Davidson's Catalog Item Detail

This is what I paid for the blued model, but they are not showing the same model in Stainless any longer. When I bought both of mine they only had a couple left in Stainless. It appears they've sold them out, and have not restocked yet. They shouldn't be too hard to locate, they sell a ton of them.

Good to know thanks.

I think the mini is a good little rifle and it does what it is intended to do. A little tuning helps. It's not supposed to be a tack driver but it out performs in most all other areas. Very robust and reliable at most all times. Really don't mind being a tad dirty either. They still do fly off the shelf, regardless of price, in the sporting good stores here in California. Most of the newer ones can keep it in 2" groups at 100 yards and some out of the box can even do constantly smaller groups by my observation.
A good piece of glass is like a fine piece of ass. There is no known substitute known to man, and neither are cheap.

Minis are great rifles for what you use them for. I wouldn't take one to a battle field due to accuracy but they are great gun around a ranch or even home protection...I have a mini and a really nice rra and I use the in two diffrent way.....
