  1. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I took the new Mini Model 5846 to the range today. It was not pretty at first. How much break in does a mini need? Ejection/loading problems. The trigger guard would fall down causing malfunctions. After 20 to 25 rounds it all started working right. Newt

    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...

    I have an older Mini 14 tactical with an ATI factory folding stock on it. I would like to replace it with a fixed stock. Will a Mini 30 synthetic stock fit it ?
  4. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I recently bought a Bushmaster XM15-E2S M-4. Nice rifle. But..... Kinda wishing I would have took the time to get a Mini-14 Tactical now. Can't help it. Just like Old School Iron & Wood. Was thinking about trading for a nice Tactical Model but might hang on to it and start saving again.
  5. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    So I bought a old 188 series Mini not to long ago, the price was just right and it already had all the bells and whistles on it. It came with a choate flash hider that has a nice front post, M1 carbine sights, and a hogue stock. The only thing I have done to it is install Wilson Combat 1911...

    Ok so my Mini 14 Tactical is almost done and boy I think its looking good. I have replaced the stock with the Hogue Overmolded Ghillie Tan stock and also duracoated the rifle in coyote brown(except sights, bolt, and operating handle).

    This past December I purchased a brand new 581 series Mini-14 Tactical (blued/synthetic stock). This is my first semi-auto rifle. I have a few semi-auto pistols and everything else is a bolt rifle or pump shotgun. After a long winter, crappy weather on days off, etc, I finally made it to the...

    Interested if anyone has tried this and if there's any noted improvement in accuracy. Thanks.
  10. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    My Plan for my 581 "tactical". I really like this rifle very compact and a blast to shoot. Anyway after waiting and researching here is my plan: I'm going to glass bed the action first. This seems to be the greatest budget upgrade to accuracy. Next trigger job and medium sized gas bushing...
  11. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Ok you guru's out there, tell me this. I need a ring to mount a Vortex red dot on my mini 14 tacticle. I want to get the medium height ring to keep things as low as possible. If I use this ring, will the ejecting brass clear the sight? The sight only uses one ring. Ring: #4B30...

    I'm putting a scope on the Mini-14 Tactical. Not sure I am crazy about the side mounts unless anyone has had good experience with them. Many brands I knnow. I like the ones that Jack Weigand and [email protected] have, specifically the [email protected] model. Thoughts please. Thanks.Jerry
  13. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    This is my new, official, stream lined thread for the tactical magazine release for the Mini. It has been a long road with lots of input, ideas, and motivation coming from people here at PU. I decided to start a new thread because there are important things about the mag release that people...
