Since their first Mini-14 in 1975, Ruger's Mini-14, Mini-30 (Ruger calls it "Mini Thirty"), Ranch Rifles, Mini 14 GB, 6.8mm SPC Ranch Rifle, and variations of this famous carbine have become favored for hunting, protection, and recreation. It has been used by many U.S. law enforcement agencies. Believe it or not, for a brief time in the 1980's, it was used by the U.S. Marine Corps in a non-combat role. Like other Ruger products, it has a reputation for reliability and value. It is an American favorite - one of the best selling firearms here each year! The Mini-14 also finds lots of fans globally. Police in France use it in .223 Remington. Many civilians own Mini's in civilian calibers, like .222 Rem., in jurisdictions where it is forbidden by law to own "military" caliber rifles.

Pre 2005 Mini

Almost all Mini 14 and 30, Ranch Rifle pre 2005 models have a ramped front sight Unfortunately, the factory issued, PRE-2005 Ruger Mini-14 (and variants) have one major drawback: ACCURACY! The barrel and design provide typical accuracy of only 3 to 5 inch groups at 100 yards (an average of 4 minutes of angle (4 MOA)); very poor compared to most AR15's. It can be said that the pre-2005 Ruger Mini has accuracy comparable to a basic AK47, and that may be as good as most people need for a utilitarian tool like the Mini.

Post 2004 Mini

Mini 14 and 30, Ranch Rifle post 2004 models have a wing protected front sight SOME POST-2005 (new model) Mini 14's are capable of 1 inch groups at 100 yards (1 MOA) using match grade ammo. They also have barrels with a 1:8 twist, which means they can stabilize heavier bullets, like the 75 grain boattail hollow point (BTHP) from Hornady or the 77 grain BTHP from Sierra.
