I have a good one. I bought my mini 14 around 1990 new.
I recently had the barrel threaded and the gunsmith said the barrel was bent. I mailed it to ruger and they said the barrel wasnt bent. Well I just tried to put a scope on it and ran out of adjustment to the right and could never line it up. appears the barrel seats in the receiver at an angle.
Thinks ruger its true you are machinists not gunsmiths your own man inspecting my rifle couldnt tell what was wrong.
Ruger would not fix it, and you can visually tell the scope does not line up with the barrel. Dont buy a Ruger rifle if you want quality.
Reason of review: Damaged or defective.
Monetary Loss: $650.
Preferred solution: Replace rifle.
I liked: Customer employees answering the phone.
I didn't like: Unconcerced and apparantly non-skilled rifle examiner.
