I just received my 2009 Ruger catalog and it's got a message from their CEO stating that he reads every email.

So I went to the Ruger site and requested 10 round magazines. Here's the "E-mail our CEO" link:

If you are like me and would like to buy 10 round factory mags, I don't think it'd hurt to send in requests for them to make these available. :)

First I'd like to find a place in So Cal that currently stocks the Mini-14:). I'll send an email though.

I was just in at Ade's today, they had one on the rack. Give them a call if you're in the area.

Thanks for the heads up.

I sent off a letter to some general customer service e-mail address a few months ago about this and received some boiler plate response about "they will look into it." I just sent another e-mail off to this guy. Hopefully this CEO will take the idea seriously if enough people respond.

Hopefully. But I'm not holding my breath.

all i can say is that i am happy with their current direction

having the 20 rounders on sale for the past couple months should make them plenty of dough

making a little 380 the 10/22 pistol i guess it took the old man to die to get fun stuff rolling

the new sr9 is so sleek compared to their old clunky p-pistols

if they coudl just make a m14 clone with some spiffy upgrades

Most places stock it...when they can get it. One store's salesman told me recently that since the election anything semi-auto gets sold pretty much within 24 hrs of it appearing on the rack. Even here on Calguns in the Marketplace, a good used Mini at a reasonable price will go pretty darn quick. I saw a post in December for a low-count SS model at around $600 and the first "I'll take it" was time-stamped only 2 minutes later. Sure beats a brand new one (if you can find one) at $800-ish.

Been debating about the NRA edition Mini-14, a bit steep but I like the profile of the 16" barrel.

Okay, just posted my comments on the feedback site. Hopefully the good folks at Sturm-Ruger will see fit to apply their quality to a 10-round magazine. BTW, sort of on this topic, can anyone recommend a brand of 10-rounder for the Mini that gives good reliability?

NRA edition is real nice. IMO, a worthy addition to any collection. Detachable magazine is great feature to have.

I just picked up a stainless/synthetic in .223, it's the first Mini I've ever bought, I've always wanted one just never got around to it till now.

I'm thinking about also getting a wood stock one in 7.62.

I've got a synthetic/stainless model as well. I was just thinking about the NRA edition becasue of the lower profile.

The Mini-30 has been on my list for awhile now. It's rare to find one in stock. I may need to just order one.

The gold medallion on the NRA is nice, IMO. Being a limited edition is also appealing.

Just buy the factory Ruger 20rd'ers as rebuild kits and permanently modify them into 10's.

Legal and easy.

Done and I also asked for them to make a mini that accepts AR mags. I'm sure they will get right on it.

There's an idea.:thumbsup: Yeah, but I doubt it.

Just sent my Target Mini back to Ruger.
I'll stick with ARs in 223 and M1-As in 7.62...

Bought two of them, and totally love them. Paid a premium for them though as they were the last two I could find locally (and no more could be ordered.) Don't regret it though.

Excellent, I'm gonna go and see what's available tomorrow. It'll go well with my NRA MKII.

Accurate gun. Just too front heavy. Thought SAGE SCAR stick would help but I couldn't reach the trigger comfortably.
