    Rarely do I get psyched...... But today.....YES!

    Went to a gun show looking for a Mini-14.

    Found ONE Mini 14.

    LNIB 1981 Manufacture Date (#182-75xxx)- I'm told it was fired once and then stored. Family found it after original owner died. (A common claim, I'm sure.) Anyway, It looks pristine.

    I know, can't post without a pix.

    Cool gun. I like the older Mini-14's better even though they claim the new ones have a stiffer barrel & shoot better, I still like the looks of the old ones. Heck I'm not gonna shoot hundreds of rounds at a time to notice a difference.

    I had a 1981 Mini with a folding stock, muzzle break, etc. Wish I'd never sold it. AWESOME GUN!
