ruger mini-14

  1. Military Weapons Forum
    Any thoughts, advice, personal experience on the Mini14 tactical? Had one and like an idiot, went back to an AR. Only issue seems to be magazine costs. Are there after market mags that work? Not interested in an AK. :o)

    Was thinking about adding one to the safe, was just wanting to see if there are any OWNERS out there with some valuable input, please none of the he-said she-said bullcrap.. Would it reach out and touch something 300-400 yards out there?? Id like to keep it .223 for ammo stockpiling reasons (...

    I found a rail system for the barrel of my Ruger Mini-14 which has two rails, one on each side of the barrel and thought others might be interested.... I have had some trouble finding good rail stuff for the Mini-14

    although the ar platform isn't scaring the sheeple as much as it used to the mini-14 seems to freak folks out a bit less how reliable are they these days?

    This article is presented as my "opinion" and should not be considered as scientific fact. I know this topic has been covered a bunch of times, I figure 1 more thread aint gonna hunt. Is the AR-15 a good survival rifle? The simple answer is, “it depends.” The M16 223/5.56mm was original...

    Does the Mini deserve to be in the Assault/Military section for posts? It does have a military type Garand action.... But it is not a military or assault weapon that has seen action to any real extent...

    There is a local gun store here in CT that usually sells them for $49.99 iirc. They are on sale for $29, so I grabbed a half dozen. I have been noticing that the 30-rnd mags are hard to come by. Is there, perchance, another source at an even better price?

    If one of your best friends wanted to give you a gift and asked if you wanted a M1 Carbine or a Mini-14 (let's just say both are in mint condition) which one would you choose and why? :rain

    I'm looking for a rifle for my wife which would be an easier fit for her to shoot?

    I'm sure some of you may have experienced the pencil thin barrels and crappy sights that came with the old Minis. If that is still your impression of these guns it is time to take another look! I don't think there has been enough emphasis here on SB about the newer Minis and the improvements...

    I will be picking one up soon and I sold my old ranch rifle to buy this one. I will put a Leopold tactical 3X9 on it. Any comments on what size (weight) bullet? Also, does the front harmonic tube need any adjusting? Thanks for all info.. Happy new year and keep your powder dry!

    Anyone have any opinions on this? I REALLY wanted an AR15, but I'm concerned about the reliability and ruggedness of the AR, plus it doesn't look as evil as the AR or AK. I have a few guns as it is, but nothing I would carry as my primary defense. I have: -XD subcompact 9mm as my carry peice...

    Several low priced ways to make your mini more accurate. Make a home made barrel strut. I have an older model with the skinny barrel. The range I shoot at only has an 80 yard range, so all testing was done at 80 yards. Putting the home made strut cut my groups for 4" to less than 1.5". To make...

    Ruger is selling Mini-14 20 round magazines until January 31st, 2009 as part of a special promotion. They are $29.95 apiece. If I'm not mistaken, Ruger hasn't sold these magazines to regular civilians for years. If you want something better than a 5 round magazine for your Mini, now is the time...

    Hey guys, I am new to the ranks. What is your take on relying on a mini-14 for a main gun in a SHTF situation? I appreciate any words of wisdom you can offer. Z

    Having grown up on the A-team while it was prime time I have always been enamored with the Mini-14. With all the varients (makers) of the AR-15 style and some of the issues I've heard about, I was wondering..... Given the choice, which wepon would you choose? AR-15 or Mini-14 Why? If AR-15...

    For those who have shot/owned them before what are the limitations? If I'm looking at used ones what should I look out for? Thoughts/opinions appreciated...
