Ruger has always been a PC company, it pisses me off, but it doesn't surprise me. Just one more reason for me not to buy a mini 14

I wouldn't be surprised at all if its true .

They moved the thread... here's the new link...


edit to add: I remember hearing this rumor a few years back from a few of the dealers in my area... I figured it was just to help inflate the prices of the used rifles... but I wouldn't be surprised if PC Ruger did something like that, take a perfectly POS rifle and make it worse...

Amen to that, brother.  The only USA mag I have is for my FEG hi-power, and it requires a good hard shove to get it in to the mag well.  It's functional, but noticeably more difficult to insert than my promags.  I don't think that Ruger was screwing with the magwell.

I believe glock did the same thing with their second generation guns.

I've got a third generation G19 and my preban +2 mag fits just fine, thank you very much.

I have a 186 series that the hi-caps fit. I'll trade even for a bushmaster, olympic, or colt pre-ban ;)

I'm wondering if the guy was actually giving the kid mini-14 mags to try, or if he had a used rifle he wanted to get rid of ;)

I first ran into this about a year ago. I stopped by a gun shop and the owner showed me this problem also. We even had Ruger hicaps and they didn't fit either!

I posted something about it at the time and the only thing I got as far as a answer was, possibly a poorly made mag well.
