The Ruger® Mini-14® Ranch Semi-Auto Rifle is a scaled down version of the US M-14 with no selective fire switch. All models of Ruger's Mini-14 semi-auto rifles have a solid reputation for being absolutely reliable under all conditions, and have proven themselves in both law enforcement and military use worldwide. The Ranch Rifle operates with a very simple Garand-style design that uses a fixed-piston gas system where gas impinges directly upon the operating rod, and a breech bolt locking system. The Mini-14 action is not sensitive to the type of ammunition it uses, cycling both commercial .223 Remington and 5.56 NATO ammo interchangeably. A large extractor and fixed ejector send spent cases flying swiftly to the right of the shooter. The ejector is set to eject cases low to avoid hitting a mounted scope. No tools are required to quickly fieldstrip the rifle down to a few large parts that are not easily misplaced, and it reassembles just as quickly. The Stainless/Synthetic Ranch Rifle comes with a stainless steel barrel and receiver, a black composite stock, and a synthetic ventilated hand guard that are impervious to weather. Texturing on the stock's fore-end and pistol grip afford a solid hold, and a flat, serrated butt-plate keeps the rifle on the shoulder during rapid fire. A ghost ring, adjustable rear aperture sight and a protected, 3-prong post front sight provide for rapid target acquisition, and hold up to rugged use. Integral scope mounts are machined into the receiver for mounting an optical sight with the included Ruger scope rings. The Ruger Mini-14 Ranch Rifle is a fast handling rifle that's great for hunting, home-defense, and emergency preparation. Made in USA.

Ruger Mini 14 This is the rifle I used many years ago on a municiple SWAT Team., I selected this weapon because it was reliable and accurate out to 100-150 yards or so. That said, here's the skinny on this weapon guys. It is reliable, accurate for the stated purposes and never,,, NEVER malfunctioned on me. I could take this weapon out to 200 yards on a basketball sized target with the iron sights. It is a easy shooting gun with minimal recoil. Easy to maintain and clean, and shoulders well even for smaller shooters. The downside goes like this. I wouldn't depend on this weapon much beyond 150 yards even though I could hit the target further out. Do not even THINK of putting a scope on this weapon. Because of it's design the mounts,, not the rifle or scope,, are just not reliable. In addition, the rear sight is a pain. It's great once you get it set up but getting to that point is a hassel. Overall, I liked the weapon. When the AR's were jamming up and wouldn't fire, the Mini was just cranking along with never a problem. If I wanted a good all around weapon for 150 yards or less, you can't beat this one. It's a fun gun to shoot and a great trainer for kids. But stay with the iron sights. January 16, 2012
One of my favorites This is one of my favorite guns. I know a lot of people will complain about accuracy. If you fancy yourself as some kind of sniper and want a tack driver, you should buy a bolt action with a 28 inch heavy barrel. This is fun to shoot and is very reliable. You can buy an AR for twice the money, but, from what I've read, they have a much greater tendency to jam. The Mini 14 is easy to carry and a good varmint gun. March 17, 2011
Fun to shoot! I've never shot a rifle more fun to shoot than this one. Its no tack driver at 100 yards and out but its not designed for that. Perfect rifle for coyotes or any other varmits. Light recoil and relatively inexpensive to shoot...mine's never hungup and i've shot it quite a bit.. December 22, 2010
Best Gun I Own This gun is excellent. It meets every aspect of it's design criteria. It isn't exactly a marksman's weapon but it wasn't intended to be. It is built strong, operates smoothly, and is perfectly reliable. Have had several successful hog, jackrabbit, and deer hunts with this rifle. Outfitting with 20 and 30 round magazines offer excellent home protection use as well. The only issue I have is prolonged fire (30-50 rounds in 3 minutes or so) really heats up the barrel which can be a concern. It is also somewhat heavy for a carbine. But other than that, there is not a gun I own that I enjoy shooting more than this. I highly recommend it. December 3, 2010

It all depends on your accuracy. I've seen a .223 take out an 800 pound charging Holstein by a crack shot local police tactical team member. The cop just happens to be my neighbour.

A: 
Yes this rifle is designed for .223/5.56. Are they the same round? NO! You can shoot .223 rounds from almost any 5.56 chamber, but ONLY .223 can be used in a .223. The NATO rounds are high pressure military spec and may cause damage/failure to the milder civilian weapon design. The Mini-14 is engineered for both, per their web site where it is listed as .223/5.56

I believe the .223 and 5.56 are the same round, just described in different terms of measurement...like 12 inches or a foot.

Yes. This makes it easy to get cheap ammo because it will fire NATO rounds unlike the finicky AR's.
