Will Ruger send me a whole bolt assembly or even just a bolt without shipping my mini 14 in to them? If so what is the process and if not is there any other place that will? Thanks.

As far as I know, you must ship the rifle to Ruger. They will replace the bolt and keep the old one. This may have changed, but thats what I gather...

Got mine back from Ruger in about 30 days. They did the repair after I sent them the whole rifle. Really great service though.

I think the reason they won't send you the bolt directly is that thing called "headspace". A new bolt needs to be headspaced to the barrel so you get proper lock up and chambering. Improper headspacing can be a bad thing :(
