For decades, Ruger® Mini-14® rifles and Mini Thirty® 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. With a variety of configurations, there is a Mini-14 or Mini Thirty to meet any demand. 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 model is a rubberized, all-weather Black Hogue® OverMolded® stock version of the Target Mini that is non-slip, durable, and comfortable to shoot. It features a 22” barrel with a matte stainless finish, shoots .223 Rem. and has a 2-round capacity.
