    The Tapco 20 round detachable mags are completely relaible in all SKS rifles. The old cheap steel detachable mags never were.

    I have owned a Mini 30 and now own several AK's and SKS rifles so I am speaking for extensive first hand experience here. The Mini like all Ruger rifles is a solid well made rifle. The newer ones are supposedly more accurate than the previous models but they will never match AR groups but thats not what they were made to do anyway. I found that the SKS was generally just as accurate if not more accurate as the Mini and just as relaible too. The AK depending on maker and quality of the build is also basically on par with the Mini. None are target rifles by any means but will give acceptable combat accuracy if you do your part.

    for .30-06: Remngtn 742, like mentioned, or for a few (or many) $$ more, you can buy a BAR--Browning Automatic Rifle, although its no longer fully auto..........

    Another really nice semi-auto .30-06 rifle is the Heckler and Koch Model 940. I know an Austrian fellow who has carried a Model 940 on his annual African safari for years.
