Hello all, new to this board... glad I found you!

Here's my latest Mini-14 prob.
181 series Mini GB folder in 95%, bought used on an auction, upon receiving, took to range and found it to shoot 12" too high, discovered previous ower had filed the front sight/bayo lug about 1/8".

Sent the rifle to Ruger to have sight replaced, now that its back it still shoots 12" high (@ 50 yds). Rear is all the way down so there is no more adjustment.

Mounted to another Mini factory stock (full) thinking maybe was warped or something, made no difference. Still 12" high.

Any ideas? Need to keep close to original to preserve GB value (if there is any)

Thanks in advance

Aim Low....hehe sorry couldn't resist. How about throw a red-dot scope on there. At least that'll give you some room to make adjustments.

To Special Poop,

I was expecting that! That's OK, it's dead on if I shoot from Texas to your state! HE HE HE :D

Thought about a red dot, in process of adding, I just thought it would be nice to have the sites for B/U

BTW crazy as it sounds even though it shoots 12" high, groups under 1/2" at 50 (3 shot grp)

Thanks for the welcome, I'll be ready for you next time!

:rapid:

then keep it, some folks don't get that grouping with $500 worth of add ons!!!!

I got an Aimpoint ML2 and finally had a chance to get it into action last weekend. As far as red-dots go it's a little pricey but man, I used to have BSA, and this thing shot the pants off of it and damn near came close to my Leupold at 200yds (of course sand-bagged and prone).

anyway have fun, sounds like a great excuse to buy more stuff!!

I was considering the Ultimak Scout for the mount, did a search but didn't find any "results" I've got an Aimpoint ML2 set up on a M4, thought I'd move it over just to see how it felt!

I have 5 other GB's three shoot really good... tighter than what I've seen posted on this board, the other 2 are NIB stuffed in the safe for a rainy day. (Got really crazy with tax refund and once I got started, couldn't stop)

Better the GBs in your gun safe than more money in the hands of Uncle Sam. Wait! That money could be used to help fund a $15 million government study on the proper height of toilet seats!

BillVan, Call Ruger and tell them that you need another peep sight. They make three (3) different peep sights. Tell them that your GB shoots high and that the rear sight is bottomed out and they will send the correct peep sight. The difference in the peep sight is the placement of the peep hole. This is one that is centered, another that is below the center of the sight and one that is higher that the center of the sight. When I was at the Factory Armory school, they (Ruger) mentioned these different peep sight. They also mentioned that if after changing the peep sight and the weapon still will not zero, then send the weapon back to the factory for them (Ruger) to evaluate. Most likely they will replace the barrel. Anyway I hope this helps. R6721

Thanks R6721,

I'll call Ruger in the morning regarding different peeps. That will solve it if I can get the one with the hole below center.

What's "NIB"?
I assume your "Rainy Day" is the same as my SHTF? I am trying to assemble a kit for my family just for that occasion. Is there a good list of items anyone would care to suggest?

Red Dot - if the "Rainy Day" lasts a bit too long, there may not be batteries available to power it up. I'd expect a plain optical sight plus mandatory iron sights a must for such a weapon. Am I thinking right?

Regards,
Voruzon.

"NIB" means New in Box. These are pristine never been fired, could be used for SHTF but since I am lucky to have other more suitable... these are mainly collector/investment pieces.
Right about batteries, we agree on iron sights as back-up.

Regarding Family kit... besides defensive weapons and the ammo to support them along with spare parts, cleaning and maint. Food and water are probably the most important. Alot of guys think weapons are the only SHTF item they need... and they stated that they will take whatever they need. This will be a short lived episode for them. At some point they will come up against someone that has the means to defeat them and then they would be dead. Special consideration must be taken while prep'ing a Family Kit. List below are some things to think about:
1. If kids are young, what will they need?
2. Stay put or try to escape area for a more secure position.
3. Transportation... on foot cross country, vehicle?
4. Transporting of your equipment, how heavy, how much, who can carry what?
5. Who to trust?
6. Communications with others in your party

I could go on forever... start thinking and preparing now when it happens there will not be enough time for prep. Then you will be stuck like cattle waiting to be slaughtered. We spend trillions (our military) as a country for SHTF contingencies... 911 should have taught every freedom loving man that you need to be prepared to protect yourself and your family, the government can't protect you. Good Luck! Sorry for my rambling. I'm better now:eek:
