Precision on the range, at the ranch, on patrol, or in the woods. 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 from the standard Ranch Rifle, to the extremely accurate Mini-14 Target Rifle, to the Tactical models with ATI folding stock or compact barrel with flash suppressor – 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.
