Found a Mini-14 GB, these are agency trade-ins, not sure which agency had these...Mine has wear to finish but the bore is nice... usual bumps and scars on the stock.

FYI, the GB stands for Government Bayonet

Nice! Where did you find it and how much? Are more available? I'm 20 minuets from Connecticut.

I wonder if the GB models were any more accurate than the civilian models were. I would certainly hope so.

Nice score :) . A mini 14 has been at the top of my gotta have list since I was a kid, unfortunately I still haven't acquired one as of yet, but it has given me plenty of time to study up on them. I would be happy with a 1st gen to early 80's mini ranch. Anything after that up until Ruger completely retooled the mini 14 line you couldn't hit the broadside of a barn if you were standing inside it with one .

Unfortunately the few that I have found that were early enough models for me to be interested in were far too expensive. I found a few others but they fell within the years that they had accuracy issues so I had no interest in them. Now that Ruger has retooled them not only are they far too expensive but I'm not too interested in having one with a bull barrel and a tupperware stock, so I guess I'll keep an eye out for an early mini Ranch. I'm bound to run across one sooner or later

congrats on your new Mini 14 GB! I have always liked the Mini 14. I used to be as rabididly anti AR 15 as Cyrano. so the Mini 14 was my boat gun. my blued one has been with me all over the Caribbean. I never knew the Mini 14 was "inaccurate" until I joined this forum. all mine have accounted for many deer,hogs, squirrels and turkeys usually one shot kills. I currently own 3 Minis, one early 80's, one mid 80's and one I bought 2 - 3 years ago in 300 Black Out.
I have always wanted a GB model. (also a AC 556 full auto)

Received my stabilizer will see how it helps... I have had a few Mini-14s/30s over the years and some were great shooters and some were not. This one shoots well but I think it can do better...

Blaster, a mini 14 was also one of my "boat" guns. it's now in a full length Hogue stock but I think I'm going to put it back in the original factory folding stock that was used in boat duty.
