    Hello everyone, I'm a new owner of a 584 series mini 14 ranch rifle and new to the forum. I'm looking into optics, and I think I've decided on using scope rings to mount over the receiver as opposed to a scout setup with an ultimak rail. I have a mild astigmatism, so one option I was looking...

    Reading an article on the 4 best scopes for Minis and the Sniper Compact 4x32 scope gets a positive mention. It's so cheap, one would doubt the quality but reading other reviews it's all gets good reviews. Anyone tried it? I know Minis can be tough on scopes and cheap usually means less than...

    I just bought a Leupold VX-1 3-9x40mm. I am not sure why or what I bought it for. Unfortunately I cant even blame it on a drunken interwebz impulse buy cuz I havent had a beer in over 2½ years. Would it be practical to scope my 581 mini with it?

    I have a 580 series Mini 14 with a UltiMAK rail and just purchased some Warne QD Medium 1RL rings. I was wondering what size of scope I could fit on the rifle? I know that medium rings are usually rated for up to 42mm objective and was actually looking at a scope that big (Redfield Battlezone...

    Ok guys, this is one I haven't figured out a good solution for yet and I'm interested in what you all do. I have a scope on my Mini and wondering what you all do when it comes time for a thorough cleaning. Do you keep your scope on or remove it? Keeping it on obviously eliminates the need...

    I have an '86 mini with the dove tails and want to mount a bsa red dot on it. What type of base will i need. It looks like i can only attach to one rather than two places on the rifle due to the short red dot scope. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated

    Howdy! My first post. I've got a mini 14 tactical and just put a Millett DMS scope on using Ruger 30mm rings. Looking at the setup I see the scope body getting nailed by brass. I like the height of the scope where it is now and also like the idea of not having a solid mount in the way of a brass...

Its time for new optics on my Mini 14 last spring after my dad talked me out of my Tikka .223 I picked up a new series Mini after a lot of research on here and knowing what I was getting into...
  12. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I recently picked up a Redfield 3-9x40 to mount on my 581 series all weather Ranch in .223 cal. I used the factory Ruger mounts that came with the rifle & noticed that in order to get a full picture at 9x in needed to slide it back on the mounts so the rear ring is only 1/8" to 3/16" from the...

    In the latest edition of the "American Rifleman" I saw the red dot site I wanted. To back up a bit........... I want to use the rings/mount that came with my 580 series Mini-14. I do not want to add rails or other tacti-cool parts to my Mini. I like the traditional look. Anyway, back to...
  14. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    A guy at the gun store told me that the front and rear factory rings are different heights because the mounts are not set at same height. I looked at the rings and they appear to be identical as does the mounting area height on the gun for each ring. Was the guy smoking somehing or are my eyes...
