It should be obvious to a lot of people who come to gunco that I like the Mini-14. But, I have read of too many failures of Mini-14 firing pins to not be concerned. Ruger is not very interested in providing spare firing pins, so, a person has to do something else. Midway currently has Glend after-market firing pins for the Mini-14. I plan to order two of them. There are also anumber of other Mini parts availabale at Midway. I particularly want to obtain some of the springs that are used on this weapon, because, they, too, could break. But, I'll start with the firing pins.
