Well I am happy to report that I now am the proud owner of a new Stainless Ranch Mini 14 with a synthetic stock. I could not be happier!!! I went shooting with my brother and was amazed at how wonderful this little gun is and a what a pleasure it is to shoot.
For an early Christmas present my wife got me a beautiful Leupold silver finish compact scope 3-9 x 33 for my Mini. I am having mounted this weekend. I am going to have it bore sighted when it is installed. Dialing it in will be a new experience for me.
I am not very familure with scoped weapons so I have a few questions. I am wondering about cleaning the Mini 14 once the scope has been mounted. Hope these questions don't sound too stupid.
1. Can you field strip the Mini 14 without removing the scope.
2. If you do need to remove the scope to clean the weapon do you have to have it bore sighted again and dial it in again each time?
Also any advice anyone might have on fine tuning/dialing in my new scope would be a great help.
Thanks in advance for the help!!!!
