I have a chance to swap a mini-14 for a Garand, no brainer right! Except the Grand has had the bayonet lug removed, the stock shortened(recoil pad installed), and has added a Pachmayer tip off scope mount. It looks like it has turned into a hunting rifle. Can these things be reversed, and how much money? Please any info I can get is much appreciated.

Well sounds like you could use a gas cylinder $130-$200, and a new stock. That price I got from Fulton armory. Not sure about the scope mount. Hows it attached?

It is drilled and taped into the side of the receiver.

Keep the Mini.

LOLOLOL!

Ever heard of an M1-C?  It could be worth $5k.  Of course, if it was a Bubba drill and tap job, it would devalue the rifle further.

Scope mount does not look any of the pictures of M1-Cs

No brainer is right. Keep the mini, pass on the Bubba'd M1. BTW, Ruger is selling factory Mini 14 20 round Mags on their web sight for $29.00 ea. A buddy of mine just received 4 of them. Back ordered but the wait is only about 3-4 weeks.


Edit,

Easy way to tell if an M1 receiver may be an M1C; The M1C has five holes drilled in the side of the receiver, 3 are tapped, two are not.

Sell the Mini-14 and put the money towards a CMP Service Grade Garand.

That is exactly what I was thinking!
