    Does anyone know when or at what serial # Ruger K-Mini14/5P's started experiencing quality issues? I purchased one last summer and while trying to unlatch the trigger guard to take apart for initial cleaning, it would not pull away as it is supposed to. Please note I still own the same model from 2008 which is serial # range 581 and it gives me no problem. This new one also had a gouge at 6 O'clock where the 45 degree angle is that the cartridge's front end stops.
    Also, the Ruger manual states that it is safe to use military 5.56(.223 is stated on receiver). If so, what percentage of press over .223 commercial U.S. ammo would it be?

    Thanks for any insight.
