  1. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I've noticed that ASI sells factory new mini 14/30 barrels for between $99-$149. It mentioned that it would need to be headspaced and indexed. I was wondering if it was possible for someone who is not a gun-smith to be able to install the barrel themselves. Would a barrel vice, head space...

    I love the Mini 14 and have a 196 series, I like using 10 round mags, anyone have any favorite brands and sites to get them at?

    OK, first Mini 30 on order, due in about a week. I could only get it with a polymer stock, so I picked up a used wood stock and I am refinishing it. Question: The wood stock has bolt holes on either side of the magazine and the polymer stock does not. What are the holes for? Are they special...

    I have an unspent round stuck in my mini 14. The action closed all but a quarter of an inch and won't move in or out. How can I get the action to move? Thanks

    Newby here. I have read a lot about changing the gas bushing, but it is not clear to me what's the benefit. Would someone enlighten me? Many thanks. R/Chris Woods

    Ok….so I have been running this through my head for a while because I enjoy the Mini so much BUT in factory form it really has some drawbacks. I am also not completely happy with the current aftermarket options even when you use a stock like I currently own which is the Archangel Sparta(which I...

    So I just got a my Mini 14 and I have been cleaning, shooting, and affectionately touching it for about a week now. Everything functions fine but there are a few little oddities that I would like to compare with you. 1) My slide/bolt combo feel reluctant. Especially as I move the slide closer...

    Ok, I know what you're thinking. "Not another 5.56/.223 thread." You're in luck! This isn't that thread. I just picked up my new Mini 14 yesterday and noticed that the receiver is stamped "5.56 NATO." Is that usual? Everywhere I look I hear people's are stamped "cal .223"

    Hey guys, I plan to thread my Mini 14 (580 series) barrel and add a muzzle device to it. My questions are: 1)Where would you get a barrel threaded at? Would you just look around locally or ship it somewhere? 2) What device would you suggest? 3) About how much would this cost? I'm wanting to...

    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...

    I have always thought the mini 14 was a cool gun. Now that I've started looking for a shtf gun, I've been studying the mini. It looks like a winner. The other gun I'm looking at is the LWRC M6-sl. The problem is that it is $1600. It is my first choice. It is a gas piston gun that looks to...
