    Will having holes drilled in my Mini 14 void the warranty?

    I have an older Mini 14, so having a scope mount and scope would require having holes drilled in it to. Well, mine does, and I was curious if that voids the warranty. Anyone know?

    Ruger specifically offers no warranty, written or implied... period. You can thank some ambulance-chasing lawyers for that.

    However - in the real world, Ruger has good customer service and if, for example, you had a new Mini 14 that had a broken trigger, I'm sure they would make it right for you. But if that same gun's receiver cracked right near the holes you drilled for your scope mount, I think you'd be barking up the wrong tree.

    But you said you have an "older" Ruger, so hypotheticals aside, it is not covered by a warranty. I would just have a competent gunsmith do the job.

    There are "NO DRILL" scope mounts available for the Mini 14. Just FYI.
    Do a Google search by images and you'll see more than a few of them.

    Search Ebay for "Mini 14 Scope" there is always a very decent UTG Mini 14 "no drill" mount & tac mount listed.

    I bought a Ruger Mini 14 right after 9/11. Went and it would hang up after almost every shot. I contacted Ruger and sent it back they reworked it from top to bottom. Changed springs and made adjustments. Sent it back at no charge. I've been a Ruger fan ever since...
    For a man interested only in passin' through, he suddenly found himself entangled in a deadly struggle….

    You can also get a scout scope mount that mounts to the top of the gas block. You then would need a long eye relief scope such as the one made by Leupold. I have one on a custom 308 mauser and I love it. I put this set up on my mini 14 but with a red dot and works great.
