioned before the feed lips allow 1 or 2 to pop out of a loaded clip.. the forward pin hole does not hold up too well after many reloads. but all in all perfect for having fun."

"I bought a couple of these to try because of the price and I am sorry now. The shells won't stay in the top, gives after you load 26-28 and then pop they start coming out all by themselves. Can't keep them in long enough to load the damn clip. I will only buy Ruger mags, they seem to be the only ones that work and you have to have a mag work if you REALLY need it, your life could depend on it. I want my money back."

"I love these mags. I bought 4 of them a few months ago. At first I had the issue where the last round would occasionally pop out on the bench at the range while they were waiting for me to use them with 2 of the mags but now that I've run a few hundred rounds through each they feed just fine. No issues. And if your complaint is that you're in a \"life or death\" situation where 1 round pops out of a 30 round mag and that's your first concern, you must be in some deep, deep s**t. If you're a halfway decent shot you should be able to handle the threat with the other 29 or throw in another mag with another 29 and keep trying...."

"Bought a few of these to go with my Tapco mini-14 stock. At first i was like \"WOW CHEAP MAGS THAT WORK!\" Then I realized that the plastic keeper lips at the top of the mag are flimsy plastic and WILL spit out 3 or 4 .223 rounds if shook around too much. Not good. I'd sometimes find ejected rounds in my mag pouches.Go factory 20 rds or 30 if you got the cash."

"I bought 5 of these after watching the Nutnfancy videos. I wouldn't say these mags are awesome but decent enough for the price. Yes, fully loaded mags will not work without having the bolt to the rear. Easy enough, I reduced the rounds to 26 per mag and it works perfectly fine. I suspect this is probably due to the spring and possible the feed lips, but I'm thinking that it will slowly resolve itself after a little wear. I would say it is a good buy for the money."

"These feed better than my factory mag, which failed to feed 11 out of 38 rounds. The Tapco let me fire non stop. No complaints from me."

"This is definitely an improvement over the Gen 1 Tapco Mini 14 mags. However, I hand load with Montana Gold 55 grain FMJBT with cannelure bullets. The combined overall length I set these to is just over 2.25 inches, which is slightly too long to effectively load into the Tapco mags, as their wall thickness is significantly greater than factory mags. The longer handloads do have a proclivity to get jammed in the mag and prevent operation of the follower. This will probably be a good mag if you only shoot factory ammo. The bolt lock tab on the follower does not always actuate the bolt lock lever on the inside of the receiver, and the bolt may rest on the backside of the mag when locking open. If you are unaware of this when you take the mag out, the bolt might slam forward, unexpectedly. Other than the two points mentioned above, I do think that the feed lips are much stronger than the previous generation, and the reinforced locking lug on the front of the mag is also great. It fits solidly into my 197 series Mini 14."

"The two I bought fit fine in my Mini-14. They're nice and tight, and still not hard to get out. They hold the bolt back when they should and no rounds have come falling out yet. I give this four bullets because I haven't taken these to the range and tested them yet. However, I should note that I can currently hold 32 rounds in BOTH mags. Umm what??? I'm not complaining right now, because that's two more rounds I can use. It concerns me that my springs may go bad faster though. When I take them to the range to test, I'll give a better review."

"I received my two mags, loaded 30 rds and let them sit a week as others have suggested. They fit snugly and \"feel good\" in my 183 series mini. Rounds stay in. They are NOT easy to catch on the front mag pin with the bolt closed. You just have to be firm with it. Not a problem. What WAS a problem was the bolt wouldn't open after inserting either magazine! I then inserted with the bolt open and cycled it several times to mark the problem area. The front of the feed lips are a hair high. A few seconds with a small file relieved the front edge of the lips. After the quick fix the mini cycles fine with no problems. They'll get better with use. I like them. They're beefy and solid. With the current sorry state of magazines and cost of Ruger mags I'd buy them again. Time will tell but they inspire confidence. Still, the best magazine I ever found was the old, out of business Eagle International polymer with the coiled stainless ribbon springs. It's been my loaded and ready 30 rd magazine since the 90s and is still functions perfectly other than occasionally popping out a cartridge."

"Just tried out these mags at the range today. Initially, I was a bit skeptical with some of the bad reviews and that I've tried other \"aftermarket\" mags with horrible results. I bought five mags and shot 20 rounds from each mag. Not a single malfunction. I only shot 20 rounds from each mag because that was all the ammo I had and I wanted to test each mag for discrepancies. I don't see any reason why they wouldn't perform as well if they were \"topped off\" to capacity. They fit firmly into the weapon with no \"wobble\" at all. I'm very pleased with this product and would recommend them to anyone."

"Ordered six and none of them worked. The last three rounds of every magazine failed to feed and none of them would hold the bolt open. The only way to get these to work for me would be to sand off some of the magazine towards the top or sand away on the inside of my stock. Neither of these options sound good to me, so I will send them back in for some Ruger mags. CTD on the other hand, has done an awesome job working with me to get the mag swap accomplished."

"I bought 3 of these mags and have ran all of them without any failures. They work with no problems, holding all 30 rounds or less. The construction seems to be strong and durable, but only time will tell. I also used different types of ammo - 55 grain and 62 grain in brass and steel cased with no problems. I will be buying a few more of these in the future."

"Could only fill it up to 25 rounds and even then, there was failure to feed. I had to pull the mag out, slap it to get the rounds lined up against the rear, reload, and start firing. Did it again three times in the last 8 rounds of the mag too. I hear TAPCO is great, but that's just not my experience. I ran a 30 round and a 20 round Ruger mag after and it worked flawlessly. My advice, just play the extra $$ and buy the mags you know will work - Ruger."

"Bought 3 of these, and none would hold the bolt open after the last round was fired. VERY tight fit between the little metal piece on the magazine and the inside of the mag well. Had to grind/sand away some of the metal. Had to bend the spring in a weird way to get bolt to hold open. Also, they seem to compress inside the mag well and the top round won't clear the magazine length-wise. Wish I had gotten factory mags."

"These mags work great as long as you don't use them in a Mini-14 581 series rifle. If you use them in a 581 Mini they just will not feed at all. Tapco needs to get it together. I have seven brand new gen 2 mags for my 581 and none of them work. I probably won't ever buy Tapco again because of this."

"Was very hesitant about buying these, based on all these F'd reviews, but I have a 581 series tactical Mini-14 with an ATI Strikeforce stock, and both the Tapco Gen 2 mags I bought here worked fine. Yes, they both fit very tightly and can't be slapped into the gun as quickly as the Ruger mags can. However, with a little push in the right spot, they click in just fine. They cycled fine before I shot them and were both loaded for a little over a week prior to shooting. Had 28 rounds in both and all 28 rounds fired. One of the mags didn't lock the bolt back and the other one did. I plan on buying at least 10 more of these mags."

"I have a new 582 series Mini-14 and bought four of these mags. They are a snug fit, and when loaded, you have to have the chamber open to insert it, whereas loaded factory mags can be inserted with the chamber closed. I have put a couple hundred rounds through it and these mags worked perfectly; not a single FTF."
