Neighbor three houses away bought a Mini 14 from a pawn shop for $750.00 (nuts) We tried it today with 6 types of ammo, three different scopes, and 8 to 10 inch groups (patterns) at 100 yards. Got any suggestions other than using it for a tent stake. I checked and rechecked every screw, and anything else I cpould think of over a freezing two hour period. I suggested he return it to the pawn shop (good luck with that) or send it to Ruger. He is not happy.
