  2. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Anybody have an opinion on a trigger job? Bought my mini 6 months ago, love at first sight! Wondering how much a trigger job will improve accuracy? In addition, wondering how effective accu-struts are? I'm hooked, great forum.

    I'm looking for muzzle break recommendations. I'd like to get the best I can for under $50.00. I've seen and like the Mo-Reaper but can't justify the price. Scared of the really cheap stuff.

    Rather than fighting for and losing out,on mods to the mini Has any one bought and used one of these? I attest,I have been mini poor and spent way to much, I bet I have 50 magazines for them,and at one time owned seven,3 ,30s and 4,.223z This rifle here is less than I have in my asi mini...

    Have any of you tried those BETA mag clone korean 100 rnd drum mags in a Mini-14? I know it would be heavy, but I'm just curious as to if it's worth buying.

    i did a little research on the wilson 1911 recoil buffer. it seems to work pretty well with a mini 14 for most people. does it make any difference in how far the brass is ejected after installing the buffer? i reload and like to recover as much brass as can. thanks.

    Hi there. Does anyone know how one might remove the folding stock and its locking assembly? I also can't get the bolt/screw out that holds the pistol grip on, although the pistol grip did come off. It's a pretty unusual stock and forcing things didn't seem like a good idea. It needs...

    Hey guys...newby here. I've just bought a new (to me) Mini-14. Judging from the front sight (M1 Carbine type) it's a 580 or 581 series. I understand these rifles have reputation for inaccuracy. Be that as it may, I plan to mount a scope and try a few handloads to see how she does. BUT, as I...

    Is it possible to get a new secondary sear spring that will give a lighter trigger pull?
  11. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    We've all heard the expression...If it ain't broke.... Well, I just couldn't leave well enough alone. I had never touched the gas block on my 188 series, and had gotten her shooting pretty well thanks to all the "usual" mods. A couple of months ago I decided to loosen them all, and re-torqued...
  12. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Finally finished my Mini-14 with the modifications I want. This is a wood and blue 580 series with the “skinny” barrel. I like wood and blue steel. I’m never taking this into combat or going to Camp Perry with it. Nor will I ever use it to score “Boone and Crocket” points. This is a...

    Cant wait to trick this one. Glad I found you guys. I got this Mini just as you see it. I took it out and got it on paper but did not have time to fine tune it. I really would like any help anyone can give on the first things that I should do to get the most out of it. If I am reading this right...
