Decades old and still vastly popular, Ruger's Mini-14 has few limits. The company's miniaturized version of the legendary M14, the Mini-14 is ideal for use on the farm and ranch, in the woods, at the range or for personal defense.

Available in a variety of configurations—the Ranch Rifle version is featured here—the Mini-14 can be adapted to suit any gun owners' personal requirements, and it's that versatility that has made it one of the most recognized firearms in the industry.

Ruger's Mini-14 is a classic, and is without a doubt something that belongs in any gun owner's collection. If that doesn't make a firearm the Gun of the Week, what does?
