Default New mini owner. (Pictures)

Howdy, I picked up this mini 14 for a steal... $400 for the gun, 1100rds, 14 mags (9 30rd, 2 40rd, 2 5rd, and 1 20rd), a gun case and 2 steel ammo cans.

There is a catch... I bought the rifle off my father. The history of this rifle is this. My father gave this rifle to my cousin. He was my best friend, and we shot his rifle (this gun) and my Ak all the time. He ended up dieing in a plane crash several years ago. My father received the rifle back and locked it up in the gun safe for the past 5 years.

The weekend after Christmas I talked him into selling it to me. Since then I have put a new stock on, refinished the bluing, and added a front grip and light. Sadly I haven't had a chance to shoot it again, but I'm very eager to get to the range and try out the new stock.

Enough talk time for some pictures.




10min after getting home with the gun. I tore it down for a good thorough cleaning.

After (I'll have to get more pictures)

Yeah it was a steal... I offered him $550 for just the rifle and a few mags. He told me he would take $300 for everything. Then we realized how much ammo was there, so I offered him another $100 for the ammo.

So i was my local gunshop yesterday they had 2 ruger mini 14s I'n stock. I bought one and when i got home i noticed a scratch on the top of the gun by the barrel. So i went back to the store to see what they could do for me. They told me that all the ruger mini 14s they had I'n had some sort of scratch on them so it was an as I's price they couldn't do anything for me. So i returned it. I paid 829 for it. It was the tactical style with the scope mounts on top. It was brand new out of the box. Should i have kept it?

Yes you should have a scratch can be fixed.
