Hello everyone, I just recently purchased a standard ruger mini 14. It has a serial number beginning with 186 and after talking with a ruger representative, determined that the rifle was made in 1993. I hear great things about these Accustruts and would like to put one on my mini. My question is, can an accustrut fit into this mini 14 that I have? Also, what model? I was on the accustrut website and I see exceptions as to what rifles can properly use the accustrut, but it can be a bit confusing. My final questions is, what side mounts would you recommend if I wanted to put a scope or red dot sight onto the rifle? Remember, my rifle is not a ranch version and so the only two possible ways to mount any sight would be to have the receiver professionally drilled and tapped (too expensive) OR to use the side mount. Thank you in advance!
