  1. Mini-14 Mini-30 Gallery
    I bought this mini 14 new in 1977. Does anyone else have n like this? It was made in Southport, CT and in another post someone said these are more rare. It also has the inscription "MADE IN THE 200th YEAR OF AMERICAN LIBERTY" on it.

    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...

    My brother just got a new mini from CDNN. The serial number starts with 580. My neighbor bought a new mini a month befor that with a serial number that starts with 581. Excuse my ignorance, but does the 580 indicate an older model, and if it does what is the difference?:unsure::unsure:
  6. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I've noticed a trend on other forums. Now, don't get me wrong, older mini's are seen as unfit for the purpose they were sold. But many folks are now getting them out of the safes where they have languished to be used for HD. Seems folks have realized there is little advantage to an older mini...

    Besides good firing pins..... DECENT SIGHTS! Front sight collar with protective wings, keep it looking stock, BUT, with an AR15 front sight assembly housed within. Rear sight. Again, keeping stock appearance, but with the standard A2 rear sight aperture and adjustment knob. Rear sight base...

    My first post. I know its overly long, but I hope you don't think it sucks.. I bought my 195 series mini 14 ranch in 99. It has always been fun to plink with in the desert, but then I just had to go put a scope on it to see what it could really do. I put on a Vortex 3-9x40 bdc diamondback with...

    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

    Howdy all, I've been counting the days till I buy a mini, and doing my homework on them, and today it all paid off. Picked up a brand new 581 series stainless mini 14 at a local gun show. Couldn't wait to get it out back and shoot it (after I cleaned it) I was impressed with it all around...

    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.

    Has anybody installed one of these on the Mini-14 yet... Pics? Choate M14 Look-a-Like- Blue For The Mini-14 Choate Recoil Compensator for Mini-14 made of solid steel, bath blued or S.S. Both models sight looks like the original M-14 Sight. The compensator is permanently attached to the gun...

    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). Now im on to sighting options and I had a Bushnell 4-12x40mm...

    So I am getting a Mini-14 in another month with my tax return, I have been doing some research on magazines and the results aren't good. Ruger makes a great 30 round metal magazine but the damned things cost nearly $40 a pop. I see that Tapco is making a Gen II version of it's magazines that...
  16. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Just wondering, what kind of mechanical failure(s) has anyone experienced with the Mini 14. How many rounds before failure? What caused the failure and the remedy?
  17. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    So there is the question. Why the Mini, and is it your "go-to" emergency rifle?
  18. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
