    at least taurus will let you have some of their parts--LOL

    a long time ago numrich had a shit load of mini take off stuff dirt cheap too.

    like 6.8spc barrels, 7.62x39 barrels --

    at the time i thought i would buy one of their 7.62x39s--but they turned out to have the wrong bore diameter for 7.62x39 --and the 6.8s had the wrong twist rate and chamber--

    i don't know what the deal was with their 223 barrels --but they had a bunch of them for $39 each, seems like they were 1-11" TR

    many of the mini-14 take off ruger parts i run across are well "sub-optimal" to say the least.

    haven't seem much in parts for the minis in a long time.

    LOL got that right, I replaced some of the parts in my 10/22 and Mark II pistol a couple years ago, I wanted to replace all the springs on both and the extractor on the pistol since I put a shit load of rounds them both. I couldn't find anyone that had the extractor so I sent an email to Ruger, they wouldn't sell me one and wanted me to send the pistol back to them. F that, I found an extractor a few months later.


    Oh, and I do have a Mini14, decent gun but it doesn't excite me to much so it sits most of the time

    ruger violates my "no parts no buy" policy, not to mention them jumping in bed with the socialist gun grabbing clintons back in the AWB days.

    the only guns they got i like are their wheel guns , their 1911 and their overpriced ar-15 rip-off/clone.

    their wheel guns have been around so long at least some of the parts are there, and their tough as a block of pig iron, and their AR and 1911s being close to everybodys standard --plenty of parts for them.

    i have come pretty close to buying a ruger SR 1911 which is probably the best buy in an american made 1911. but the trigger on the one i shot still sucked--but nothing a nice sear and spring couldn't fix.

    my guess if you tuned up the trigger then sent it back to ruger they would toss your fitted parts in the trash and put their stamped out MIM shit back on--LOL

    to me a ruger warranty is just about about squat

    ??? The MKII extractor is the exact same one found in the 10/22, they are everywhere! The Volquartson exact edge extractor is a good upgrade.

    Didn't know they were the same, and at the time I couldn't find anyone that had them in stock, about three or four months later everyone had them again.

    So I get the Mini from Ruger last week. Like they said, a new production stainless synthetic. First thing I did was take it apart and give it a once over. Lo and behold, it had a burr on the muzzle. More like a half ring of metal protruding from the bore on one side. it only stuck out a few thousanths, but you could catch your fingernail on it. Seriously? They cant even crown a muzzle correctly? Luckily I had purchased an 11 deg target muzzle crown cutter some time ago. It made short work of the nasty muzzle. I took it to the range and sighted it in at 50 yds open sights (as far as these tired eyes can see good without optics these days) and the groups were impressive. I didnt measure but I would say somewhere in the half inch range. So I guess its a win. $380 for a new Mini. And they sent me my aftermarket stock and flash suppressor back as well.
