Hi
My question is how do you know that it's a Ranch Rifle if it does not say it on the side of the rifle.
Question: would it say on the side of the rifle?

The serial number: 181-87245 if you know the serial number, can you tell how old it is?

Would the serial number say if it's a Ranch model?

thank you

Ranch models have integral ring mounts for the scope. Hard to describe them... They are two flat spots before and after the breach, with 'half-moon' indents on both sides, for mounting the Ruger-supplied scope rings. The NON-Ranch models do not have a place to mount a scope (without modification of course). You should be able to tell at a glance.

Hi

your comments: Ranch models have integral ring mounts

//// I went to www.ruger.com but the photo of the Mini 14 Ranch was to small.

besides having the notches for the scope rings on the reciever, the ranch rifle has the tiny flip down rear sight, the non-ranch version has the larger M-14 style rear sight, it is a more robust sight, you can tell at a glance if it is a ranch or a standard model at a glance from 30 yards away.....gut

the ranch has an improved ejection patters so it won't harm the scope.
