I went to the parents farm over the weekend and it was windy. The barn doors were open on both sides and it’s a wind tunnel. With the 20mph constant wind it worked up a lot to dust, dust in your eyes dust. The mini sat in there for 4 hours with the wind constantly putting dust on it.

After 4 hours, without even a thought of the internet facts and how they are supposed to be real world fact, i shot it, then shot it a bunch more. I’ll be damned if I learned something Saturday. I learned my mini 14 is completely and totally illiterate. If only it could read about how it will jam and break before even a single round is fired.

I already knew the mini was illiterate, so I knew it would be fine. I was even more impressed that the R51 that got equally dusty didn’t jam or even hiccup once in the dusty conditions through 200 rounds of various ammo types. Such an easy carrying, light recoiling small pistol that shoot like it’s a full size pistol. The thing is extremely accurate. The mini was it’s normal boring reliable self, nothing new there.

Say it ain't so DB! Are you sayin that them Xsquirts are mistaken? Impossible.

However....your not done yet.

Next up= drizzle simulation. Your gonna need your old lady's sprinkler from her garden. Dont clean it. That dust will turn to mud, melt the barrel, crack the stock, and turn your op rod into sushi.
It's gonna happen because someone who seen a picture of a Mini14 once upon a time has decreed this to be it's fate.

Good luck and for Christ sake......teach that rifle how to read.

You probably already know this, but you can get buttstock pads with a side clip to attach your sling the way you want it...

Or run a screw in and do whatever you want.
It ain't that hard.
If you mess it up, get out the Bondo and try again.
You own it now, not Ruger.
