Forgive me if this has been brought up, but I was wondering if there were any other fellow Mini Owners in the great state of New Jersey (note sarcasm) that can recommend a quality Gunsmith. I'm looking to get a trigger job on my 582 series Mini Thirty and have the barrel cut down...
Hi, I just bought a new Mini-14 Ranch Rifle the other day and put only about 60 rounds through it. After cleaning I've noticed there is a lot of bluing missing on the bolt and the receiver. Is this finish wear normal? Seems extreme to me after so few rounds... Serial number prefix is 582. Pics...
I am a long time lurker, first-time poster and I've finally thought up a query worth posting. After much consideration, I've chosen a *used* mini-14 to be my first long-gun purchase. After saving up some more, I plan to send it off to GunDoc to have it fixed up with the works--...
I'm looking to purchase (or trade for) a Ruger mini-14 wood stock and handguard. It must be from 181 series (1978) or later. I think they were still putting the wooden hand guards on the mini at least through 1983 (maybe later). I'd like for the parts to include all the metal...

I am a man in his early 20s looking for THE ONE rifle to invest in for the long haul.
I have done extensive reading on the AR, AK, XCR, and VZ 58 and some other semis.
The first time I heard of the Mini, it was interesting. I left it alone, then and back to it, left it alone, and then came...

181 series mini, produced in 1980. Previous owner claims 20 rounds was all he ever shot through it, plus another ten by me to test. Three minor blemishes on the stock, slight discoloration on parts of metal, nothing serious though. Comes with a hand made wooden case (Whoo Hooo) and one five...
First of all I am a new (noob) mini owner! Cool rifle. I am looking at getting a red dot and low mount but I was wondering if flip-up sights wouldn't be a good back up... Im not a big fan of the sighting, especially the rear.
Pro's and cons of flip ups?
Hello, new poster here with some questions about the various Mini-14 models.
I've wanted to get a rifle for a long time, and I've finally settled on the Mini-14 for various reasons: One of the biggest being that I live in New York, and so the laws are somewhat restrictive.
Also please note...
Mini-14 magazines on hand:
2 ea Masen (?) 10 rnd w/ Ruger baseplates and followers
2 ea ProMag 20 rnd
3 ea Masen 20 rnd
1 ea stainless steel PMI (?) 30 rnd
Magazines for Glock 19 or 26
Magazines for AR15
My vision was to trade out the whole lot, but other options are on the table.
