The mini-14 shoots .223 Remington or 5.56 x 45 nato, the mini-30 shoots 7.62x 39mm, the Ranch is designed for a scope, i.e. it ejects brass to the right, the receiver is groved, & comes with scope rings. The mini-14 was origionally manuf. post ban, i.e. before 1994 so Ruger made some 20 rd. mags. They are some out there. Also other manuf also made some. The mini-30 is harder to get decent hi cap mags. Hope this helps.
Hey Tocodog, sorry I missed your last question. I asked my papy what was a hiatus, and he said it was the thing between my ears. There was no hiatus in manuf. between 1994, and 2000. It was an older list that stoped in 94, and I added mine which was a 196- . I just don't have an updated list to fill in the gap. Sorry for the confusion.
