That's pretty cool. Bill Ruger always said a General in charge of Army procurement once came by the Ruger booth at a industry fair. He picked up the Mini-14 prototype, looked it over, and said "if Ruger had come out with the Mini-14 earlier, it would have been the new US assault rifle, not the M16."

Very interesting. That was the one army that I had heard for years using the minis.
