mini 14...which one?
had a mini several years ago. couldn't hit the broadside of a barn with it. been thinking about trading my colt king cobra for one.
need to know if the 581 series is the one to haved or.....?:confused:
any tips on which series much appreciated.

Keep the Colt, they're not making any more. Mini's will always be available. Then buy a 581 series when you can afford it. The 581 series is my favorite. I've had three Mini's, an older 181 series and two 581's. Believe me, the new ones shoot way better out of the box.

The only reason to sell the Colt and buy a Mini is if you need a SHTF rifle right now. Otherwise, figure out a way to keep it if you can.

With my budget, the only way I can buy something is if I sell something else first.

Again, keep the Colt and get your Mini when you can. The newer 581 Series has a heavier barrel and should do you just fine in the accuracy department.

have had the colt for awhile, like to trade guns. as far as shtf gun have 3 of those. just want something different. seldom shoot any as I'm 73 and somewhat disabled. generally get something and personalize it $$$' fondle it for awhile and trade them off. been through a lot of guns that way. only hobby I have these days.
thanks for the advice
