June 12, 2008
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE-RGR) recently presented National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) Executive Director Chris W. Cox with a check for $125,000. The check represents a donation from the sale of a special edition Ruger® Mini-14 introduced at the 2008 SHOT Show to raise money for the NRA-ILA. The presentation was made by Ruger CEO Michael Fifer during the 137th NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Louisville, Kentucky May 16-18, 2008.
The special limited edition Mini-14 features a blued finish and 16-1/8" barrel in a black Hogue® Patented OverMolded™ stock. The grip cap of the stock features an NRA metal gold-tone logo. This special rifle is chambered for .223 Remington and ships with two 20-round magazines.
"Supporting the NRA-ILA in this year of election activity is important to all gun owners," said Ruger CEO Michael Fifer. "Ruger is pleased to provide a vehicle for NRA members and firearms owners to support the important activities of the NRA-ILA as they protect our Second Amendment rights. Since a portion of the sale of each NRA Mini-14 goes to the NRA-ILA, purchasers can share in a win-win situation by receiving a special edition rugged, reliable Ruger Mini-14 and contribute to the future of firearms ownership at the same time," he concluded.
Established in 1975, the NRA-ILA is the legislative arm of the National Rifle Association of America. It is committed to preserving the right of all law-abiding individuals to purchase, possess and use firearms for legitimate purposes as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
