"Just to clarify, this is for the Gen 2 Tapco magazine. I saw some reviews that I think were meant for the Gen 1 becauase they addressed the Gen 1 issues. Gen 2 has fixed the flimsy feed lips, reinforced front for better lock in, and thicker plastic shell. Awesome magazine. There is NO magazine wobble unlike the factory 30 round Ruger mags. I noticed that this mag will actually hold 32 rounds, but don't do that. Put only 30, putting more will dent the case when inserted with bolt closed, or will not seat at all. The spring needs a little play. So don't just fill the mag until it stops, this may be why a few may have had problems with dent casings, feeding etc. It's a 30 round mag, use only 30 rounds. Loading the magazine was as easy with the last round as it was with the first. Very smooth follower no lag time or hesitation. I think this has solved the Mini 14 problem. There is no longer a reason to pass up a mini based on mag price. Get all that you can, but leave me some. Gen 2 Baby!! Gen 1 Magzines are still sold here as of last week, so make sure you order the right ones. I found that out the hard way. But customer service was great, exchanged no problem. Also, if you want to get the best price, order in bulk. I ordered only one for testing, but shipping was $11.00, so it kind of defeated the purpose of the great mag price. I will order at least 10-20 next time."

"In addition to the previous review, Tapco now needs to make ten and twenty rounders."

"I purchased two of these magazines for my son's new Ruger Mini-14, mainly because of the price...well...you get what you pay for. The magazine itself was difficult to seat, difficult to remove and the rounds did not seat properly when loaded into the magazine. Feeding problems occurred in one of the two and the other magazine would only feed the first twenty before feeding problems occurred. Firing a semi-auto rifle by manually cocking the weapon for every shot is rather self-defeating. It looks to me that Tapco has some quality control issues, along with poor specs for the manufacture of the magazines. A lifetime warranty is nice, but I really don't want to send these magazines back to the factory to have them replaced with two more sub-performing products. Save your money and buy another brand."

"Ordered one of these for the hell of it. I figured worst case scenario, I would be out $13.99 plus shipping. This thing fits pretty tight, but not so much that it's a problem. It's a lot easier to get the mag properly seated than it is for the Promag magazines, and this mag is a lot lighter than any steel magazine. On a dry run, this fed flawlessly, but I have yet to take it to the range. I own an older 185x series Mini-14 with the factory folding stock and I'm not a fan of how it looks in my gun (a bit of a styles clash if you ask me), but for this price I'm willing to put up with it!It should be noted that a lot of the negative reviews you'll see for Tapco Mini-14 mags are for the older first gen magazines which weren't as rugged as the current second gen ones. This magazine seems like it's going to last me a long time."

"I purchased one of these, along with a steel ProMag 20-rounder. I was pleasantly surprised to have received a Gen-2 magazine with the steel reinforcement around the front.I was disappointed with the magazine's performance. First off, it was too tight of a fit in my 581-series. I had to practically pound it in on first use. I then had to keep loading/unloading it from the rifle until the plastic was worn enough so that it would no longer bind.Once at the range, I discovered another problem. Using TulAmmo steel case ammo, the bolt couldn't pull a cartridge out of the magazine under its own power. The spring and feed lips are perhaps a bit too stiff. After I managed to get a round to feed and fire, I noticed that the next round wasn't pushed to the top of the magazine. I had to jiggle the mag a bit until the tension on the sides of the mag loosened, and then the rounds shifted up. I had to consistently do this after every round. I loaded up the ProMag steel mag and had no issues whatsoever. If you're shooting brass, maybe this won't be an issue? I'll test it out again later, and revise my review if necessary."

"Gen 2 magazines. Zero feed problems. Six will fit into typical magazine pouch. Fit in my 183 series Mini is rock solid. If I did not need more I would buy more (maybe for xmas). ;)"

"Compared to the gen-1 Tapco's and any Thermold this magazine is polymer steel. I think you have to hit it with a blowtorch to make it malfunction. It locks up tight, doesn't move at all and feeds ALL ammo including the steel cased Russian stuff. It was suggested to me to load 20-25 rounds and let it set for a couple of days. Couldn't hurt but I generally run 20 mixed rounds two times through every Mag I buy. Any new mag has to feed 40-50 rounds as fast as I can fire them w/out a failure to load before I'll delegate them to the ready to go box. I'll buy many more of these Gen-II mags. Worth every penny. I highly recommend them."

"Tapco Ruger Mini-14 gen 2, 20 round magazine (MAG4830)will not fit into the rifle with the bolt closed, unless magazine is empty. Very tight fit and difficult to seat also. I have a new 583 series Mini-14."
