ATI Ruger Mini 14 Strikeforce Stock

A Warm Spring Greeting to all you Bloggers and Shooters

The subject that we are going to discuss today, is (in part) a subject that I don’t have much experience with. That is to say, the Ruger Mini 14, or the Ruger Mini 30 Rifles. Most of my fellow shooters have owned or still own either a Mini 14 or a Mini 30 rifle, yet I have never had the inclination to purchase one, even despite the fact that I really like the 7.62 x 39 cartridge. (Not much of a fan for the 5.56 cartridge though!!!) I suppose if I wanted to get a short carbine rifle, (and I Love Short Carbines!) I would just buy an AK of some description, (and I Love AK’s) Now this is not to say that there is anything wrong with a Ruger Mini 14 or Mini 30 rifle…………………….No, No, No! it’s just that “I” would rather have an AK than a Ruger Mini 14 or Mini 30 rifle,………………… purely personal choice!……………….that and the fact that an AK is a lot easier to strip down and clean!!!

So, after letting you know that I have never owned, or shot a Mini 14 or a Mini 30 rifle, lets move on to something that I do know something about, the ATI Ruger Mini 14/Mini 30 Strikeforce Stock Combo ~ Y71. As with the other Strikeforce Stocks that ATI produce, this one also is a superbly comfortable stock, platform to shoot your Ruger Mini 14 or Mini 30 Rifle from. After fitting one of these Strikeforce Stock Combo’s to your Ruger Rifle, (and they will fit either the Mini 14 or the Mini 30) you would not want to change back to the original wooden stock again……………….(They are that good) Now don’t get me wrong here, I am not a “Wood” hater on rifles. I have owned many Wooden Stocked rifles in the past and absolutely loved them. One of my favorites was a old Lee Enfield No.1 Mk3 Rifle that had, had a Parker Hale Conversion done to it many years ago. I just loved the look of it because it reminded me of the African Safari’s of the 1930′s era. A beautiful looking rifle I thought. (but that is another story to be told later on)

Getting back to the Strikeforce Stocks again………………The thing I like about them is that they are really light and very comfortable to hold, and also they have the ability (through modern technology) to be able to soak up more of the recoil that a wooden stock, which is a really, really good thing to my way of thinking. A Comfortable Rifle means – more shots on target, less flinch, quicker follow-up shots, no sore shoulder at the end of the day, (more Zombies down) smiles all round!!! Having a Side-Folding and a Sliding Adjustable Stock (Non-Adjustable & Non-Side Folding for New Zealand “A” Cat Firearms License holders) is just the “Bee’s Knee’s” for versatility and compactness, making this a Must Have accessory for all you Ruger Fans, Preppers, Survivalists and Shooters who like compact, tactical looking rifles out there.

Just Look at how much “Bang” you get for your “Buck” -

1) The ATI Strikeforce Combo comes with a Side-Folding & Adjustable, Sliding Stock. (Non-Folding & Non-Sliding Stock for New Zealand) that is a lighter weight that the original wooden stock and features a Scorpion Razorback, superb Non-Slip, Removable Recoil Pad that really takes the “Punch” out of “Judy” making these rifles a pleasure to shoot.

2) A fully adjustable Cheek Rest to accommodate both iron sights and optical sight eye levels with a 3M “Soft Touch” cheek rest pad that takes any “Cheek Bite” Recoil away making your shooting experience a very comfortable one.

3) An Ergonomic, Sure-Grip Textured, Pistol Grip with a Scorpion Razorback Recoil Pad down the back to soak up more of the recoil as well as having a Non-Slip, Sure-Grip even in adverse wet or hot, sweaty conditions.

4) A Top Strikeforce Ventilated Forend that comes with a 7 inch Weaver Rail that mounts up on top of the forend so that you can attach a scope or a Red Dot Sight, plus 3 x 2 inch Weaver Rails that mount up on either side so that you can mount your Laser and Flashlight to, and the 3rd rail mounts up underneath to attach your bipod onto.

5) 6 x Sling Swivel Studs to clip your Single Point, or your 2 Point or your universal sling to,……………so many ways to carry your Ruger!!!

6) And last but not least – 3 different colour options to match your mission terrain requirements and your personalized uniform cammo requirements, check them out on our website.

So if you own a Ruger Mini 14 or a Ruger Mini 30 rifle (or both) I would give serious consideration to the ATI Tactical Strikeforce Stock Combo……………Your Ruger will Love you for it!

Happy Hunting……………………………………..The “Quartermaster”
