    I have for sale a new unfired Ruger mini 14 in 222 caliber. It was manufactured between 1985 and 87. I want 1,000.00 for it.

    $1000... really? Are they that much brand new? Looks like a nice rifle, but maybe a bit more of a description would explain the premium price. I've been looking for a mini, but not very educated on the various models and value.

    actually .223/5.56. The Mini's are all chambered to take 5.56 EXCEPT the latest target model. Shoot only .223 in them due to the chamber/leade size.

    The older models do have some features that make them more desirable like a metal trigger group, but not THAT desirable!

    This is a 222 and there were very few released in the United States. It is very rare and a collectors item.

    I dont think that you have seen one in .222 and that is the reason for the price. If you feel that it is too high for an unfired, very short production version, than please do not post as that is considered to be thread crapping.

    research what it is before commenting on what it is worth.:thumbup:

    This thread should be a sticky to illustrate "threadcrapping"! Geez...guys

    Beth...nice rifle! It's a rare rifle to begin with and since it's unfired...well that's what makes it a collector special. If it was mine and I was was fixin' to get rid of it, I'd toss it on Gunbroker...I'd bet by the time the auction ends that $1000 price is met and passed...

    i was only asking the guy why it was so much more then what i've seen them at. I've never heard of a .222 and asumed it was a typo. Now i know. But thread crapping... i've seen much worse on here.

    I have the box, its says 223 on the box but has the right serial #. The gun has bases on it but not rings. I do not have original paperwork.

    I'm interested. The .222 Rem. is a very well known and respected cartridge by me.
    I've used a Savage 340B since the mid 50's (when groundhogs were plentiful) and
    the flat shooting very accurate .222 has never let me down. I have several Rugers
    (Mini's and Levers) but none in .222. But you are just a tad high, maybe we could deal.
