I read somewhere that ruger mini-14 mags will work in an AR. my M15A2 will be arriving shortly and I would like to know whether to keep the mags or not.

I think the reverse is true...kinda.

I had a mini-14 once and the only mag that would supposedly work in either was by Ram-Line.

Ruger mags, factory or aftermarket will not work in the AR unles they have the mag catch cut out on left side of mag body.

Mini-14 aftermarket mags are crap in my opinion.  This beign so I would not want one in my AR.

Get some Thermolds or some good USGI instead.

Enjoy the AR.

You are mistaken.  There are some mags that supposedly made to work in both rifles, but usually they work poorly in both.
