    Hi All, I was wondering what the heaviest grain commercial round people have put through their mini 14. I have a 580 tapered barrel and would like to use some decent sized rounds to give the red deer a hurry up :) I think my mini has a 1:9 twist and so far I have only put 62 and 64 grain...

    Well guys I am joining the rest of gang and finally picked up a Mini 14 yesterday. The deal was just to good to pass up. :D I did a TrueShot stabilizer, front sight, & flash hider/muzzle brake on my M30. It has served me well so far, but wanted to get other opinions for the M14 LE model. Since...

  7. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    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...

  9. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Just-for-the-fun-of-it question. I don't claim to be the expert here, in fact, I'm a Mini novice, but I recently acquired a 183 series Mini and I have to tell you the finish and stamping/roll marking of the older rifle receiver is noticeably better than my Tactical. I sure like the older rear...

  12. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I bought a butler creek folding stock, for my mini-14.(580 series, blue) I seem to have run into a little problem. The stock went on kind of snug, compared to the factory stock, but what got me, was when I tried to put the trigger group back in. I can't come close to spreading the stock enough...
  13. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I recently swapped into a like-new 2007-production Mini 14. Its primary role was to serve as a Patrol Carbine, but its.223 Remington cartridge and 'Ranch Rifle' designation also fit my secondary intentions for it quite well . Now, I don't have any heartburn for the AR15, but I definitely prefer...
