The Ruger XGI is a semi-automatic rifle chambered in .308 Winchester or .243 Winchester. The XGI's function and aesthetics are influenced by the Ruger Mini-14, only sized up to the larger, more powerful .308 and .243 calibers. Although it was advertised in 1984–1985, it never entered production due to unresolved mechanical and production issues.
