Their short barrels and overall short length make them favorites in any application where maneuverability and ease of handling are priorities. With a variety of configurations from the standard Ranch Rifle, to the extremely accurate Mini-14 Target Rifle, to the Tactical models with ATI folding stock or compact barrel with flash suppressor - there is a Mini-14 or Mini Thirty to meet any demand. Specifically designed for mounting today's scopes or other optical sighting systems, these rifles include a side ejection to clear the top mounted scope, and a patented recoil buffer which protects the scope from damage or shifting the point of impact as the semi-automatic action cycles.

"I ordered this rifle from CTD and they shipped it fast and free to the FFL. This version of the mini 30 has the thicker barrel all the way to the flash suppressor and comes with 2 twenty round mags. I bought this so I could shoot inexpensive ammo but I had heard of problems with the mini's firing steel cased russian ammo. I took a chance and it seems to be true. I don't know why Ruger hasn't fixed the problem. I think the firing pin needs to strike deeper into the primer. I have only put 39 rounds (would have been 40) of herter's steel cased ammo through it so far and had 2 FTF's. Of the two FTF's - one fired when reloaded and one would not after 3 attempts. Not as bad as it could have been but still not good enough for self defense in my opinion. I will try to identify the area of the firing pin that is keeping it from protruding far enough and see if I can fix that. I don't have any info on the accuracy of this rifle yet (just test fired it off hand) and I am not expecting anything super from it. I wanted it to be a plinker and a ranch rifle to carry with me when working in the field but need it to be reliable enough just in case. The rifle feels good, is fun to shoot and cycles and ejects perfectly if the round fires. All that said, it is a good quality rifle that I am happy with. I had 95% reliability with it with inexpensive ammo but If I can make it 100% reliable I will really be happy with it."
