1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    What year was it made? Does it have the tapered or straight barrel?

    Here you go... By the way, what is the significance of the first three numbers before the hyphen? Just curious... Art G.

    Well it has to do with the series of the gun. Kinda of like an indicator of when they made upgrades.

    Unfortunately, the Mini-14 has four different ones and they don't all make sense. There are 180, 181, 187, 197, 580 and 581. The 580 and 581 are the newest ones. It used to be that the 580 was for the Mini-14 and the 581 was for the Mini-30, but the newest Mini-14s also have 581.

    Anyway, it's just one way to have a ballpark idea of when it was made and what version it is.

    I love these guns. With the new tapered barrel they are every bit as accurate as the AR-15.
