View Full Version : Mini 14 Receiver

04-26-2010, 6:27 PM
Sup guys,

I got a buddy who is interested in purchasing a Mini-14 and installing a new stock on it.

He asked me if it's possible to just purchase the Mini-14 receiver, or does he need to purchase the complete rifle?

Any input on this?

I figure it would be easier just to buy the rifle and then replace the stock on it, but not sure.

He should just buy the gun and replace the stock. If he wants to recoup some money, he could probably sell the original stock.

I dont think ruger selss the receivers separately.I know just a few years ago it was very hard to buy certain ruger parts only option was thru ruger and had to send gun in.

The Ruger factory stock isn't very expensive, I'd say buy the gun complete and remove the steel brackets and sell it off, switch out to the new stock. I bought one from Andean, cost only $125.00.

Just FYI, make sure he doesn't buy anything with a PG or thumbhole in it.
