Hey Doc, how is the accuracy on your mini? I had an older one and sold it a few years ago. I couldn't get the second shot, or third to be anywhere near where I wanted it to be. Oh, and a couple months later I stumbled across how to accurize a mini, DOH! Should have thought of using the interwebz to research before I sold.

Congratulations on the new Mini. I love mine and am on my third one.

Mine will arrive on this Friday and I plan on doing a review. In the meantime, here's a very interesting review of the Mini-14 tactical that is very, very enjoyable to watch, by "nutnfancy"...

Congrats on the new Ruger. I have the same exact tactical model on layaway. I can't wait to pick mine up when I get settled in...

Would love to see a range report!

congrats on new mini!! I just received mine(mini 14 tactical) yesterday and will take out to the range tomorrow. By the way thats a pretty good price for the mini but i found mine online at BudsGunShop.com for $668+$7 of insurance w/ free insurance... I strongly recommend them for their low prices and professional service.
