  1. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    NOTE: I tried to post pictures, but this BBS does not appear to like Google Drive photos. The links are available, at least. My 7-year-old son likes to do everything I do, and have everything I have, so I traded a pistol for a Mini-14. It was a Tactical version, and got rid of the side-folder...
  2. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I would like to know everyone's input on what would be the best type of finish to put on a 196 series ranch rifle? Something to cover all of the metal parts. Is this even possible, or do the moving parts (such as the bolt and such) have to be swapped out? I really like manganese phosphate...

    Hello all. I'm new to the venerable Mini-14, but I'm already in love and some might say too deep! I have purchased Accuracy Systems Inc's Harmonic Stabilizer II w/ Adjustable Gas Block and intend on installing it (pending the arrival of some proper tools). However, I have run into a slight...

  5. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I bought a new stainless steel mini 14 ranch rifle about ten years ago when I was a resident of California where my right to bear arms was being infringed and the state wouldn't allow me to buy an AR-15. At the time, it was my most expensive firearm purchase ever, IIRC it was about $550 plus...

    Hey folks, it's been a while. I haven't made a single post since this last New Years Eve. I just recently noticed that Hogue has a stock that'll fit our Mini-14s. I don't know how I wasn't made aware of this years ago<_<. My question(s) to those that own one: How do you like it? How's the...

    Hey, would anyone out there happen to have a blued secondary sear for the Mini-14 Ranch Rifle? I just got myself a new 582 Series Mini-14 Ranch Rifle, blued with synthetic stock. And although it's a beautiful gun, the one gripe I have is about the stainless trigger, hammer, and secondary sear...
  9. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I purchased a used 184-**** serial number mini 14 ranch rifle from a friend last year. His father had used it for varmint hunting and coyote control around his farm. He needed cash, I needed (wanted?) a semi-auto .223/5.56 rifle. BUT, I'm tall, with long arms (6'7 wingspan here). So I'm...
  10. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    It seems to me the price of mini-14s have stayed somewhat stable since the sandy hook shooting. Last night I looked at gunsamerica and gunbroker, mini-14 prices were in the $800 - $1,200 price range, while AR-15s have tripled in price. Before Sandy Hook a colt 6920 was selling at walmart for...

  14. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I have a series 184 with ATI folding stock and picatinny rail. I can use iron sights as in current config. I'd like to find some scope mounts that the bottom would stand off the picatinny some so irons would still be usable. Sort of like an upside down "U" for the clamping mechanism, where the...

  16. 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.

    Good vid showing the MINI 14 at 200 yards. I think the guy was rushing too much but he got some hits.

    I just bought a 1976 180 series "Liberty Gun" it's missing the original style flat metal front sling swivel with the pin. Anyone got one? Sure would be nice to make this vintage Mini-14 complete. Thanks, Mike
  20. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Hello all, I have it on good authority that the -14 action will fit quite nicely in a Clyde's Mini-30 SCAR stock and that the only difference between the two models is the mag well is larger on the -30 stock. The magazine guide built into the trigger section of the -14 would resolve this extra...
