mini-14 180 series

  1. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Back in 1983 I bought an m-14 style front sight and flash hider combo for my 180 series mini. Last summer one of the prongs on the flash hider cracked, got off center and.....well, I broke the rest of them off so I could shoot OK. I want to replace it. So, who makes such now days ? BTW, my...

    I have about $ 300 in this Ruger I was wondering if you guys could give me any idea if I got a good deal it's made in 1976 that all I know. It's a 180 and in great condition

    I had an early wood handguard I out on a 183 series Mini. Would a wood handguard with the "C" spring clip on the underside (not 180 series type with little clips for lateral grooves in the barrel) fit on a 583 series with the stepped barrel? I really like the wood. Very M1 carbine-ish!
  4. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    So I already started an intro thread and got some nice welcomes. I would like to start a discussion in the mini forums. I purchased this 180 series from my step dad as they were hurting for money in a bad way. They had nearly all their hand guns in pawn thinking they would be able to bounce...

    I bought this mini 14 new in 1977. Does anyone else have n like this? It was made in Southport, CT and in another post someone said these are more rare. It also has the inscription "MADE IN THE 200th YEAR OF AMERICAN LIBERTY" on it.

    Hi all, new member here. My gun buddy recently got his hands on a 1976 180 series mini 14. He swaps guns more than changes his socks and asked me if i was inerested in it, he wanted me to get a hold of a saiga .223 as a trade ($430 or so for the Saiga). Now i already have the 581 tactical mini...

    I just bought a 1976 180 series "Liberty Gun" it's missing the original style flat metal front sling swivel with the pin. Anyone got one? Sure would be nice to make this vintage Mini-14 complete. Thanks, Mike
  8. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Hey all, I visited a small gun shop near where I live yesterday and found a 180 series mini 14. What caught my eye was the rear and front sights were like I had never seen before. Upon close inspection the serial number was somthing like 180-00723. I must have looked at a hundred pictures...
  9. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I came across an excellent, low rd count 180 yesterday at a show. Had seen picks of the early bolt HO, but didn't recall ever seeing it in person...so bought it. I remembered from years ago, when into mini's more than I am now, all the warnings of "avoid the early series", "no parts to be...
