I dont have the rifle yet, but I figure since Im doing alot of research on the gun Id ask the question I havent had answered through a google search. My 30 is a 581-5xxxx if that helps. Thanks yall!
My 581-04xxx series mini 30 has a .620 thick barrel but it is not tapered and it has the tri-lobe front sight. Do I have some sort of a franken mini?
Had the same questions on one we bought. I thought they were supposed to be tapered too? After a quick call to Ruger they said that it was the non tapered barrel with the protected sight. I said yes. So he told us that it was early profile barrels that we used up, basically, and that the new design is the tapered but there are a lot of good non tapered barrels being used and installed, all of which have the new redesigned sights. Made sense not to throw out thousands of barrels.
