This is a receiver mounted stripper clip guide for Mini 14’s with serial numbers 582 and up. We made sure the factory sights are still usable when installed, although your lower field of view will be interrupted. Because of the location of the ejector, we designed the clip guide so that clips need to be inserted and stripped at an angle. Stripper clips are inherently difficult to load. Because of that, you should practice to get as fast as shown in the videos. We recommend downloading the clips to nine rounds for practice and wearing gloves.
We designed these parts to work best with Ruger brand magazines. Other magazine brands seem to work, but there may be some that don’t. We cannot feasibly verify every aftermarket magazine.
For Ranch Rifles with serial number prefix lower than 582 return to the shop section for stripper clip guides.
These parts were intended to use the screws supplied with the rifle for mounting the scope mount rail to attach this to your rifle. It’s recommended to use medium strength thread-locking compound to prevent the screws from backing out from recoil vibrations.
If you’re missing your screws, you can contact Ruger for replacements or select the add on screws option before checkout.
ZRUS outdoors gives a demonstration as well.
