Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
We are pleased to present another early model Ruger Mini-14 for your consideration. Serial #181-15721 was manufactured between 1978-1979. The serial number falls somewhere in the middle of these two years. Ruger Mini-14s are duty-ready semi-automatic rifles and are known for their simplicity and durability. Chambered in 223/5.56 they are designed to work with 223 and 5.56 ammunition.

Although this one is over 40 years old it is in good condition. The stock shows minimal handling use and comes with a B Safe scope mount. (Please see the pictures).

VARIOUS MODELS
Beginning with serial number 181-07488 in 1978 and moving until number 197-12180 in 2004, the classic era of the Ruger mini-14 produced over a million standard rifles. This included the Ranch rifle series, which was introduced in 1982. Sporting options like a scope mount, folding rear sight, improved ejector, and optional black synthetic stock, the rifle was a success commercially. In 2004, Ruger closed the doors for two years on these classic rifles and introduced another redesign.
In 2005, a further improved Mini-14 saw light. With reworked tooling, Ruger tweaked the legacy design with a number of slight changes including gentle contours to stock and receiver, changed out the rear sights, and most importantly gave the short barrel a 1 in 9-inch twist for more modern ammunition. These new rifles begin their serial number range with 580-00001.
