    I am looking for a Mini-14 gas block, from a Ruger Mini-14 factory folder. This gas block has the sling swivel on the left side.

    I would prefer the blued version, but Stainless is also acceptable.

    Please PM me with your price.

    Thank you,

    Bill

    HG;
    Evidentially they are very hard to find.

    However, please keep your eyes open for me, will you?

    I also have been looking for a folding stock gas block, but in stainless---been looking for years---must be really scarce! Good luck!

    Those gas blocks are from the AC556. That's why they are so rare.

    They quit making the folding style minis with the side mount sling swivel years ago. Has anyone checked with Ruger for this part?

    This style of gas block was used on the folding stock AC556---but was also used on the semi-auto GB (govt, barrel) model as well as many blued and stainless regular folder rifles up until, I believe, 1994. It would be nice if Ruger offered this style of rifle now.
