gas block

  1. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I just got approved to SBR my 582 Mini 30 Tactical. I plan to take the barrel down to 12" and run it suppressed most of the time. I have read threads by people that have either SBR'ed a mini, or suppressed a mini, but cannot find advice from someone who has done both. Obviously, I would want...

    Most recently, I determined with help from people here on the board, that I was pushing too much bullet down the barrel; I'd been shooting various Nosler, Hornady and Sierra 150 grain bullets and had numerous FTEjects and a stovepipe or two. The extractor, in all cases has been doing its job...

    Hey guys... Could someone take a minute and snap a shot of the top of their gas block?? I've read that the gas block screws are supposed to be staked, but mine are not. I believe I know what staked is but now I'm questioning myself. My screws don't extend past the holes and is about flush...

    Crooked/canted/tilted Gas Block Hey Mini-Lovers... I recently picked up my new 582 series Mini Thirty a few weeks ago. Been to the range twice and I am loving it!! Problem... After cleaning her the first time, I lined up a small Magpul Pic rail on the bottom of my stock and I realized...

    OK, I had my SS All Weather Ranch rifle all nice and dialed in to shoot 1-1.5" groups at 100 yds from a rest, scoped, .045" gas bushing, rear buffer, Accu-Strut, trigger work, crown, bedding shims, etc. The gas block was retorqued when the bushing was replaced and hand tightened with a 9/64...
  6. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I recently aquired a 180 series mini 14 rifle, took it out to shoot it and it was having cycling problems, so i did some reading and found out the gas block is supposed to have a tiny bushing in it, took mine apart and the bushing was missing. I am not sure if any mini 14 bushing will fit it or...

    just wanted to pass along a cleaning tip. after cleaning the gas block area i sprayed it with lite coat of rem oil which is a dry teflon lube. my usual method of cleaning is to spry it down with syn safe gunscrubber. well after 100 rounds it only took 2 short blasts of gunscrubber to clean it...

    We've all heard the expression...If it ain't broke.... Well, I just couldn't leave well enough alone. I had never touched the gas block on my 188 series, and had gotten her shooting pretty well thanks to all the "usual" mods. A couple of months ago I decided to loosen them all, and re-torqued...

    Anyone have any time saving tips for cleaning around the piston/gas block area on the Mini? I ran only 100 rds or so through it the other day, and it took some time to get all that crap off! Is there anything that you do after or before you shoot to cut down on the cleaning time? Appreciate...
  10. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I couldn't find anything about this question in the previous posts, so I'll ask: I'm about to re-torque the gas block screws on my 580 mini 14 tactical, and I'm wondering how I'll be able to align the gas block once I go to put it back on the barrel. Are there indexing marks or some sort of...
