build a mini from scratch?
A local gun store has some mini 14 gb stainless non-ranch receivers and barrels for $50 each. Only one still has the front sight and flash hider still on and the receivers are stripped, no bolt, bolt catch, etc., and most had the rear sights removed.
My question is, do you think it would be worth it to buy one or two and slowly piece a mini together? The only thing I should have to send them to Ruger would be to get bolts fitted, but other than that I could find everything else online or at gun shows. Also, how cheap could I reasonably expect to complete the build of the rifle, minus stock ir magazines? I already have a spare factory handguard, stock and magazines.
Yut-either you know what it means or you don't
