Straight pull, hand cycled Mini-14 for countries that ban semi-autos. Interesting kinda like the old .222 Colt AR15's for countries that banned military calibers.

Nice. :rolleyes:

I think it's a pretty neat piece actually--I also commend Ruger for producing a firearm specifically for consumers in countries that have been subdued to strict gun laws. Not very often that happens. You don't see HK trying to help out us Californians.

Oh please, don't even try and make it sound like ruger cares about guns owners who are "subdued to strict gun laws". We have Ruger to thank for no pistol grips and limited 10 round mags in Cali. :mad:

^^^ seriously, Id rather just have a damn remington 700 with a Badger mag system with a nice stiff barrel shopped down to 18 and a ACOG its the assault rifle for countries that can't have semi's :) .

The straight pull versions of semi and full auto rifles are a big deal in the UK; kind of like our belt fed semi autos are for us here in KA. The UK Army cadets (like our ROTC) use a straight pull version of the L85 rifle (the L98).

What you just mentioned is at least two times the cost of that Ruger.

It's also about two times better and two times more accurate and it was kind of a joke bud. There are way better choices than that any milsurp bolt rifle that uses stripper clips would be much more cost effective and accurate. The point Im trying to make is for that price you can get a standard bolt rifle instead of wasting time on a "pull action" Mini 14 and it will out perform that all damn day.

How about this,a Remington 700 in .223 that takes Mini 14 magazines.

I wonder why no one has imported it into the USA.
May sell for being different.

We looked at AR-15 mags,it would have required new bottom metal and removing a LOT of metal from the receiver.

Here's a thread on Snipershide about the JAG Mag kit, let me know if you have any questions.
