Very nice. My friend has one just like it. He threaded the barrel and has a sound suppressor. Makes .223 sound like .22.
That's impossible!! Everyone here knows that you can't hit a barn at 20 paces with a Mini-14!!!!!
Nice looking rifle! Your next move should be to stock up on plenty of 20 round FACTORY mags while they are available.
I like my Mini-14 also. Has an accu-strut attached, which was a 10 minute mod.
I have really been kicking around the idea of picking one up!
Love the Mini,.....wish I would have kept mine.
I have an older stainless Mini-30 in 7.62x39 that I bedded into a B&C synthetic stock. Its arrival forced a number of hapless, anemic AR-15s onto the used gun rack.
Very accurate with Remington and Winchester softpoint, and Prvi Partisan roundnose, ammo.
I can't think of a better all-around backcountry utility rifle, and it held its own a couple of times during post-hurricane mini-SHTF scenarios, too (no shots fired, but intimidation effect aplenty on organized gangs of looters crusing around in trucks).
I'm waiting for a double handful of the new Ruger factory 20-round mags that I have on back order from Ruger.
I plan to add a Ruger Min-6.8 to the gun safe too, once Ruger gets their heads out of their butts and makes a 20-round mag for it....
Smart, in my opinion.
Many folks want the largest mags available (mostly 30-rounders of course), but for the Mini especially, I prefer 20-round mags.
That old M-14 pattern magwell leaves so much of the mag just hanging in space below the rifle with no real support. I feel a lot better about the shorter 20-round mags.
I wish I could love my old stainless Ranch Rifle, especially now that Ruger is selling the factory mags. Mine is one of the inaccurate jam-o-matic Minis.
I hold on to it year after year thinking I'll pay someone to accurize it for me and bed it into a Choate synthetic stock. Maybe this year.
Mine is a twin of yours...........It is my Sport Utility Rifle............You did good !!!
Congrats. I have a new 580 series tactical. with the Strikeforce folder and flash supressor. Shoots real tight groups. Better than my AR's.
Very nice Mini !
