    Sorry, I meant for the standard 5 round mags. Though I'm interested in good deals on the 20s too. :)

    I'll keep that in mind. :) Right now, I don't even have a Mini so I'm just looking for extremely cheap mags in case I get one eventually. Weird... Ruger charges $30 for the 20 round mag and $26 for the 5 rounder!

    These look pretty nice: http://ruger.com/Firearms/FAProdView?model=5835&return=Y - anyone here shoot one yet?

    What did you pay for yours? How would you compare it to the average Mini's?

    but i have plenty of trigger time behind a NRA mini. the short and thicker barrel is a plus and the houge stock is quite nice. i like it quite a bit.
