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.
