  1. Ruger Semi-Auto
    I have a Ruger Mini-30 Ranch rifle (581 model), that i had bought used (with no signs of wear) and I cant seem to get it sighted in for the height. I still have the factory rear peep sight, and when I move all the way up I am still shooting about 3" above the bullseye, and can't get it any...
  2. Ruger Semi-Auto
    I love my Mini-14's... I have 2... I thought I could turn one into a do all everything rifle. But, I was wrong.... thousands of dollars later, I figured it out- but, the journey was worth every penny. I have a ss mini-14 ranch and a tactical pistol grip version. The tactical mini would be my...
  3. Ruger Semi-Auto
    Went to the range to get some time with my Mini-14 and kept noticing my point if impact was off after ever group at 50 yards. I'd adjust, fire another group and my POI would be off in another direction. I got frustrated and went home. While I was putting my guns up I noticed my flash suppressor...
  4. Ruger Semi-Auto
    I installed the new Hannibal rail, and it's great. However, there's not nearly as much ventilation as the stock Handguard. When I removed the stock after shooting at the Range, there was significantly more carbon build up along the inside of the stock near the piston. Should I: 1) drill some...
  5. Ruger Semi-Auto
    I was finally able to take out my Mini 14 with my new scope I got for it. I have it mounted on the pic rail that was included with the rifle, over the action. It didn't have any trouble ejecting spent brass but I noticed that it was leaving marks on the mount and on the windage cover. Wanted...
  6. Ruger Semi-Auto
    Hey Ruger people - I recently purchased an excellent, used 5847 mini 14. It says "Ranch Rifle" on the receiver but has a threaded barrel and a (very effective) flash hider. I want to be able to take this gun to California, just up the mountain, as I'd like. Got my 5 round mags already; but I...
  7. Ruger Semi-Auto
    I currently have a Mini-14 on layway and I am buying a few thins here and there to prep for it (ammo, mags, cleaning and maintenance supplies) and I was curious what kind of sling would be best for it. It's a tactical Mini-14 Model #5888 with the folding stock. I don't have a lot of knowledge on...
  8. Ruger Semi-Auto
    So I finally found the Mini 14 of my dreams and out that sucker on layaway. I've heard here and there that the 14s can be real finicky with taking non Ruger branded magazines. Just curious how true that was and which magazines are better than others.
  9. Ruger Semi-Auto
    I have a Mini 14 5831 tactical, i think it is referred to as the tactical scout. Anyway, it is the model with the factory picatinny forearm rail that the factory gas block lower, screws to. When I received the rifle, the fitment between the rail and the gas block lower was poorly aligned and was...
  10. What's My Firearm Worth
    Hello, I have a Mini-14GB. Marked with LE. Has an 18" barrel, bayonet lug, flash-hider, sling swivels and it was made in 1982. I also have two of the Ruger 20-round magazines in the white box. The gun's in pretty nice condition, bluing about 95% and a few marks on the stock. I'm interested...

    Want to buy the TRIGGER ASSEMBLY for a Mini-14:, preferrably a newer one or at least compatible for a new 583(?) series. I just got an ProMag Archangel Precision Stock for my new Mini-14 and apparently the trigger housing needs to be modified. I do not wish to do this to my new OEM parts...
  12. Ruger Semi-Auto
    What parts would I require to convert a Mini 30 to fire 5.56 mm? My problem is that I can buy a Mini 30, but can not find a Mini 14 for sale. Thanks William M!
  13. Ruger Semi-Auto
    I don't know if this is normal, but my Ruger Mini-14 Tactical Model 5889 acts very strangely when loading magazines with the bolt closed/forward. When I load in any magazine, if there is a cartridge on the right side of the magazine's feed lips, it will not push into the rifle. However, if I put...
  14. Ruger Semi-Auto
    I know the manual shows how it's supposed to look like, but on my ruger the sight looks different than shown on the manual. I have a brand new series 580 Mini 14 Tactical. I was wondering if it wasn't too much of a bother if someone could take a picture of their sight picture and show me what it...
  15. Ruger Semi-Auto
    I recently bough a Ruger model 5889 Mini-14 and I was wondering if any websites sell OEM or OEM quality barrels for it. I want some insurance if I ever shoot out the original barrel. I don't want those old pre 580 barrels where it'll be inaccurate. I've already searched on google for the first...

    New, never used complete trigger assembly for a Ruger Mini-14 Stainless Ranch Rifle. The Ruger service department was working on a Mini of mine and they decided to replace it with a brand new rifle. I already had a trigger assembly so I am selling the one that came on the new rifle. Will ship to...

    Hey all, I just traded for this Mini 14 that's supposed to be a factory side folder. I'm not 100% convinced its legit yet, but it was still a good trade regardless. Anyway, from what little I know about these, it seems to have most of the correct features, the sling attachment on the side...

    Recently got Mini 14 584 ranch 5.56 Nato series. 3MOA red dot. My loads, normally 22.0 gr H322, new LC brass, Hornady HP-BT 62 gr, Lee factory Crimp. Really like the Mini 14, kind of like my M1 Garand, but light weight... Only have about 300 rounds thru it at this point. Not broke in yet...
  19. Ruger Semi-Auto
    Hello, I just got a factory new Mini-14 and decided to try out disassembly and reassembly to practice for when I'll have to first clean it. I found an issue when trying to reassemble the rifle: I placed in the barrel and trigger assembly into the rifle, and followed as the manual and videos...
