I went to buy a mini 14 last month but once I looked at it, I was really surprised. It looked cheesy. All the parts looked like they were cast and then assembled with no machining, or finish. Even the bolt was just a dull cast aluminum color. It looked like a toy gun. You would expect more for over $700.00. Most guns have such unbelievable fit and finish, this was the opposite of what I expected. Needless to say, I didn't buy it.

They are cast. The design of that reciever and rotating bolt and lockup is basically a copy of an M1 or Garand or M14, those would have been forged, but now they(like this Springfield Armory) are typically MIM parts(sometimes forged bolts) and Sturm Ruger has one of the best foundries, Pine Tree Casting...up in your vicinity.

It appears, compared to say a precise AR-15...as a sloppy loose fitting battle rifle but it works extremely well packed with grime and can shake off a ton of mud. Probably rattles when you shake it but when it locks with a cartridge up it's brilliant. Don't have a Ruger, but have a couple of the others and they flat out work. Simple to take down and lather with axle grease, but the lockup is as precise as any other even tho they rattle, have wide gaps, and the bolt moves when nothing is chambered. Like an appreciation for antique farm equipment I guess, Garand was a sharp one and the beauty is in the simplicity.

Pull the trigger guard open and yank the trigger assembly out the bottom of the stock and the whole thing comes out of the stock NO TOOLS in about 10 seconds.

I can't argue about the reliability, I haven't heard anything negative about the Ruger either. I was just surprised about the way it looked. I have a WWII Springfield M1 Garand and it looks and feels like quality. I may still pick up a Mini 14, because I really want one and they're a blast to shoot, but I'm going to check out the different options first. I've had other Rugers and they didn't look like the Mini 14.

This is my Garand. Shit, it's even got a walnut stock, and it's a mass produced 65+ year old military rifle.

Then you already that Oh well...nothing is what it used to be...I am always picking up the ranch rifles myself, but waiting for that 400 dollar used deal when someone has to make the rent!

Would make me a good truck gun.

Beautiful rifle your Garand, mine is service grade at best(like everything else) but still runs like a top. Nice wood! Love the green tint to the parkerize. Jealousy!

I'm collecting rifles from every major country in WWII. In addition to my Garand, I have a few WWII rifles all with military markings and with the proper slings and bayonets, including a British Enfield, a Russian Nagant, and a Japanese Arisaka with the mum still intact. I still need to pick up a German Mauser, a French MAS, and a Carcano from Italy.

This is my Nagant.

.

Yup, the parkerizing is still really nice and I shoot the gun too. The Nagant is a well made tough little gun, the Enfield is great quality, and the Arisaka is a total piece of shit, but a nice example of one.

Actually, I shoot them all but the Garand is by far the most fun, followed by the Nagant.

Nagant goes:
BOOM
How much was it, the only one I had cost about $87.00

You'll get a kick out of this comparison. http://7.62x54r.net/MosinID/MosinHumor.htm
