OHP- the Mini-14 different

Post by milgunsguy »

I'm seeking more details about the OHP model's history. The Ruger factory letter that I received in 1994 was no help. All it said was that the gun pictured here was a special order for an "Oklahoma state agency."

This rifle is one from a special order for 1300 guns placed by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol in 1979. The stock is unique. It features a red recoil pad, a side sling through a butt-stock cut-out like an M-1 Carbine, and an extra-long pull measurement not seen on another Ruger.

One sold on Gunbroker for $1620 earlier this year. Late in 2018 two other OHPs sold on Gunbroker, for $900 and $1700.

Nice Mini, the number made still stands at 1300 per the Red Eagle News Exchange. Pretty dang scarce rifle.

Great looking rifle. I agree about liking the carbine style stock. I would feel safe "riding the river" with that one at hand...
Some people sit on $.05 of knowledge like it is the treasure of Egypt. I will teach anyone $.10 worth just to prove a point...

Would love to get my hands on a OHP mini 14. Any idea if anyone has one out there who wants to sell or trade. I’ve been a Trooper for 16 years and would love to have one!!!

Hope you find one. Thanks for serving on the side of good. Being a Trooper is not an easy job.

If your OHP marked Mini-14 has a black folding synthetic stock then I would think the stock has been changed sometime during its history and therefore not original.
