    Ruger mini 14/30 hand guard options just thought it might help to get a simple info thread out there on ruger mini hand guard options. not sure that i even know all of them, so maybe we'll get some surprises. if you have a rare hand guard (or even better, custom), please post some pics and...

    Are there any that beat the 2009 Ruger video?

    The title says it all-- How perfect must the gas block gap be for reasonable accuracy and as centered as possible windage? I ask as I've seen many threads noting how torque setting and the like can be important as well as an "even" gap, but haven't seen much on exactly how precise one should...

    Does anyone have a saved copy of GunDocs bolt disassembly video. Appears he has taken down the site. I need to replace my extractor and I can't seem to get it out. Doc's video made it look easy but I am having little success. Thanks, guys. RG

    I'd like to get a set of undersized gas bushings, but Gundoc is staying out of the shop for at least a while. He suggested I talk to Walkenbear. I tried sending a PM but haven't had a response yet. Walkenbear, are you still making bushings?

    I did the trigger job off you tube as i have on many Minis but on this 189 Mini 30 i took off just a bit too much, now it shoots 2 round bursts..... Anyone know where to get trigger parts other than Ruger, I don't want to send the gun in ??? Thanks in advance.

    Folks, fairly new to this forum and first thread I've started. I have a 181-series Mini-14GB model, blued, and all-original except for the stock. Short of bedding the stock (I have two - an ATI Strikeforce and the Choate folder that came with it when I bought it used in 1980), I am looking for...

    &%@#*! Mini is STILL jamming! Frustrated new Mini owner. Got a stainless Ranch Rifle that had extraction/ejection issues when new. It went back to Ruger & got a new Op rod, extractor & bolt hold open. Upon receipt & retesting I had a bizarre extractor failure I recently posted about. Well, I...
