Five round magazines are available from Ruger, but you have to order them over the phone. They are not on the website, and the part number in the catalog is incorrect.chefoggy said:Has any one heard of any manufacturer producing other than a 5 rounder, and are extra 5 rounders available?
Uh, last week was the first week in May. Or did he mean they'd ship the 1st week in May 2010?Received a call on Friday 5/8/09. Had ordered 5 Mini-14 6.8 20 round mags. Was told by owner they were being milled and would ship 1st week in May.
I don't think Ruger will sell many 6.8 rifles unless a 20 round mag becomes available.Thanks for the feedback DeanW.
I still hope the dedicated 6.8 ProMags turn out to be good options for us. I can't see Ruger making some themselves until they start selling a ton of Mini 6.8's. With many LE agencies using Mini-14's, you would think Ruger would offer a 6.8 version and the 20 round mags to go with it.
I agree. I sold a Mini 14 recently because I had a great offer on it during the "rush". I wouldn't mind a newer one especially since their built better now. If they had SPC II chambers and 20 round magazines for the 6.8 model, I would definitely buy one. I just don't need a 5-round Ruger Mini 6.8 when I have the AR platform with so many more magazine choices plus better barrel specs available for the AR 6.8s.I don't think Ruger will sell many 6.8 rifles unless a 20 round mag becomes available.
Keep us informed on how they function. We have several 6.8 Mini owners who are waiting to hear how these mags work.My 5 Pro Mag Mini 6.8 SPC 20 round steel magazines arrived today. I will have to try them out. They do seem very long though and look like a large version of a 15 round M1 Carbine mag.
At least I have some 20 rounders for my 6.8 Mini now!
