For decades, Ruger Mini-14 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. 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. The simple, rugged Garand-style action with breachbolt locking system, a fixed-position gas system, and a self-cleaning moving gas cylinder provide unparalleled reliability under harsh operating conditions. This rifle features a an aftermarket muzzle brake and a 2-position safety. Its wood and metal are in fair condition and its bore is in good condition.
