Shooters have long lamented the lack of
availability of the twenty-round magazines for the Ruger
Mini-14 rifle. Last year, Ruger started shipping their NRA
Special Mini-14 Ranch Rifles with a twenty-round magazine, and
have been recently selling them to Mini-14 owners separately.
Just today, I received a press release that Ruger is promoting
as an “Inaugural Special” the Mini-14 twenty-round magazines
for a discounted price of $29.95. As I sit here on the eve of
election day, Barack Obama has a very good chance of
winning the Presidential election in the US, as more and more of
our population are leaning towards the socialism that he is
promoting. Any way, no matter who wins, Ruger is offering these
magazines at this special price through Inauguration Day;
January 20th, 2009. I have seen these magazines
selling for 100 bucks each after the first assault weapons and
magazine ban under the Clinton Administration, and Obama
has vowed to support another such ban. These magazine will fit
all Ruger Mini-14 and Ranch Rifles chambered for the .223
Remington or 5.56mm NATO cartridges. Below is a copy of the
Ruger press release. Get ‘em while you can!

The Ruger Mini-14 series of rifles has been
extremely popular since first introduced in 1974. Long
considered simple, rugged, and reliable, these rifles have
proven so popular around the woods, farm, and ranch that they
earned the nickname "Ranch Rifle.” All Mini-14 rifles
come from the factory with integral scope mounts.
For 2008 only, Ruger is offering a special
edition NRA Mini-14 rifle. This rifle ships with two,
20-round magazines and a portion of the sales from each rifle is
donated to the NRA
Institute for Legislative Action to support its ongoing
efforts in defending our Second Amendment rights. The NRA
Mini-14 features a blued finish and 16-1/8" barrel in a
patented black Hogue OverMolded™ stock, and the grip
cap of the stock features an NRA metal gold-tone logo.
