How well does that scope setup work? Is the eye relief length about right? What magnification is the scope? Sharp looking rig.

It actually works surprisingly well. I bought the Simmons scope because I wasn't sure how I'd like the scout setup. Being a handgun scope, the eye relief isn't all that critical and it's LONG -- like 14" of ER. But the Ranch Products mount requires it because it's way out there. Overall I'm happy with it, but I'm thinking about going to a better scope at some point. The 2-6x works just fine for coyotes out here.

Did I mention that this mount also allows the use of irons with a scope mounted? That's probably my favorite feature.

I think I've already posted in this thread, but I mounted a new Redfield 2-7 on my Mini 14 and took a quick snap of it this evening. I think this might be my best firearm show-and-tell photo yet...

Enjoy!



Ruger Mini 14 Tactical
Hogue Stock
Redfield 2-7x34

Camera Setup (for anyone interested):
Canon 5D Mark II
Canon 40mm f/2.8 STM
Canon 430 EXII Speedlight

I hung the rifle using some heavy-duty picture hanging wire from some brackets on the wall. Snapped the photo and used Photoshop to remove the wires and add in the subtle background (was just a bright white wall).

Here's mine. A 186 Series Mini 14 GB\20 SS That just slipped past the Clinton AWB in 1994. Here in NY, that ban is still in full effect, so it would have sold at a shop as a pre-ban. ( And yes, I checked with Ruger to confirm that it is legal here in NY, the fine folks there sent me a letter to comfirm it.) I bought it from a friend that had fallen on some tough times. His wife had died 6 months earlier, he lost his job 3 months later, an social services refused to help him. He needed the money for rent, food for him and his 3 kids, and needed gas for a job interview the next week. Yes, he did get the job, he now works for the NYS DOT. I told him then, that if he ever wants it back, I will sell it back for what I paid him, any extras I would just give him. All he asked for is the occaisional visitation at the range.

It's old, a little beat up, and it works flawlessly. Since buying it, I have only added 2 10 round, and 1 5 round magazine, a sight tool, and a repack kit with stripper clips. I have continued the tradition he started of using it as a truck gun. It is my favorite plinker and coyote buster. It's nowhere near as pretty as most of the ones in the gallery, but every scratch and ding tell a story.

Still need to find a good RedDot for it.
