mini-14 581 series

  1. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I have a 581 series Ranch Mini-14 (model#5816). The specifications currently available on Ruger's site are for the 582 series. I don't know if they've changed, but I would like to see the specifications for the 581 series. They aren't in my manual. I've done several web searches and found...
  2. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Howdy all, I've been counting the days till I buy a mini, and doing my homework on them, and today it all paid off. Picked up a brand new 581 series stainless mini 14 at a local gun show. Couldn't wait to get it out back and shoot it (after I cleaned it) I was impressed with it all around...

    This is a few pictures of my new 581+ series SS Mini 14, I've had it for about 2 months and decided to see if I could fit it into an older 184+ series all wooden stock with the wooden handguard, It only took a small amount of careful chisel work to remove about a 1/4" X 1/8" X 2" strip from...
