I love my Mini 14! My trusty ranch rifle was the first firearm I purchased. I remember I bought it used for 500 dollers at the gun store right after I turned 18...I know I bought it used but I swear this rifle never had a shot fired out of it. It was still in the box and still had the packing grease or whatever it is on it. Maybe it was just the owner cutting a guy a break! However my Mini 14 is NOT a 5.56 it is a .222 Remington. Does anybody have any exp with these? Are they worth less or more? I am not looking to sell becuase well I have had this firearm for a number of years and it is by far one of my favorites. Also if I sold this to anyone my father would surely disown me as his son...(It is his favorite too) Thanks Everybody!
Character, in the long run, is the decisive factor in the life of an individual and of nations alike.
The main reason the Mini was chambered in .222, was for export. Some countries don't allow their civilians to own firearms chambered in a military round such as the 5.56. Hence the .222 chambering in the Mini-14...
