Default Can anyone help me determine the build date?

Hello, the serial number on my mini-thirty is 189-55008. I am curious if anyone here knows how or where to find the information on this.

You're welcome. For any other Ruger fans- go to the Ruger Website, under customer service tab, information, select rifle pistol, revolver, or shotgun, then find your model, and the build date SN ranges are posted there.
