I've had a Mini-14 for 30 years. The gun is not the most accurate you can buy in .223 - especially the old ones like mine. It's a fun gun to shoot, but I have a Barrett REC7 and it does everything the Mini can do and was 1MOA or less in accuracy out of the box using Federal .223 55 grain ammunition. In today's .223 market, you wouldn't buy a Mini-14 for accuracy, you'd buy it as a reasonably priced .223 and that's about it as most of the good quality ARs will outshoot it all day.

Default Fine-tuning my mini

Thanks hawkguy your right I took it straight out of the. Box and started shooting it . I have recenly broke it down and cleaned it good . I have had success since I have put several hundred rounds thru it it will now reliably shoot all grains of brass just not steel and I'm fixin to get some real ammo and see what kind of accuracy I can get I'm also going to work in the "slop" in the gas chamber for more gas pressure it still just spits the shell out about 3 or 4 feet. Thanks again
