Re: AK or SKS
You might want to try the newer Promag blued 10-rounder for your Mini 30. Is is supposed to be the best aftermarket, except for the older Thermolds (very high capacity). Newer Thermolds appear to be available, but guys at 'Perfectunion' (hit 'Mini 14', then 'magazine' forum) are skeptical, due to the low prices listed for them.
My brand-new Promag has operated 99% perfectly since the mag arrived two weeks ago. It is labeled Promag, and the two useless silver junk mags which arrived with my 30 were not even labeled (that says something).
The spring might actually be too tight (!), based on some Mini 30 owner's comments on a different website.
As of today, over 170 rounds with it and one single round did not strip from the mag on the first attempt.
Only Wolf and Monarch ammo.
For what it might be worth, last spring my Mini 14's Ruger factory mag misfed twice when I first bought the used ('90) rifle and used mag. These are supposed to be perfect, but it is old.
