Hey Cobra. About all I can tell ya is I believe your mini was built some where between 1978 -1980. I believe yours has a 10" rifling twist. You can still get parts, stocks, etc for it from Ruger, and many after market places. You can shoot any .223 Rem. cartridge or mil-spec. 5.65x45mm Nato cartridge. I believe the older mini's shot a little better than the newer ones. If you don't have a Manual for it, Ruger will send you one for free. While you have them on the line ask about date of manuf. and rifling twist. For a nickle a min. anytime use (10-10-636) 1-603-865-2442.

There is also a handy search button (upper right control panel) enter key words, all related posts will come up with your key words in RED. Welcome aboard.

SS or blue?

So how's it shoot?


Look into the Wolff springs & the recoil buffer. I think they make quite an improvement, and I think they are available for the 181 series on up.
