thanks, friend. i really do dig my mini, it is been a great little rifle & buckets of fun. i'm taking it to the range tomorrow to test out my new scope and red dot. and trust me, i understand money being tight. it has taken me a long time to get my mini set up like i wanted it (stock, scopes, sling, etc). its actually kinda fun to change it up a bit over a period of time. once you get it the way you want it, you kinda think "what now?"

my specter sling has been great. looks good & seems to function very well (though i am no expert in the use of a sling). that coyote tan will look great. i was actually torn between that color and the OD green & ended up settling on the OD.

and to all: i also know another great new site to discuss the mini 14. firearms talk is a great place, but it is always good to have options. the mini is definately a "tinker with it" kind of rifle & the more info, the better.

Default 181

I picked up a mini 14 181**** for $250 back in January. I got a few mags for it and an ATI folding stock. Then a budy of mine who had a mini 30 told me that he love the gun but did not like the recoil. long story short I we traded and now i own a mini 30 stainless 189****. with an ATI folding stock
