I got it two weeks ago, and with the aperture all the way right, it still hit 2 1/2" or so to the left at 30 yards. Ruger sent me a UPS label and I shipped it off today. Hopefully it won't take long to get back to me, because, other than the POI issue, I love the gun.

Anyone have any idea on what Ruger's turnaround times are like? I know it depends a lot on the problem, but are they usually pretty considerate and speedy?

They have always been pretty quick with turn around time with me. I had them re-blue an Old Model 357 Blackhawk, and I think it took them about 3 or 4 weeks. Of course they put the conversion parts in it, which proptly got re-converted when I got her back! I also sent a Security Six to them once, for something I screwed up, and they fixed it promptly, but it was so long ago I cant remember how long it took.

Hey bestseller92, don't knock me down for asking this question, but I just throwing this out there. Have you had someone else fire a string of rounds? It sounds stupid of me to ask, but by the way the manuals talk about sending in a firearm to have it checked out and if it is found to be in proper working and shooting order that the owner would have to pay for the time of inspection. I'm sorry but had to ask.

I wanted a mini-14, but everyone told me they were a headache and go with an AR-15. I picked one up pretty reasonable and am very happy with it. I like the idea of pulling the two pins and swapping out to a .22lr upper or even a 6.5 or .50 if I wanted. Still like the mini-14s though for some reason.

I've owned and shot many mini-14/30s and stoner type rifles, and I have to say the Ruger Mini-14/30 is much more reliable. If you like to dress up and customize your rifles, then go with an AR15.

Your question is fine; don't worry about it. My brother in law, who's a better rifle shot than me (I'm a better handgun shot than he is) helped me wring it out, and it shot to the left for him, too. I'll be VERY disappointed if Ruger tries to tell me there's nothing wrong with the gun, since I know personally that there is. My suspicions are that 1 - the front sight needs to be unpinned and moved a bit to the left and; 2 - Ruger will take care of it post haste.
