Ruger has offered a selective fire variant of the Mini 14 for sale, the AC-556, to police and military customers. The difference is that the AC-556 models have a slightly longer receiver. There is also a GB version that is for sale to military and is customized with short barrels, flash hiders and other specialty accessories.


The Currently Available Versions and Mini 14 configurations:

Ranch Rifle

This variant has scope bases integrated into the receiver, and an ejector that ejects the spent cartridge case at a lower angle to avoid hitting a low-mounted scope.
