For what a Mini costs today you can buy a entry level AR, a million more accessories, GI surplus 30 round mags for $10 or far better PMags for $14. AND far more accurate.
I have owned 2 Mini's and they weren't very accurate at all. I wouldn't have enough faith with one to shoot at a deer past 100 yards for fear of a poorly placed shot.
They are over priced IMO.
Hugger...hug this for a test....
and to your benefit, I am getting pretty old.
You look at my junk line-up of Mini-14's
and you pick which one.
We measure off 200yds, you say go, I shoot at you.
Willing to take that gamble, or you say it would
just be a fluke...if I hit you ????
No malice intended.....but what 'hands-on'
experience do you 'personally' have ?

In one word....? Experience ? Hearsay ?
Overheard ? Guessing ? Military ? Forums ?
All my AR's kick the Mini-14's ass......
They are constantly accurate beyond 1000 yds,
and the mags only cost me $5......
I get so sick of the 'expertise'.......
Guilty, thread drift to the max !
