I have a LE-issue SS mini with the SS factory folding. It is great to shoot and gets lots of attention too.

If you want to save a little money and have a gun that is just as fun to shoot as a Mini 14,and is more accurate look at a Saiga 223
Check out utube video for 300 yard shots with a mini

i actually like mini 14's i think they are cool and shoot well but my dad had a ruger ranch rifle and it would heat up after alot of shooting and it would get inaccurate best to get the tactical one because of the synthetic stock warps less after heating up

I witnessed my father take down many deer with his mini 14 at great distance. Accuracy is great with this rifle.
