Our Assessment: Don’t be too deceived by this firearm, it’s a modern take on a classic platform! Ruger found inspiration for this Mini-14 Ranch Rifle in the M1 Garand of all places, with a breech bolt locking system and a fixed-piston gas system that includes a self-cleaning gas cylinder. Harsh operating conditions like those found in open ranch lands or urban environments won’t stop this compact rifle from doing its job. This is a solid firearm and has many more range days in its system, or keep it as a truck gun with its handy folding stock. Either way, you just need to bid on it and add it to your arsenal!
