For decades, Ruger® Mini-14® rifles and Mini Thirty® rifles have been the choice for applications ranging from the farm and ranch, to the deep woods, to personal defense. Their short barrels and overall short length make them favorites in any application where maneuverability and ease of handling are priorities. With a variety of configurations, there is a Mini-14 or Mini Thirty to meet any demand. Specifically designed for mounting today's scopes or other optical sighting systems, these rifles include a side ejection to clear the top mounted scope, and a patented recoil buffer which protects the scope from damage or shifting the point of impact as the semi-automatic action cycles. This standard Ranch Rifle is best for small to medium-sized game hunting when maneuverability and a few quick shots might be needed. It features a hardwood stock, blade front and adjustable rear sights, 18.5” barrel with a blued finish, shoots .223 Rem. and has a 5-round capacity.
