With the current situation of not knowing where we are headed, I would get the standard barrel with no attachments if you can find one. Check Midway for factory 20 round mags.
Seriously? Looks just about like a M-14 I was issuedThe Mini 14 doesn't "look" like an "assault weapon", but it shoots the same ammo. Don't know if that might be trouble if there was a ban put in place.
Would they ban "assault weapon" ammo - and target .223 simply because the AR-15 uses it? Ignoring all the other guns that use it?
It's our crazy politicians and they have done far dumber things before.
You nailed it. Only difference is barrel length and the flash hider on the Tactical.looking at a new mini 14. like to know what is the real dif between the std.
mini and the "tactical" version. I can see the the tactical has a flash hider but otherwise? not a lot of dollar dif between the 2 versions so would like a bit of advice/info on this.
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!well, I kinda got an education here and and talking to a local dealer. "wish I had 100 of em,
could sell them all today!" that was my introduction to finding a good mini to buy, regardless
of model. and the prices....some twice the new price, and getting it! finally found 4 mo. old
581 tactical for $950 and glad to get it. did get 300+ rds of federal ammo with it so that softened the blow.
now I am a part of the mini 14 brotherhood owners I'm pleased to say.
