Hi all. My mini 14 was made in july 1976. The left side of the receiver has more functions than the newer ones. What is the difference in this receiver and a new one? And, why did they change them? I think it has a rolling block instead of standered.Ruger sent me the wrong manual for it and now have to wait another week to get the right one. All help and info is much appreciated. thanks **** Dawg :rapid: :samurai: :beer: :cool:

**** Dawg. Check the Liberal Establishment Trophy Rack. I believe it has been seen there. Its like the Star Trek transporter--the image fades out once in awhile, but is getting stronger.:usa: :rapid: :2guns: :ar15:

Hey **** dog. Can you post a picture in the gallery? I have heard from other 180-series members, that besides the bolt having a roller, the receiver is a different width. Thats why most stock manuf. do not make a stock for it.

I don't have a camera right now. Have been waiting on them to get cheaper. I will probably buy one before the month is out and i will post my picture then. The barrel has a 1 in 10 twist. Ruger told me that they don't make parts for it anymore and that if it tears up to send it in to them and they wil give me a new one at a considerable discount. Not to bad in my opinon. I new I liked Ruger I like em even more now.I think I would like to put it in a bull pup stock but I don't know anything about them,except, the way they look. Am thinking about the evil black effect. Anyone know anything about the accuracy with this configuration?It defintetly has the roller bolt and the receiver is alot different from the new ones.Well I tend to get long winded so talk to y'all later. **** Dawg:rapid: :D Love my A6 configuration on my Browning .30 cal

Sounds like my old 180 series. The see-saw lever on the side is the bolt hold open and release lever. It does the same thing as the pin on top of the receiver on the newer guns. My 180 had the roller bolt actuator, wood upper handgaurd, and a slightly thiner barrel than the newer versions. I thought the machining was also of a higher quality. I have heard this was because the earlier guns were almost a hand-fit one-off proposition.
