    16.5” barrel
    Comb stock
    Standard open sights


    10 absolutely perfect
    2 barely functions
    1 Doesn’t function

    Accuracy 7/10
    I have one accuracy was decent. I haven’t gone for groups yet. With cheep wolf it was
    easy to get 4 ½” clay pigeons at 100yd with standard irons prone. With brass cased decent ammo the thing could probably top out at 1”-1.5” groups.

    Weight/ Balance 9/10
    6lb’s is decent a little heavy for that style of rifle. It does have good balance though centers between both hands.

    Barrel 8/10
    Barrel was basically a bull barrel and heats up slowly (Using 16.5”).

    Trigger 7/10
    Trigger was light and smooth (Doesn’t fell like a standard 870 trigger).

    Ergonomics 9/10
    Feel’s like an 870

    Action 9/10
    It was considerably smoother than my 870’s. It was a little hard to work in prone.

    Finish 7/10
    It’s ok but seems a little thin for my liking (Easy fix). Not a cheep plastic gun like the Kel-tec’s its all metal but the stock (nothngs realy wrong with Kel-tec’s).

    Magazine 10/10
    The Magazine drops free when buttons pressed. Smooth and reliable. Takes AR magazines which is of course a big plus.

    Reliability 10/10
    It was perfectly reliable except for a few minor things that I caused.

    Price 10/10
    Decent
    $559.00 before stuff
    $625.00 out the door


    Miscellaneous
    The forward swivel stud moves back with the slide. You can’t carry it using the sling with the action back. This just bothers me for some reason.


    Final 86/100
    86%

    Better than its main competition the Mini 14 in nearly every way.It isn’t quite as good a deal as an Su-16 but if your worried about long term reliability with plastics this is your gun. Another overlooked bonus is if you have a 20gauge 870 about 50% of the parts interchange. Over all a good buy and I am very happy with it.

    More pictures here. I am getting an error when I try to post other photo’s.

    I'm VERY interested in this rifle. Affordable, 870-reliable, AR-15 accurate. Best of all it takes AR-15 mags.

    Looks like the Mini-14 is history.

    I'm going to send an email to Ruger explaining why they just lost another potential customer.

    Every time I go to my local shop I look at these as a viable alternative to an AR-15 for .223. So many choices, so little money.

    I only recent learned of the existence of the Remington 7615... and now I want one... :D

    I posted on another thread, asking if anyone knew whether they were California-legal or not, but didn't get a response. Does anyone here know if they are?

    It looks interesting, but the price seems a bit high. For those of us in free states, $575ish isn't that much lower than a real AR. I might go for one if I see one for $400 or less, but I'm highly doubting I will.

    Pumps are not covered by California’s stupid AW laws.

    Interesting rifle, but I also feel it’s too pricey. Seems like it should be around $400-450.

    I'm So Confused!

    Is it an ASSAULT RIFLE or isn't it?

    It's black. Must be.
    It has a HIGH CAPACITY MAGAZINE! Must be.
    It has a pump action. Hmmm...that doesn't qualify.
    It doesn't have a PISTOL GRIP. That doesn't qualify either.
    It isn't able to be turned into a machine gun with simple tools. That doesn't qualify.

    It looks like some kind of evil hybrid designed by the NRA to thwart the new AWB rules.

    So confusing...:confused:

    No way i'm relinquishing my Mini 14s for a overpriced manually-operated gun.

    Been placing very well in NRA highpower matches with those mini's :rolleyes: DIDN'T THINK SO

    How about those readily avalible high quality $15 high cap magazines, OH WAIT? Bill Ruger didn't think you needed those


    :neener:
    The Mini series the best darn $300 rifle out there that $600 can buy:neener:

    Decent compared to what, a Colt AR-15?

    You can build a parts-kit AR for that price easy, or do a Saiga conversion on a .223 and get AK reliability and semi-auto action for less than this thing.

    I only see this being semi-useful for people stuck in unAmerican states.

    I'd be interested in a 7400/1187 or whatever semiatuo version, but I have an AR already. :)

    LOL

    And yet is anyone really proud of or really really TRUST their $600 AR, I sure wouldn't. You get what you pay for in the world of AR's. And when you put together a $600 AR that's what you have is a bag of mixed parts that your stuck with


    In my opinion the AK variant isn't accurate enough to even deserve a consideration.

    Some of us just like pump actions and don't want to either be a lemming or to buy whatever is the absolute cheapest. Me, I think of my 7615 as an AR15 with a manual transmission.

    You can just save those old, tired knocks because mine were procured for home defense rather than National Match competition and/or tactical super sniper use.

    44mag.com has supplied me with plenty of genuine 20 round Ruger factory mags.

    It comes as no surprise that the Mini has been in continuous production since the mid 1970s and shall probably endure for decades to come.

    ¡Viva La Mini 14!:neener:

    True. This gun (7615) may appeal to those in the UNamerican states. I think the superior strength, reliability, accuracy, speedy follow ups and the luxury of AR-15 mags is a winning combination for the ~$600.

    I'd trust the 7615 to cycle reliably over a mix-master AR15.

    At $54.99 each, and once they sell out they will not be getting anymore from Ruger.

    WOW!

    For the price of 10.9 20rd magazines for a Mini14 you could buy the complete 7615. The mini looks worse and worse as this thread progresses.:neener:

    So what you're really saying is your MINI isn't accurate enough to do BOTH:rolleyes:

    Perhaps not everyone has the time or propensity for competitive shooting activities?

    For a yokel like myself, the Mini is more than adequate for delivering a high velocity flat trajectory round at extreme close range.:D

    The sights seem to be a bit short in length but I love the acceptance of 30 round mags. I wonder about the bolt assembly and housing. Plastic housings are a turn off.
