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 2-position safety and Ruger scope-mounting rings. It includes the original factory cardboard box. Its stock and bore are in excellent condition. Its metal is in very good condition.
