Ruger Mini 14 .223 Collapsable/Folding Stock 
by Benjamin M
Date Added: Wednesday 19 December, 2012
I have yet to take her to a range. I gave it a good once over and everything seemed in place. The adjustable stock is a VERY nice touch if you're tall and burly, it's actually got 5 positions, not standard 4. The folding feature is good for a backpacking weapon (if you odn't mind the weight), and there are swivel stud options out the wazoo. Seriously, about every other surface seems to have somewhere to mount a sling or securing strap.
The rocking magazine takes a little getting used to, but it loads .223 as easily as an AR mag does. Same deal, just push down and they click right in.
The sights...oh the sights. The ATI model's top rail SERIOUSLY limits your peripheral vision when looking down the sights. I suggest colorizing that front blade also, for contrast.
The grip feels great, with one caveat: The polymer that your thumb webbing hits was a little sharp on mine, so it scratched my shooting hand up good. Will have to file that down a bit. Trigger pull is crisp, feels about 4-5 pounds, pretty standard.
The safety is excellent too! M1 style, located on the left side of the trigger guard, easy access and positive retention.
When you work that bolt, though, REALLY gotta man handle it. Same with getting a mag out. Smack that release and let it fall (or rock it out the way it came if you're not into dropping mags).
Overall, the craftsmanship on the rifle and the stock appear to be excellent, and sturdy. Sure, it's ugly as hell. But it seems to be a squared away firearm.
I will post a follow up after some range time with her.
