Fully concur!For now it may work fine. Follow M14/M1A guidelines for lubrication. As much as I love Ruger products, there is some bad advise coming from Ruger concerning their own products. And they're not the only company that officially don't seem to understand many things about their products. The Mini manuals have been full of errors since I first picked up a Mini-14 manual in 1988. I ignore much of what is in my Mini-30 manual.
IMHO a potential or current Mini owner should become well acquainted with the M14/M1A, it's function and maintenance before he touches a Mini-14/Mini-30.
