For decades, Ruger Mini-14 Tactical rifles have been the choice for 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. This Mini-14 is chambered in 300 AAC Blackout and has a 20+1 capacity. It has integral sling swivels and a simple, rugged Garand style breechbolt locking system with a fixed piston gas system and self cleaning, moving gas cylinder. It features an improved receiver with rounded contours, protected blade front sight and adjustable ghost ring aperture rear sight. It has a compact, hammer forged 16.12 barrel with flash suppressor.
