therewolf, ALL Mini's are compatible with 5.56mm ammo except for the Target model, which would not be a viable choice compared to an SKS or non target Mini for SHTF or a truck gun.

I used to be frustrated with removal / inserting the bolt as well until I started removing the bolt lock/ cover plate first. Now it's a breeze.

I don't know anything about the bolt release, but have used the trigger. I really like the Timney drop in trigger, but would never buy the straight trigger again over a curved one. It looks cool, but...

Another good "cheap" red dot is the Primary Arms Micro. Around $90 and tons of good reviews. I would not waste my money on anything cheaper.

Bolt action .223's are generally just that, chambered for .223. Firing a 5.56mm round in your Axis is not gonna blow up your rifle, but the slightly higher pressure of the 5.56 and more pressure...

+1 on the CMMG stainless unit. I sold my CMMG thinking I had to have a dedicated .22 upper, it was no more reliable than the slip in unit and if it was any more accurate I couldn't tell. I had $600...

You'll love your Marlin, go to Marlinowners.com and there are some tips to smooth it up. My new "Remlin" 1895 CBA was a little stiff and trigger pull was not bad at 6 lbs. After smoothing it up the...

Yeah, that one had me scratching my head too. Why would cleaning them reduce their life ? What reduces a magazine's life is not cleaning them, or even leaving them loaded for years, but loading and...

My AR's are more accurate when shot from a bench rest. But shot off hand and trying to get hits on multiple targets rapidly the Mini does just as well. When out in the field you aren't gonna have the...

Not a bad price at all. I'm on the lookout for a Mini-30 or Mini 6.8 to go with my 5.56 SS. I haven't seen any for sale here, so don't know if the prices for those calibers run the same.

Jon, I haven't ordered a sight yet so will look again at the XS. I have an XS ghost ring with rail on my 870 tactical, it's o.k. but a bit small.
