Hey folks! Not sure if this should wind up on this thread, or the Classifieds thread, so I will start here but please correct me if I made a mistake.
I have a Ruger Mini-14 Ranch Rifle that I really love. It is a solid gun, something small and light enough that it perfectly fits the role of a "truck gun" (or in my case, a Subaru Baja!), yet has enough in it to mean business. Also, for someone who is not really turned on by the entire tactical AR look, the simple wooden stock and classic rifle look really keep me content - but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate some really tricked out rigs!
Anyone else have a Mini-14? Have you done any modifications or improvements to it?
I want to use stripper clips with my rifle in the same fashion as the M14 or M1A - not just to load the magazine while it is removed from the rifle, but to load rounds on stripper clips directly into the rifle. The problem is that the Mini-14 does not have a clip guide attached to the receiver like its older siblings. Does anyone know someone who has made one, or can fabricate one up?
Thank you in advance, and happy shooting!
