    Ruger Mini 30

    581 Series. That's important for barrel thickness and therefore accuracy. MOA on handloads. I consider this a nicely set up Mini. Has dropped many an animal but has not been flogged. It's been my bush gun.

    Comes with DPT can but not scope. Two mags, alternative gas bushings, lock.

    Nice rifles and a great caliber for bush work, I have had several over the years. I have a 10 round mag for one if anyone is interested.

    If this had come on sale 3 weeks ago :'-(

    I had my heart set on mini 30, but at $1900 just could not justify, and instead bought 2 firearms for less than that...however $1400 I could have done!!!

    Would you consider trades with cash/stuff?

    This is a brilliant bush gun, nice and short for NZ bush conditions and is obviously an animal stopper, being .30 cal.

    I had a DPT can fitted by DPT themselves, so it is all as it should be there - nice and tight fitting and excellent noise reduction. The DPT can is included as shown and has a threaded end cap for the barrel. I can include a .30 cal stainless blast baffle for an additional $50 ($75 new).

    I have also two additional gas bushings manufactured locally to reduce the gas blow back through the open piston system. I have the intermediate bushing fitted at the moment which ensures reliability while also reducing the harshness of the action due to the suppressor. I have a smaller bushing as well which literally drops the brass on the bench beside you but can occasionally cause brass to not eject properly. If you were shooting off a bench this is a great option.

    Scope is not included, but rings as shown are. The scope is a vortex which I intend to move to another rifle.

    This is a 581 series Mini with the intermediate barrel. This means it is the thicker barrel than the original Mini's which resolved the accuracy issues. It does not have the stepped taper immediately after the gas block which is what ruger ended up running with for aesthetics.

    It is a great shooter. I have shot MOA with handloads, but using boxed ammo (seems to prefer highland but not PPU until the barrel is warm) is probably 1.5-2 MOA if you're a lazy shooter.

    The farthest I have ever shot it is 100m at the range and it dropped a fallow buck on the spot at the same distance no worries. Head shot a hare at 40m with it one time.

    Happy for test fires at Manawatu RRGC if you're local.

    Sorry - having trouble uploading photos at present but can send to emails if you like.
