Ruger Firearms has generously donated a Ruger® Mini-14 rifle chambered in .223 to benefit the Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP). The rifle is being auctioned on Gunbroker.com now through January 22nd at 12:30 pm.
This Ruger® Mini-14® rifle has an 18-1/2 inch barrel with flash suppressor. It also features a rear peep sight (adjustable for elevation and windage), and fixed front sight with bayonet lug. Other features include an American hardwood stock with a curved metal butt plate, and a heat-resistant ventilated fiberglass handguard. Also included with this rifle is a wood handguard, and a 5-round magazine. This rifle does not have the manual warning on the barrel. The test fire date of this rifle is August 25, 2010. However, based on the serial number, this rifle would have been manufactured in 1976. There is a letter “U” stamped under the serial number that indicates a “used” firearm. NOTE: This firearm may not be available in all states and locales due to feature-based restrictions. Please check with your local law enforcement agency prior to purchasing to verify that it may legally be purchased and/or possessed in your particular state and locale. The rifle is being sold “as is.” The purchaser assumes all liability for its safe and proper ownership, storage, use, and resale. The Mini-14 rifle will be shipped in the box it had been stored in along with an appropriate instruction manual and locking device. The rifle is a part of the Ruger factory collection in Southport, Connecticut, and a Certificate of Authenticity will be mailed to the winner of the auction.
Ruger has committed to supporting the Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) through a series of Gunbroker.com auctions running through mid-April, with a new auction beginning each Wednesday at 12:30 pm EST. ALL proceeds go towards SASP and upcoming auctions will include many rare “one-of-a-kind” sample firearms!
