Ruger Introduces Mini Thirty, 10/22 Tactical Rifles

Ye Olde Press Release, minus the prices ($921 and $316-ish)

Mini Thirty Tactical Rifle

Announcing a new model of the simple, rugged and reliable Mini Thirty® Rifle, the Mini Thirty Tactical Rifle. Like all Ruger® Mini Thirty rifles, which have been extremely popular since first introduced in 1991, the Mini Thirty Tactical allows shooters to fire the 7.62 X 39 round in an affordable, quality, American-made auto-loading rifle . . .

The Mini Thirty Tactical has a blued 16-1/8″ barrel with flash suppressor and comes with a black synthetic stock. The rifle weighs approximately 6.75 pounds, has an overall length of 37.5 inches, and is shipped with one 20-round magazine.

The sighting system on the Mini Thirty Tactical includes an adjustable “ghost ring” aperture rear sight and a protected, non-glare post front sight. Patented Ruger scope bases are machined directly into the receiver and can never shoot loose. A set of Ruger scope rings is included at no charge with each rifle. Side ejection of cartridge cases easily clears the lowest-mounted optics, and a patented recoil buffer helps protect optics from damage from repeated firing.

The 10/22® Tactical Rifle

Announcing the new Ruger® 10/22-FS rifle featuring the Ruger SR-556®/Mini-14®-style flash suppressor. This threaded barrel version of the popular Ruger 10/22® rifle allows owners to attach an assortment of muzzle accessories to one of America’s favorite rimfire rifles.

The Ruger 10/22-FS features a precision-rifled, cold hammer-forged 16-1/8″ alloy steel barrel with black matte finish. The factory 1/2-28 thread barrel offers Ruger 10/22 owners the convenience and cost effectiveness of a threaded barrel necessary for many custom built firearms.

With a black synthetic stock and carbine length barrel, the Ruger 10/22-FS weighs in at 4.3 lbs., the lightest weight 10/22 available today from Ruger.

The Ruger 10/22-FS has an overall length of 36-1/4 inches, features a 13.5″ length of pull and comes with a combination scope base adapter and reliable Ruger rotary magazine.

    $921 for a Mini-14? I don’t care what its chambered for, that’s awfully steep. Prior versions of the Mini-30 have been notoriously inaccurate.

    If Ruger had made the Mini-30 accept AK magazines, they'd have really been on to something. I might strongly consider buying one in that case…
