    6.5 with AI mags, tempting.

    I’m thinking I’m gonna have to let me 700 go for the Ranch with AR mags.

    I wonder if I will be able to convert my Ranch Rifle to take AR mags now, and how well they fit. I had a few Mossberg MVPs and hated how loose and shaky the mags were. Mossberg said they had to do that to make the mags feed smoothly, But my OCD wouldn't let me accept that, and got rid of them all.

    I really like that Ranch Rifle. I don't know the price and I'm curious what kind of glass would you put on it?

    If I swapped my 700 for it I’d just put the glass I have in the 700 on it. My Vortex Viper HS LR.

    I’m too curious about stock transferability from current models to this. As there are manufacturers out there making chassis’s for the American that I’d consider if swapping to the American for my bolt gun.

    Easy yes.

    Already on your rifle at a lower price?

    Also the American line of Rugers has been proven to be as accurate out of the box as Remingtons.

    I admit to keeping precious little in the rifle category that was finished for reasonable prices, but just to get to the magazines was drop in for the Magpul stock.

    Prices...

    RUGER AMERICAN RANCH 5.56 NATO 16.12" THREADED BBL FDE
    MSRP: $529.00

    www.galleryofguns.com - Gun Genie - Davidson's most popular and powerful search engine to find and buy guns at galleryofguns.com
    it looks like my peers are going as low as $422.40. My price would be close at $415. No surprise, there is a line for these so it may take a few days/week to see it ship if someone wants me to pluck one from the factory.

    Let me see about my remmy 700 going to market first. Then I’ll be hitting you up.

    Very nice, they finally got smart and offered a 5.56/.223 chamber also. If this was available last summer I might have bought one.

    The Ranch Rifle was always 556/223 chambered.

    I actually like shooting my Ranch Rifle more than my Gunsite Scout Rifle in 556, but I like the round capacity of my GSR. I might have to rethink my whole inventory now.o_O

    Aren't the older Mini 14 rifles 223 only and then 556 more recently? Maybe they weren't called Ranch until later? Just curious, I had a Ranch version of the Mini 30 (different scope mounts) decades ago.

    Either way, I applaud Ruger for making various weps that accept AR15 and Glock mags. Whatever portion of the market they don't capture with Ruger magazines, I believe they with pick up in increased weapon sales.

    Sorry, the AMERICAN Ranch Rifle was always 223/ 556. I believe you are right about the mini 14. The later model ranch rifles were stamped 556, but Ruger always said you could shoot 556 in any mini except the Target model.

    I would love some higher capacity magazines for mine! The 77/357 especially.

    Walked into Sportsmans today, and they had the AR15 mag fed Ranch in 556.

    Naturally I put it on layaway.
