Ok, so can we get a Short List of the "good, the bad and the ugly" of the Mini-14 World? We know the 180 is out because the factory no longer supports it and there's no real aftermarket for it. So, where do we go from there. I personally don't care for the 1:7 barrel so what series does that leave out of the list? I'd like to use Ruger Factory scope rings, I know the Ranch Rifle has cuts for em', which other rifles have those cuts?
Just a little Buyer's List of which rifles would be worth getting into and which to avoid would be nice. Thanks.
