I've had this Ruger Mini-14 Ranch Rifle since college. I don't remember the exact year it was purchased however I have the original book that came with the gun and the copyright date on that is 1987, so I guess it was about that time. My point is that it's certainly a pre-ban gun. Serial number 188-02xxx. It hasn't been fired much over the years and so is in excellent condition. Certainly under 500 rounds through this rifle. Several years ago I had replaced the original wooden stock with a synthetic one (Choate) and gave the wooden one to a friend. In retrospect, not a great idea. This rifle is also equipted with an M-14 style front sight/flash supressor. I am asking 500.00 for this rifle and would be eager to email pix. I can't seem to get them uploaded here so contact me for info. FTF in Long Island N.Y. would be a plus but I can ship if necessary but would require personal info and perhaps FFL to ship to. I'll throw in a few extras also. 2 30 round Ram Line mags as well as a sorta of OK condition used 4x Weaver Scope.
Thanks for all who inquired,
BTW, I haven't had many merchandise exchanges here but my Ebay name is Trex187 and have an unblemished feedback record of over 200 transactions so my description and my business ethics are top notch. Deal with me in confidance.
***Edited to include:Synthetic stock is made by Choate.***
