  1. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Folks, fairly new to this forum and first thread I've started. I have a 181-series Mini-14GB model, blued, and all-original except for the stock. Short of bedding the stock (I have two - an ATI Strikeforce and the Choate folder that came with it when I bought it used in 1980), I am looking for...

    I have 181 series that I had ASI cut down the barrel and install a muzzle brake. It is now the minimum legal length. I also got some new gas bushings which I started with the smallest size that was .040. The action would not cycle so I installed the largest (.050). It helped but failed to...

  7. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I recently decided to add some magnification to my 181 mini, ending up with a 3x9 on a B-Square mount. I was at a local range for a bit sighting it in at about 25 yards. I went out the other day to a buddies place and we were shooting prone on top of his garage looking at about 100-125 yard...
