since there is already a post here conserning the mini 14, ill use it insted of starting a new one.

as i understand it, ruger made the mini 14 in 72 for the police and military,
then offered it to the public i n 76, i have a mini 14 that has the
'MADE IN THE 200th YEAR OF AMERICAN LIBERTY' stamped on it, id like to think its special because of this, one of the first to be made for the public. but the serial# is -67800, surly ruger didnt make this many for the comersal market in the first year, So ruger must NOT have started with a new line of rifles and serial# for the public then ?
