Modifying an AR-15 clip

Has any one ever modified an AR-15 clip to work in a mini 14 or is there any chance at all it might work?

    Well drilling the hole in the front would be no problem.

    Adding the lug to the back of the mag might be an issue.

    There was a company about 8-10 years ago made a combo mag that fit both.

    Since Ruger is selling factory mags again I see less of a point. I know they are not cheep, but they WORK unlike most of the aftermarket stuff.

    Thats kind of my thought Nwcid, the hole is no problem, and i think I might have a solution to the lug. The Ruger mags that work best are Ruger proprietary. I am just kicking around the idea of an AR clip since they are so readily available, Thanks for the input.

    Ram line made mags that were supposed to work in Mini's and AR's, I have 2 or 3 new in pkg ones that I bought during the 'panic buys' of Clinton. Never used them so I can't say how they work, being RAMLine probably poor side of good to great. So to answer your question, yes it could be done but why bother?
