Cool beans. A Mini-14 forum. Let's see some pics. Here are 2 of my Mini's. A new stainless mounted with an Aimpoint CompML3, 2MOA dot and Hogue overmolded stock.
And an older blued standard in a Ruger synthetic stock (that came off the stainless above).
I also have a GB model, but it is not CA legal, so lives at my alternate address in a friendly state.
I sold both of these SKS's when I got my Saiga.
