Buying a Ruger Mini is a mistake.
A few years ago I bought a Ruger Target Model Ranch Rifle - the one with the laminated stock, adjustable harmonic dampener, and so forth. I'm used to shooting a Garand, M1A and HBAR, so the lack of sling swivels was a bother, though not one which couldn't be addressed. Began to think in terms of installing a bipod, which led me to consider additional higher capacity mags. The ONLY mags that seemed to function with any degree of reliability were the five rounder it came with, and a new in the box Ruger mfg. 30 rounder stamped LE Only which I'd stashed a while back. Within a couple of months I'd traded the rifle off for one of USRA's Winchester 1895s in 30'06.
