    Ruger Mini 30 Tactical - with 20 round mags

    Just saw that Ruger has introduced a "tactical" version of the Mini 30, chambered in 7.62 x 39. Biggest difference is that, for the first time (IIRC), Ruger is offering 20-round mags for the Mini 30 to the general public.

    So, if you like the classic M1/M14 action, but prefer the ballistics of the 7.62 x 39 over the 5.56, give it a look.

    The prices are about double what I payed for my mini 30 ranch about 8 years ago

    Last gun show in Denver, we picked up several factory 20rnd magazines for the Mini 30.

    How long ago was that? The newer Minis with the tapered barrels are MUCH more accurate than the old ones. I can attest to that from personal experience with my (newer) Mini 14.

    Lower prices must have been before the Mini was tactical Average retail should be $8--.--, I think I'll pass. Always been interested in '30 but not at those prices.

    Neat-looking rifle, but too steep for me...

    I purchased the rifle new in 2005 and sold it in 2007. Likely before the "new" barrels came on. Its a fun and tough, solid platform without a doubt, and while not a tack driver it will get the JOB done for the shooter looking for a truck gun, farm/ranch gun or plinker. And anybody who likes Mr. Garands rifle or the M14 will love the Mini. Heck I may even try another one in the near future.

    Bud's has the Mini 30 for $687...can't imagine the street price on the "Tactical" will be too much more.
