  1. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I bought this Mini-14 Tactical back right after Barry took office in 2009. It's a 580xxxx series with black polymer stock and factory flashhider. I was running .223 and 5.56mm ammo from Remington, Federal, and 1 or 2 other good mfgs. The mags. Factory 20 and 30 round, Tapco gen 2 30 round...
  2. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Mentioned some of this in my intro post. I found a recent production Mini-14, mint for a bit over $700 at a local gun shop. Has a nice stock with almost a tiger stripe pattern to it, two 5 round and one 10 round Ruger factory magazines, and nice padded leather sling with the Ruger emblem...
  3. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Ruger's current catalog says all models of the Tactical Mini-14 are stainless steel. They show black colored versions and the company photo of the plain SS shows a pencil barrel model. Do they make them in all SS then parkerize the SS to make it look blued/black? Did they used to make blued...
  4. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I was reading a post where it was suggested that Ruger did some cold tempering of their barrels i.e. cryo treatment. So I emailed Ruger for the straight skinny and below is my reply from Ruger FYI: "Thank you for using the Ruger On-Line Customer Support Request Form. This e-mail is in...
  5. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I recently changed my 580 series synthetic stock Mini 14 out to a Butler Creek Folding stock. The installation went fine --tight fit and smooth no hitch firing. My BCF stock has two screw mounting holes (one on each side) and I fully expected that I was going to have to order a stock...

  7. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I just purchased a mini 14 new and today i finaly had a chance to try it out. I didn't shoot that much, but it failed to fire 2 shots on the last mag. I had pulled the bolt back and locked it before each failure to fire. Each time i pulled the hammer back and gently let the bolt back instead of...
  8. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    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...
  9. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    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...
  10. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I am curious about the new mini's with the thicker barrels. I have just purchased one of the tacticals with the ATI stock and the 16 1/8in barrel. I have taken it out shooting, but did not get a chance to do any real testing. Do to a current financial shortage I will not be able to take it out...
  11. 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...
