Make: Ruger

Model: Mini 14

Serial Number: 181-31570

Year of Manufacture: 1978

Caliber: .223 Remington (5.56 Nato, Yes We know there is a SAAMI difference).

Action Type: Semi Auto Rifle, Magazine Fed

Markings: The left side of the receiver is marked “181-31570 / (Safety Warning) Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. / Southport, Conn U.S.A.”. The Ruger monogram is on the top of the frame at the barrel.

Barrel Length: 18”

Sights / Optics: This rifle is mounted with a pinned ramp front sight and a Ruger windage and elevation adjustable rear sight.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The stocks are wood, with a light finish. The wood shows a few surface marks and depressions, with the most significant imperfection being at the upper hand guard, on the left side, where there are two “runs” in the finish. This is apparently as it left the factory. The LOP measures approx. 12 5/8”. The stocks rate in about Fine to Excellent overall condition.

Type of Finish: Blue

Finish Originality: Factory Original

Bore Condition: The bore is bright and the rifling is just a bit fouled, but still sharp. There is no apparent erosion.

Overall Condition: This rifle retains about 93% of its metal finish. The balance of the finish shows some light wear to the edges and a bit of a scrape to the right side of the front sight. The rifle retains the vast majority of its metal finish, showing just some minor age wear. The markings are crisp. Overall, this gun rates in about Fine - Excellent condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly. We have not fired this rifle.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: One 5 round magazine is included.

Our Assessment: The Ruger Mini 14 needs no introduction; one of the most dependable and handiest carbines ever built. With Ruger’s legendary reputation for reliability and quality manufacturing behind them, millions of these handy carbines have been built and enjoyed by thousands of sportsmen, law-enforcement agencies, and plinkers everywhere. A rifle this early in production can even be considered collectible! Hey, it’s a Ruger. I guess you could say Ruger is the 21st century Colt or Winchester…

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This rifle can be transferred in California.
