Sturm, Ruger this month unveiled two new Tactical series installments to their rugged .223-caliber Mini-14 line of semi-auto rifles.

Both models run a compact 16.12-inch hammer-forged barrel with a factory-installed flash suppressor and feature integral scope mounts, machined directly on the solid steel receiver. What separates the two new rifles are furniture options, with the first sporting a Strikeforce ATI 6-position stock that is both collapsible and folding while the second Mini has a more traditional brown hardwood stock that is speckled black.

Each also has a blade front with an adjustable ghost ring rear sight. Like other Ruger Ranch Rifles and Mini-14 pattern carbines, they have the company’s typical Garand-style action with a breech bolt locking system and fixed-piston gas system.

Both rifles have barrels with a 6-groove 1-in-9 RH thread pattern and 1/2X28TPI thread pitch on the muzzle device. Shipping with two 20-round magazines, a Picatinny rail, and scope rings, MSRP is $1,069 regardless of the model.
