Since getting my new (and first) AR-15, I started a renewed interest in my ol' Mini-14's, and have been taking stock of what ammo, etc., I've got on the shelf. I have a couple of "Ram-Line MAC 1530" plastic magazines for the Mini-14 that I notice have embossed on them, "For: Mini-14, M-16, AR-15, AR-180".
I was not aware that there were mags that would work for both the Mini-14 and the AR-15, but it appears that these mags will seat properly in the AR. I have not tried with them loaded, and have not tried shooting them in the AR, but they appear to fit OK and lock into place like they should.
Anyone have an experience using these mags in both weapons? They are pretty obviously not the same quality as the Magpuls, but if there IS a quality mag that will work in both guns, that would sure be a plus. My Magpul AR mags will clearly NOT fit in the Mini-14's.
I'd appreciate any well-informed thoughts on the subject!
