One of the most iconic rifles in the American inventory now gets a major update with the introduction of the Mini-14 chambered in 300 Blackout.

With an optimized gas port to reliably cycle both supersonic and subsonic 300BLK ammunition, the Ruger Mini-14 will surely appeal to the classic rifle customer who’s looking for a modern twist.

“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 Ruger Mini-14 features a 16.1 inch medium contour, cold hammer-forged barrel with a 1:7 twist. It’s fitted with a threaded flash hider that can be easily removed to install suppressors. The rifle includes two 20-round magazines engraved with the rifle’s chambering.

The rifle weighs under 7 pounds and comes in with an MSRP of $1,019.
