Better Rear Sight WANTED

3357 Views 18 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  reloader
I am hopeing someone can point me in the right direction. I'm looking for a better Rear Sight for my Mini... The factory (Plastic? seems sloppy (I can move the whole thing around by hand) and the clicks are too course for me. I also don't like the pinned turns, I'd rather they be dialed with postive clicks.

I want to preserve the military aspect as much as possible so I don't want any high tech plastic. What I really want is an M14 or M1 Style tooless adjustable rear peep. (Steel!)

If I can buy an M1 Garand Rear Sight will it drop right into my Mini without having to machine?

Can anyone point me to a Web page that might have something?

Thanks in adavnce!!!

Sgt Shellback,
There's obviously some confusion here over the ranch rifle and the standard. Both are Ruger Mini-14 but as far as rear sights and scope mounts go, they are different supersonic-launching-platforms.

The M1 carbine rear sight could be cut down, machined, or grinded so the dove-tail mount fits on the ranch rifle.
A lot of work but do-able.

The standard mini has some advantages because there are several replacements available in the Brownell's catalog. The ranch rifle is at a disadvantage in this case. If anyone knows of a match-grade replacement rear sight for the ranch rifle, PLEASE let all of us know.
