Ruger's Auction To Benefit Honored American Veterans Afield
This week, Ruger is auctioning a rare and extremely desirable: ".222 Rem. caliber stainless Mini-14® Ranch rifle with serial number 188-54599. The rollmark date of this rifle is May 19, 1992. It appears this rifle has not been fired beyond normal factory testing. The Ruger® Mini-14® Ranch rifle was first introduced in 1982, and was described in that year’s firearms catalog as a rifle that “incorporates an ideal scope mounting system – integral scope bases in the receiver accept the proven solid steel Ruger mounting rings . . . for correct, comfortable scope use and convenience in carrying. All the basic Mini-14 design have been retained in the Ranch Rifle.” This auto-loading rifle features a stainless 18-1/2” barrel, steel receiver and trigger guard, a fold-down rear peep sight and blade front sight. Other features include an American hardwood stock with a molded sporter-type metal butt plate, ventilated glass fibre hand-guard, integral scope bases, sling swivels, and a 5-round magazine." (Quoted from Ruger's GunBroker description.)
100% of the proceeds from Ruger's auction will go to Honored American Veterans Afield. Click here or on the picture to visit the GunBroker page for this fine Ruger rifle.
