Ruger Mini 30 Tactical Question?

Has anyone here found a scout style rail system for the heavy barreled Ruger Mini 30 tactical? I would like to mount an EoTech on my Mini 30 tactical.

The tactical (I do not like "tactical" but that is what Ruger calls it) has a heavier barrel and I suspect that the forward mounts will not fit. Does anyone here have personal experience???

Thanks in advance.

Nope, Ultimak does not carry one for the thicker barrel. Anyone else???

EoTech is going to be WAY high as it's designed to work with the AR's sight line.

For a Mini, I'd get a Picatinny rail that uses the existing scope mounts and pop a Aimpoint Micro on that. Your sight line will be much, much lower than you'll get with a EoTech (you'll actually be able to get a cheek weld, not a jaw weld) with the stock.

I have an Archangel Sparta stock on my .223 Mini-14 Tactical. With this stock you can mount an EoTech on the Mini and it will co-witness with any same plane AR-15 style sights. The Sparta stock sells for around $180, so it is more expensive than other options, but few other options do such a good job of mounting an EoTech on a Mini-14.

"Perfectunion.com" might also have some ideas.

I believe Amega has a mini scout III rail that should work.

I am in the same boat. My Mini 30 Tactical is on the way and I want to put an EoTech on a scout rail. I heard good things about Ultimak but they don't make one for the Tactical model. Please let me know if you find what you're (we're) looking for. Thanks.

I have. Amega claims to have rails that fits all new Mini 30s, but they don't specifically say "Tactical". It doesn't seem like any rail can fit different barrel sizes so I am a little skeptical. I will probably give it a try, but I am hoping that somebody has already found one that works for sure.

All of the 580 and 581 series Mini's have the same barrel OD. The bore size is all that is different. Any rail made for the tapered barrel should work. Think about this from Ruger's manufacturing end, it's cheaper to forge one size barrel and use the correct mandrel as needed for the 14's and the 30's.

Over at Perfect Union you will find references to Ameritek and Accuracy Systems accessories.

Why use a scout rail when you can use the full-back receiver rail?, such as
http://www.gunaccessories.com/AmeritekMounts/ruger.asp
(Answer may be, you want a wide field-of-view CQB sight)
I do not know if you can get the Ameritek rails in black finish to match the Mini-30 GBCPC (Tactical). Ask and (maybe) you shall receive....

You may also find what you're looking for somewhere in here:
