Just as I had decided to get an m&p 15 when I found a mini 30 in a pawnshop here in town. They want about 675 for it, comes with 2 mags and a folding stock and they still have the original. I don't know much about the mini 30 but from what I've read they seem like a pretty decent gun. They claim its only been fired 6 times but I'm not too sure I believe it. It is aw a pawn shop afterall haha. Does this seem like a pretty good deal or do you guys think there's better out there? I've never fired one or even seen one in person till I found that one. I'm thinking the 30 would be better for me than the ar. Its will be used for hd and plinking, possibly hunting if I can find a place to go. I'm in the country but there's so many houses around these days I'm not sure about rifle hunting on my own land. I've heard mixed reviews on them but mostly good. Is this a deal I should jump all over? Any other opinions and info on the mini 30 or any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
