I DNK, I like my 10-round mags for the mini.

Yeah, 20 & 30 rounders are OK, but there's

something nice about a mag which doesn't

stick out of the bottom of the rifle.

I have an older law enforcement edition mini with the factory folding stock and bayonet lug and have shot a few others and as much as I try to like them they are not my favorite. They aren't terribly accurate out of the box but you can get it there by adding a strut and a few other things for an extra couple hundred. They sling brass 100yds unless you adjust the gas block. They are cool and fun to shoot but I feel like you could do better for the money.

If there is one thing I don't like about the Mini, it is the reassembly procedure. Take it from a guy who thinks the Ruger Mark III is no big deal.

The Ruger Mini is better balanced than any AR or AK type, and is the most fun to shoot of them all, in my opinion. But if you want the best alternative and have the funds for it, take the Tavor. You may be skeptical, and so was I, until I tried it.

A bullpup is a great alternative. It's not as accurate and reloads take a little longer, but they are so compact. I love my bullpup, MSAR Stg-556. I'd really like to purchase a Tavor also, the 9mm conversion kits are shipping now too.

Try getting a definitive arms 556 conversion AK, they are great. The conversion allows you to use AR15 mags

Have you ever held one? It feels cheap and not very solid, at least to me. Very interesting idea, but it needs to be ruggedized IMO.

The SU16 is a very rugged and reliable platform. Accurate too. One of the best alternatives to the AR, if you want to keep using AR mags.
