Even with the Leupold 36X scope looking totally out of place, the new Ruger Mini-14 Ranch Rifle cut a bold picture. But its accuracy made us think a scope isn't needed. We liked the rifle's look, its stock and stainless metal, and its handling qualities. It fed, fired, and functioned perfectly.

The Ruger came with one magazine, but all aftermarket mags ought to work in it. The stock had decent checkering, and the action was more rounded at the back. We liked the new, protected, ghost-ring rear aperture and would use in it place of any scope.
The M-14-type safety worked, but we'd bet lots of shooters won't much like it. Workmanship was excellent, per Ruger standards.
