that is a newer model ranch.The posties stopped in 1993 with serial # starting with 188-xxxxx. Try this link to see if it gets you to the page that had all the pre bans listed. Hope this works. http://perfectunion.com/forums/showthread.php? threadid=664
hard to tell now that mini-14 world is gone. they used to have a production date to serial number page to tell. mine is a 187 and i think it was made 1989-1991 or so if it helps but i think yours is post ban but i'm not positive..later
You can also just call Ruger directly, they will tell you the exact date of manufacture, what accesories it came with. They were very pleasent & helpful to me. The # is:
8-4:30 Mon. - Fri ET
Looks like it is post ban. Found a guy selling it with hi cap mag, flash hider, and folding stock. It looked REAL nice. Price was below what I would expect - this is probably why. The gun is essentially illegal.
replacing the stock is not a big deal or welding it, but the folding stock might bring a good price on an auction site. The mag has to be pre ban unless it's marked LEO. I don't have a soution for the flash hider unless it's a pin on. still alot of work for a rifle you probably don't want.
Are you looking for a preban folder GB?
Man they are nice
