The Ruger American Rifle® Ranch model is now chambered in 7.62×39 and fed by the Mini Thirty® magazine. In response to customer feedback, Ruger has combined the power of the classic 7.62×39 cartridge with the compact, bolt-action platform of the Ranch model.
Thirty years after the introduction of the Mini Thirty, its cartridge and magazine have found a new home. The magazine well of the Ruger American Rifle Ranch model is designed to accept Mini Thirty metal box magazines, which are properly positioned for reliable feeding. The magazine release is located in front of the trigger guard for easy manipulation. The rifle ships with a compact, 5-round magazine suitable for hunting.
An extension of the Ruger American Rifle family, the Ranch model is compact, accurate and adaptable. The 16.10″ medium-contour, cold hammer-forged barrel features a 5/8″-24 threaded muzzle, readying the rifle for any .30 caliber muzzle device. Like all Ruger American Rifles, this new Ranch model includes the Ruger Marksman Adjustable™ trigger and Ruger’s patented Power Bedding® system for consistent and accurate performance.
