I purchased a used scoped Mini 14 today and after getting home and removing the scope rail noticed parts missing for the rear sight, can someone tell me what all I am missing maybe part numbers or where to purchase to put back to complete.
Thanks you in advance for the replies. I have tried to load pictures I have taken to show what I am talking about but can't get them to load, I can be reached at [email protected] for pictures.

Someone correct me if I am wrong on this........ It might help a bit to add what year the rifle was made (do a serial number search) and which variant it is (i.e. Ranch with a wood stock or all weather, ATI, Tactical, etc.). That way you might get some helpful advice even without the photos. :idea:

There is a photo layout of some of them just a little ways down this page. See if yours is shown.

Ruger instruction manuals have a list of parts and diagrams near the end of each book.

If I read this correctly, you have a "Mini 14 Ranch Rifle" built in 1999. I'm still guessing here but I think yours is covered by this manual. Look at page nine, it shows the rear sights. The parts list is in the back of the book....... :idea:

Thanks to all for the help and response, I will keep my eyes open for when they restock the Tech sights.
