A special edition Mini-14 rifle will be produced in 2008 to raise money for the NRA Institute for Legislative Action. It features a blued finish and 16-1/8″ barrel in a patented black Hogue OverMolded stock. The grip cap of the stock features an NRA metal gold-tone logo. This special rifle is chambered for 223 Remington and ships with two 20-round magazines.
We are extremely pleased to be partnering with the NRA on this special project Mini-14 to support the Institute for Legislative Action, said Ruger President Stephen L. Sanetti. It is very important that we, as an industry and as individuals, support the efforts of the ILA as they work to protect our Second Amendment rights. A portion of the sales from each rifle will go to the NRA-ILA to support their ongoing efforts. This project is also made possible through the support of Hogue Stocks, one of our key vendors, and through our distributors.
Patented Hogue OverMolded stocks are constructed by molding a super strong and rigid fiberglass reinforced insert or “skeleton” that precisely fits the firearms action. The stocks are then OverMolded with an exclusive rubber compound. This provides the ultimate in shooting comfort, is non-slip in adverse weather and creates a super quiet finish while walking in wooded or brushy country.
Established in 1975, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) is the legislative arm of the National Rifle Association of America. ILA is committed to preserving the right of all law-abiding individuals to purchase, possess and use firearms for legitimate purposes as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
