I remember seeing one company that makes Mags that work both in a MINI-14 and an AR-15. Anyone know who makes them, and where I can find them?

Thanks

Sounds cool but I can't help but think there'd be a performance compromise in both weapons.

... I thought a Mini-14 takes AR15 magazines....

Negitive. they look very similary but the latching points are different.

I don't know, but I'd bet that they don't work well in either.

Just a guess.

USGI for AR's

Ruger mags for Mini's.

I've owned both and this has always worked for me.

YMMV.

Agree.

Although, the Thermold mags work awesome in Mini's from what I've seen.

I don't have a mini-14. Im just asking because a buddy of mine that has both doesn't believe me that a company makes them.

they are the same, sort of... - ruger mini 14 used to take the standard ar15 mag - but later, the more "PC" ruger changed it - so if you get a mini14 make sure it is an older one....

Hmm, learn something every day.

They looked so damned similar.

Still Googling it, found a 90rdr that said to work on AR15/Mini14

some one has to know. I think I saw them in an article that was comparing the two guns.
