Sturm, Ruger & Co. has announced that the Mini-14 Tactical rifle is now available in 300 AAC Blackout. This newest version of the Mini-14 rifle features an optimized gas port that cycles with both supersonic ammunition and subsonic ammunition when a sound suppressor is installed. The rifle weighs approximately 6.75 lbs., features a 16.1", 5/8"-24 threaded barrel with a 1:7" twist rate, and is supplied with two, 20-round detachable box magazines.

"This is an exciting addition to the Mini-14 rifle line," said Ruger CEO Mike Fifer. "The ability to run the wide range of ammunition available, from suppressed subsonics to unsuppressed supersonics, broadens the versatility of the timeless Mini-14 rifle. With its solid reputation for reliability, the new Mini-14 Tactical rifle is an obvious choice for those who want an autoloading rifle chambered in the 300 AAC Blackout," he added.

The Mini-14's cold hammer-forged, medium contour, alloy steel barrel and receiver feature a matte black oxide finish. The 16.1", 5/8"-24 threaded barrel comes with a Ruger flash suppressor, which can be removed to attach sound suppressors or other threaded barrel accessories. The rifle's stock is made of a rugged and durable glass-reinforced nylon. The two, 20-round steel magazines provided with the rifle are laser engraved to clearly identify the rifle's chambering. A protected, non-glare, post front sight and receiver-mounted, adjustable ghost ring rear sight offer out-of-the-box usability. The receiver-mounted Picatinny rail provided with all Mini-14 rifles offers options for mounting an assortment of optics such as scopes and red dots. All Mini-14 rifles also feature Ruger integral scope mounts and come with Ruger scope rings for conventional scope mounting.

American Rifleman Associate Editor Kelly Young was one of the first members of the firearm media to shoot the gun last week at FTW Ranch in Barksdale, Texas.
