    Ok this is very cool .... It is a MINI14GB model but bolt action ...Yeah I did not think I would ever see one of them in the USA ..It was made for the UK market as you cant own centerfire semi auto there .. I kind of what to bid on them to see what was done to it make it bolt action only ...Plus a straight pull Mini 14 ...Hum

    I am guessing as it is prob one of the very few in the USA ..These were only made for England after the 88 rifle ban ..They also made some mini 30 that way

    I just find it funny they used a GB model as a base not say a normal ranch rifle . A bolt action rifle with a bayonet lug and flash hidder is intersting esp on this .

    And I am guessing prob not many made as the UK gun market is pretty small

    I am really surpised Ruger does not offer this is a option for ban states or countries more like Austrila etc

    Cut the gas tube in half on an AR and you have a bolt action AR . . . but why?

    Yeah, unfortunately the ruling bureaucrats of the UK & many other countries keep the gun market small. The second amendment is foreign to them. It's all about control.

    Its made for UK market you cant own semi auto centerfire rifles there at all ( prob same market as for other countries like that ) ..So a whole range of AK,AR etc have been made that have no gas system and are straight pull for hunting and sport shooting

    My point was: Why have a neutered semi-auto at all? Just get a bolt action and carry on. In the end, you'll probably have a better rifle.

    I would guess
    1. Other then being semi auto they are no other(as of right now at least ) limits on rifles ..So if you want to use a 20 or 100 round mag in your bolt aciton you can ..Only a few pure bolt action can take over 5 or 10 round mags
    2. People who owned these guns pre 1988 and were forced to give them up but now want to use scopes or re live the fun have a chance
    3. Lot of people over there are like us they are into military style guns or military stly shooting clubs and this is as good as your are going to get
    4. Prob givein it to the man oh you want me to own a 5 shot fud rifle you say ..Naw I will buy this

    Ergonomics of a semi auto short barrel carbine is great-turning it into a magazine fed bolt action not so much-

    I've tried to visualize the need for a bolt action Mini 14, and come up blank. Different strokes for different folks.
