It would help if you specified what type of information you want that isn't already on the sales pages for it.

It's nothing special. Takes Mini-30 mags. Isn't gonna set any records for accuracy, and the factory stock is garbage, but it'll hit where you aim it reliably. Would have been way more interesting if it took AK mags, but none of the manufacturers these days seem interested in going that route.

As with finding one, well... like any other gun these days, a bit of luck is probably going to be involved.

The CZ 572 in same caliber seems to be mentioned often as well. FYI as another potential option.

Myns shoots great. Shooting at 100 yards, 2 moa with the wolf stuff and 1 moa with fiocchi.

I got sub moa groups with the hornady sst stuff. I bought a couple hundred of those for hunting.

I have one in 7.62. While the stock ain't no Boyds stock, it's ok. I would call it sufficient. The Ruger Mini 14 mag has a nice snug fit. The barrel is threaded so you can use a can. The trigger is nice. What I don't like so much is the bolt. It's acceptable, but it could be smoother. I polished mine. The bolt shroud is plastic; I replaced mine with an aluminum after market one.

CZ makes 7.62x39 bolt action rifle that's supposed to be pretty good, for more money of course. Even so, for what you pay, the RAR is fine.

I too am looking for a Ruger Rifle. Which one, Im not sure yet. Ive had success in another unrelated gun purchase on Gunbroker.com.
I'll probably use them for the rifle purchase when I make a determination on which one better suits me.
