thanks for the welcome & the compliments.

get ahold of one & shoot it if you can. they are great little guns imo. just realize you will have to "tinker" with it to get the best out of it. there is a wealth of info out there. and i love the way they look (i'm more a wood guy, but you can get a mini to look however you like)

i hope its ok to to do this, but here is a link to a thread on PU (not my fave site these day), but they had some listings for some great prices on new minis from CDNN. thse are some of the best prices i have seen recently for minis.

Question CDNN - Nice Looking (To me) Prices on Mini 14s - PerfectUnion Firearms Forum

Below is my 581 sitting next to my 1943 Standard Products M1 carbine. I think they match up pretty well....

Either way, both the black and the wood stocks are great looking and the Mini-14 is a fine weapon to own.

You know................Synthetics are OK but there is something about guns made out of wood and steel that just seems right. I guess I'm just "Old School"

2 nice looking rifles there.................
