Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. announces 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 reliably cycles with both supersonic ammunition and subsonic ammunition when a sound suppressor is installed. The rifle weighs approximately 6.75 pounds, features a 16.1 inch, 5/8x24-inch 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 inch, 5/8x24-inch 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.
