bought a brand new mini-14 ranch rifle a couple weeks ago. i dont have it in front of me but i believe serial starts with 580xxx

now the eagle flash hider dose not fit correctly. fits loosely and the screw to tighten is too far up (barrel ends before where the screw is)

so i guess there has been some changes to these new model ranch rifles. but i cant seem to find any exact info on those typ of changes to the new models.

i also heard a rumor that the aftermarket mags (large capacity) won't fit correctly in these new rifles? anyone know this to be true?

I just purchased a brand new SS Ranch Rifle today serial # 580XXX. The first thing I did when I got home was to insert one of my factory twenty round mags. Inserts and extracts just fine. Can't wait to try them out at the range.

Williegee is right, the new rifles still use the same mags.
