Mini-14

If I recall, you will have to send your Mini-14 back to Ruger. They have to hand fit bolts and extractors.
Best bet is to give them a call

Go to the Ruger website, the customer service tab. It has all the info you're looking for. Had a problem with my Mini-14 last year, they took care of me.

Its my understanding that Ruger officially stopped supporting the 180 series. They will probably refuse to sell you the parts too. I hope I am wrong, but I'm pretty sure a broken 180 is a club.

Ask to see if they will give you a new rifle and send this one in for exchange.

Check out numrich gun parts. They should have the parts you are looking for. I would take the rifle to a smith, and see what he will charge for the repairs. He may even have the parts kicking around in his shop. Best of luck.

Just got an e-mail from ruger. Sounds like they can fix it. Apparently they don't sell some of the parts to gunsmiths.

No No No-
You dont want a new vs your 180 series :eek:

On another forum I have heard of cs offering credit towards another mini or rifle, I would keep all options on the table!:D
