Rare Southport Mini 14
As requested here are pictures of the Southport Model I found. Rifle is in excellent condition.
It came with the original box, warranty card and curiously enough a 181 series manual. I believe the original owner sent the rifle back to Ruger for service in 1980 as there is a postage stamp on the box from 1980. I suspect the manual was provided then.
Serial number is 180-00783.
Ruger records department advised the rifle was sold January 1975.
