  1. Rifles
    I had my heart set on a black/stainless model, but I found a black synthetic/matte blue model at a price so low I couldn't pass it up. Now I'm starting to research my scope options. Little background, first: I currently only have (1) scoped rifle, a Marlin 60. I own a pre-ban Mini which I...

    Current state of my 580 series Mini-14 Ranch. I recently replaced the factory rear sight with a Tech Sights rear peep, as well as the addition of the SOCOM Accu-Strut. Sling is Specter Gear as is the mag pouch. Tonight's addition is the Vortex Razor HD 1-4x24. Can't wait to get it out to the...

    Sorry for posting 2 threads back to back. Im looking to get another gun. I'm torn between a Springfield Armory M1A, a Ruger Mini-14, and a good old M1 Garand. Ihave had an awesome experience with my ruger 10/22 and the mini-14 is at a good price. The M1A is just a beast but is just too costly...

    I have the newest 582-xxxx serial numbered ranch rifle and was wondering if a muzzle brake is legal on it? The mag is a legal detachable one. If it is can anybody recommend one? Its model number is 5805 so I don't even know if muzzle brakes even fit on that model? Thanks!

    They usually have pistol grips and collapsable stocks but is this illegal on a ruger mini that doesn't classify as an assault rifle? If it is legal, is there any better stocks out there that are affordable up to $200-$300 ? Which one do you prefer the Tapco or ATI? Thank you Heres a link so you...

    All this talk about bant rifles has me bummed Soooo... I'm going to get rid of the junky stock on my Mini-14, a Butler Creek folder the question is ... SCAR, or Archangel .. I certainly like the SCAR, and the Arch. looks like you can not clean the rifle properly without removing the stock ...

    looking to purchase one of these for my pre-ban mini-14 project. installed a stabilizer/heat-sink rod under the barrel in front of the gas block, added a flash hider and hk-style shrouded front sight, laid the barreled action in a factory folding stock that i still can't believe cost that much...

    Hey guys quick question about a friends Mini-14. He was asking me if it is normal for the charging handle to rattle around. I told him I hadn't handled a Mini-14 enough to tell if it was normal. The handle seems to be loose on the bolt and rattles when fired and while carrying it. I can't...

    I put a deposit down on a mint Mini-14 factory folder. It appears unfired and mint. 184 series. I am awaiting the serial # history from ruger to confirm its a true factory folder. It all looks correct but for piece of mind I contacted ruger and they will send a document for future proof. Looks...

    I might be wrong but as I understand the AWB laws here in NY, I can not buy and install a Ruger factory folding stock on a common pre-ban 183-series Mini-14 chassis (that's semi-auto with a removable magazine) if the rifle has spent it's life in a standard fixed stock... that it could be...

    I was kind of in the same boat as everyone else who would like a steel rail for one reason or another. My reason is the mini 14 came with steel scope rings that mount to the factory mounting points of the rifle. These mounts are actually pretty nice but I wanted a rail to mount on the factory...

    What seems to be the norm for a used Mini14 of late? (Black synth, blue finish, has a mediocre scope on it?). Also, are pre-ban Hi Cap mags still floating around (legally) for these, and how would one ID them?
