    Don't know if this has been posted before but this is the response I received today. "what size gas bushing is in this rifle? Rifle cycles violently and damages brass because it appears to hit the operating rod and throws brass into the next county. If an exact diameter...

    Are M1 rear sights a good replacement for Ranch rifles?

    Do you think a mini-14 ranch have enough stoping power to kill a hog at a 150 yrds ?

    do they still say "Ranch" on them?

    hi guys well since I have tacticool covered 360 degrees I was in the mood for something with just iron sights and no gadjets or any other crap . I was debating building a 20 inch a4 upper , but I took my wife to wal-mart to do some grocery shopping and while I wondered off to look for some ammo...

    Okay, I have owned 5 mini's over the past years, the last three were Ranch Rifles, two of which were 580 series. I really like the mini...which is why I've owned so many. I hate the lack of accuracy...which is why I have dis-owned so many. I saw when Ruger came out with a Target model with...

    :confused: I have a 2004 Mini-14 Ranch with just 20rds through it and wanted to start upgrading to improve accuracy. I'm not sure if I should follow through with my money in this gun or sell it and get a new 20rd heavy barrel model to replace it with the same money. What you guys think?

    I went to put a scope on my new (less than 1 year) stainless mini-14 ranch model, and the front scope ring "cut" on the rifle seems a little out of tolerance. Has anyone returned a rifle to Ruger for some additional machining of the scope ring cuts?

    I have been lurking and posting on the Mini-14 forum for a little over two years. I have learned a lot and have always found this forum to be most helpful. Today I traded my Mini-14 Tactical for a S&W M&P15 PS. The PS is Smith's piston AR, so I am staying with the same operating system. I...

    Is the Mini 14 model 5805 one of the newer rifles manufactured after the retooling and with a slightly heavier barrel. Thanks Bill

    I was looking at the Mo-Rod device tonight. Who else has one from this forum? I am on the verge of purchasing a stabilizer, and I like how this one looks. It also seems to be very functional going by the testimonies. So, what kind of luck have you had with yours? Also, can anyone give me a...

    I received the Tech-Sights Mini200R for my 187 series Ranch the other day. Out of the box I found it to be a solid unit, and had no issues mounting it to the rifle. Fiddling with it prior to installation revealed the windage knob to be very stiff to turn (actually painful to the fingers). I...

    Just-for-the-fun-of-it question. I don't claim to be the expert here, in fact, I'm a Mini novice, but I recently acquired a 183 series Mini and I have to tell you the finish and stamping/roll marking of the older rifle receiver is noticeably better than my Tactical. I sure like the older rear...
  15. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Last week I bought a new 581 series mini-14 ranch rifle (wooden stock). Yesterday I went to the range and put around 30 rounds through it. It performed flawlessly and I shot 3.5" groups at 50 yrds using the iron sights. Last night I installed the ultimak rail and a Bushnel Holosight. This...
