Complete your Ruger® Mini-14® , Mini Thirty® or Ruger® AC-556 with this precision machined direct optic mount solution from Samson.
The Hannibal Rail is currently offered for 2008 and later Mini-14® or Mini Thirty®, or 2007 and earlier Mini-14® (in both black and natural gray). NOTE - It also fits on the Ruger AC-556. Refer to the Ruger® serial number lookup on their website if you are unsure what year your rifle was manufactured. It is very important that the correct combination of Hannibal Rail and barrel type is used. If during installation there are any fitment concerns, immediately stop and contact our customer service.
Choose 2008 and Later Mini-14® or Mini Thirty® (Black or Natural Gray) if your rifle has a factory flange barrel and a series number beginning with 580 and higher.Choose 2007 and Earlier Mini-14® ONLY (Black or Natural Gray) if your rifle has a factory straight pencil barrel and a series number beginning with 181 and higher, but not including 580 and higher.
Directly mount a micro red dot forward of the action without the need for a Picatinny rail clamp adapter. The integrated Picatinny rail on top of the Hannibal Rail is perfect for mounting any accessory your heart desires, and gives your rifle a more tactical look.
The included 2" Picatinny rail and QD swivel mount can be attached to the side of the Hannibal Rail for even more accessory mounting options.
The Hannibal Rail accepts red dot optics compatible with the following footprints:
- Trijicon RMR®
- Leupold DeltaPoint® Pro
- Vortex VENOM®
NOTE: With the large number of micro red dots currently available on the market, along with any that may come out in the near future, it is impossible to guarantee that every single one will be compatible with the Hannibal Rail. Whether it’s minor changes in the optic footprint, or differences in the optic mounting screw thread pitch, our customer service will do everything they can to answer any compatibility questions you may be having.

"Oops, my fault"
Location: Lincoln, NE

The overall look of the hannibal rail is impressive. Installation was as fool proof as they say and took about 20 min. However when I went to mount my optic, I found that my Eotech 552 fit, but due to the area allowed for mounting the small red-dot sights, my huge Eotech could not be mounted as far to the rear as I would have liked. I should have asked some questions about running a Eotech on this rail or gotten some dimensions before placing my order. I do not wish to detract from Samson as a company, or the Hannibal rail as a product. Choosing a smaller optic would solve my issue, but I love my 552.
Fits Good and Looks Awesome

I got my Hannibal Rail and installed it on my MIni-14 today. Everything is of very high quality and all the necessary hardware was included along with the allen keys and blue LockTite. Wish the included Pic Rail and QD mount were natural finish to match but that is a minor gripe. My Vortex Venom fit on perfectly and securely. Can't wait to get it zeroed and go to the range.
I love it when a plan comes together

Fits and looks great. Everything needed included. Directions were easy to follow and video was a nice addition. I had zero problems installing this. Goes great with the A-tm filer stock. Now my stainless mini 14 looks as good as when Hannibal or BA held off the bad guys. Thanks for building the parts and making my A-team tribute a reality.

Bought this to compliment my black A-TM stock and had a few issues with the install. Contacted Customer support and was very pleased with the level of professionalism, care, and attention my issue received. They went above and beyond to resolve the issue. It's all installed and, just like the stock, it fits like a glove. Highly recommend this rail.
Great bit of kit

Top notch machine work, all the rail space you need, perfect fit. Really transforms a mini 30 into useful talk condition rifle by allowing a solid light and red dot mounting platform that does not interfere with the action of the rifle or it’s balance.
