Ruger Mini-14 Ranch Rifle Single Shot BAO 223 Rem British Bolt Action Only Straight Pull In Box RARE!

This is one of the rarest Ruger rifles ever made. Thanks to Great Britain’s insane gun laws Ruger could only offer the Mini-14 Ranch Rifle there if it was not semi-automatic. The result was a Mini-14 Ranch Rifle with no gas port (therefore requiring manual operation of the slide) introduced to the British market about 1998 and known as model number 01878 and catalog number KM145RPGBAO. It was called “Bolt Action Only” by Ruger and “Straight Pull Rifle” by the British and this one is almost certainly one of 45 that were sold to Williams Shooters Supply after the British contract had ended. It is estimated that only 50 to 100 were made. It features an 18” barrel with bird cage flash suppressor and military style front sight, integral scope mount bases, folding adjustable aperture rear sight, M14 style trigger group, safety and magazine release, 5 round magazine (it will accept other capacity magazines), sling swivels and checkered Zytel stock with grip cap and recoil pad. It comes in it serialized box with scope rings, cable lock and manual. It is in excellent condition retaining about 97% matte finish with some slight action wear and some scrapes along the bottom of the barrel while the bore is perfect as is the stock. A really rare Ruger that you’re not likely to come across again.
