Nothing more than company blurbs.

I wonder if they'll ever do a Mini-30 in 6.5 Grendel?

I like that they brought a good aperture sight into protduction. At a range I was shooting my old Polythech Legend at ,someone next to me had a 5.56 Ranch Rifle with the little folding rear sight. Guess what fell off during the first 5 shot string from the sandbags???Between the bad muzzle crowns on many production rifles,iffy triggers lack of tings I'd like( integral stripper clip guides,10 to 30 round mags) AND the flimsy rear sight....
Here's to hoping this represents the start of a new Sturm&Ruger production trend.

Felt my heart stop for a second after seeing the suggested price.

Guess that would have been the first long range kill with a Mini 14.
:p

I suppose Ruger will only offer 5rd mags?

Risiasi, the barrel is beefed up a bit. If you look at where the stock ends around the barrel, the barrel begins to thin up a bit. However, it doesn't go to the crown...
