now I am a part of the mini 14 brotherhood owners I'm pleased to say.
Sounds like you got a good deal. I just sold my Mini 14 581 Tactical a few days ago for $1200. It had a $129 Redfield scope on it and 3 20-round Ruger mags. Judging by the lack of ammo out there (specifically .223 and 5.56), you got a hell of a deal. Enjoy your Mini!
Three old hunters were walking through the woods one day. The first looks over at the others and says, "Windy isn't it?" The second says, "I was sure it was Thursday." The third says, "Me too! The heck with hunting, let's go get a beer!"

IMO opinion, considering the craziness of things right now, you got a good deal....basically paid retail for it with an added bonus. I attended a big gun show last week and the lowest priced mini I saw was a $1600 197 series that was beat to crap.
