I picked up an interesting Ruger today, a stainless/synthetic Mini 14 Ranch in .222 Rem. I knew that Ruger had offered these in the past, but this one looks to be from 2016. Where these some sort of "special" order run through one of the distributors, and any ideas on a total number of rifles manufactured? Model number is 05823, and the catalog number is KM-14/59/222. Rifle looks to be in like new condition, complete with box and papers....I'll post a few pics tomorrow.

How uncommon are these rifles in .222?

I have the same rifle as well as several Hawkeye stainless rifles in 222. I heard the same story they were made for overseas dales.

Ruger told me @ 3000 made 1984-1987 with @ 10% stayed in the states. Which Ruger said some probably made it back to the states. Otherwise they were sold to countries where civilians couldn't own the same caliber as their military.

I have never seen 1 in stainless with polymer stock. I do own a blued with wood and stainless in wood, both NIB.

I'm interested to buy it

I have a recent one like this also. Unfired in the factory box like this one. I heard this latest run was made for a contract for export to France. A small percentage were held back and made available through Davidsons, for American collectors. Maybe 250 -300.
