Default Mini 14 184 series?

I was just out and saw what appears to be a rather old mini. Its pretty low in price and i am considering getting it. i had it put away for a bit. The serial numbers start in 184-49*** and i want to learn more about this gun. what can anyone tell me about this? The price is 449.95. Good or not.

IMO not good but fairly fair --
I really don't want one over a 180 series myself - Again, IMO

Some of the 183-186 series were good shooters, better than the 190 series because of better tooling and better metal and quality of the guns were better. Not a bad deal, I used to hear a lot of good things about the 181-186 guns.
