Make: Ruger

Model: Mini-14 (180 series)

Caliber: .223

Location (city or county): Ventura (93004)

Price: SOLD

Will ship (Y/N): Yes.

Other info: Shipping price negotiable. Local face-to-face transaction negotiable.

Rifle also comes with two 10-round magazines and a sight adjustment tool (brand new, never used.) The magazines, while nothing is stamped on them so they are not a name-brand product ... they preform flawlessly. They have never failed to feed correctly that I know of. All magazines fit snugly and securely in this rifle.

I have owned this rifle for 7 years, and the time has come to part ways. During that time, it has had less than 2,000 rounds put through it. Rarely shot by me, mostly a safe queen. 1976 model, stamped with: "MADE IN THE 200TH YEAR OF AMERICAN LIBERTY" on the receiver. The wood is very nice, and brightens considerably in the sun. They don't make 'em like this anymore!

To be an honest seller, I will disclose two issues about the rifle. The previous owner had a flash hider or muzzle break on this rifle, and for that reason there are two small drill marks underneath the tip of the muzzle (due to CG's 6 image limit, I cannot post a picture of this until tomorrow.) This was not made known to me by the previous owner, so the rifle was purchased this way. Also, the recoil spring most likely needs to be replaced soon, as it doesn't feel as stiff as it should. (I compared it with my brothers newer Mini.) These are very inexpensive, as far as gun parts go.

The rifle will be shipped fully cleaned to the best of my abilities.

Serial # 180-52369
