Default My new Mini 14

Just got it this weekend. It's the Davidson special run with laminated stock. Still trying to decide whether to scope it, red dot, etc., as it will probably be just for fun and defense. The photos are from my phone so sorry for the poor quality.

Hey Missleman, I've got her twin sister! I also have her 10-22 cousin with the International stock in gray laminate. I just love that stock. Anytime that she is lonely, you can send her here, I will take good care of her.

Congrats on your new Mini. I put a Burris Timberline 2X7X26 scope on mine. Nice lightweight compact scope that works well with the new Minis. They are on Optics Planet for about $165.00 now. For the size and money, I have been very pleased. Also have same scope on a CZ carbine. They fit smaller rifles nicely.

Nice looking rifle. How heavy is it? I have the stainless one that came with the synthetic stock. Looked like this when I bought it but changed the stock to suit my needs. still have the original if I change my mind

I haven't weighed it, but just by feel I think it's probably about a pound+ heavier than the synthetic stocked version--that would make sense given the laminated stock. I think my plan for this one is to make it more of an accuracy rifle, add a mo-rod, 3x9 scope, and maybe a bi-pod--perhaps a trigger job and then see how it performs.
