    Over the past few months I have been looking at buying another AR. After doing a good bit of research I have narrowed down my choices to Spikes and a DS Arms. Spikes - makes a great rifle, is mil-spec, people love it. DS Arms - known more for its FN/FAL then its AR-15s. The thing is, I have a...

    Scottsdale Gun Club touts the LMT as very reliable, but it sells for $ 1249. Aim.com sells the Spikes Tactical for $ 770. I'd like to buy from a bricks and mortar dealer so I can get quick service on any issues, but the price difference is an issue. Any opinions?

    I'm going to buy a rifle off a buddy of mine next week. He has a Colt Le6920, a Smith and Wesson,and a Bushmaster. All are carbines with 16" barrels. He wants a grand for the Colt and a hundred or so less for the others. The frontrunner for me is the Colt. Is it that much better than the...

    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...

    Late last year when on the road for work I took a "lunch break" and stopped by one of the stores I stop by when passing through. This store rarely has anything I'm interested in, but when it does, it's good. I grabbed a .357 Redhawk there in the past. This time I find a beat-up 185 Mini-14 for...

    Was at a gun shop today and found a mini 14 stock in a bin of used stuff. It is wooden but has a rifle style butt plate ruger marked. It had a little black near the forend but I bought it just because I had not ever seen one before. Here are some pics comparing it to my current stock. Any info...

    Pros & Cons of a GB-vs-580 Tactical. I have a possible opportunity of getting either a blued 580 Tactical (Standard w/ syn stock) or a SS 180series GB. If the funds come available, then I could get the 580 Tac., 2/20rd Ruger Mags, 1/30rd reliable aftermarket, rings, some el cheapo glass, and a...

    The Accu-Strut website says: "Reduces group size 50-75% for most older rifles with straight profile barrel and up to 33% for newer, tapered barrels*" So how does the performance compare between an older 580 series w/ a pencil barrel and Accu-Strut vs. a newer 580 series with the tapered...

    Here is my Ranch Rifle. I just finished the home made strut using the UTG clamps and made the strut out of 304 stainless rod that was media blasted to better match the Mini's barrel finish. It has the Ameca Arms Scout rail and is wearing a NcStar 2X7 scout scope. It was one of the early Ranch...

    Hi guys. I am currently in the process to trade for a 185- series Mini 14. I'm getting this rifle sight unseen, trading it for another rifle I own, because the other party and myself are separated by about 300 miles. Anyway, this will be my first Mini 14, and my very first .223 gun of any...

    Traded this for a Yugo AK47 underfolder. I'm sure I'll have no regrets, I hope the owner of my AK feels the same way. First step: figure out how to attach this modified M14 handguard at the back. I think I'll reinforce the handguard with some sheetmetal and fiberglass, then rivet the original...

    The new Kel Tec carbine is an awesome bug out, truck rifle or lightweight rifle. It's a .223 and takes AR-15, 10,20 and 30 round Mags. It folds in half and locks back with one pin. It has a barrel just over 16" It holds two 10 round Mags in the bottom of the buttstock that pull out easy, but...

    Greetings, I am looking for 5 round magazines for my Target Model Mini 14. Could someone help me with a supplier? Alas, 5 round mags are the max we are legally allowed here in Canada for any semi-auto centre fire. We can have 20 or 30 round mags but they must be pinned to 5 rounds only. Thank...

    I am seriously considering accurizing my mini 14 through either Clark Custom Gunsmithing or Accuracy Rifle Systems. I am looking for feedback from anyone who has had any experience with either of these companys. ARS seems to promise more (better barrel, trigger and accuracy), but I did read one...
