There have been several discussions regarding the Mini-14; however, when I did my search I found most of them had be moved to the trash bin. I moved several back so you could read them ...

Maybe these will give you some insight ...

Not a bad little shooter/truck gun. Only ruger factory mags work in them reliably in my opinion.
True!! Have not found an aftermarket that was reliable all the time ... especially when you go past 20 rounds ..

Skip it, there are many better options. I had one and don't care to have another. An AR would be way better. A SKS is even better IMO

i had the factory select fire version, the AC556. Ran great, I mean great. Used Eagle 35 rd mags well. I kept a Ceiner .22 kit in mine most of the time.

I have had AR's jam...my AC ran superlatively...that said...I do still like AR's too... before I get jumped ;)

as others have said, the AR is more accurate...but the mini will still hit what the round was designed for... ;)

I have owned 2 Mini-14 rifles. I would never own another one. I have never seen a factory Mini-14 that would not walk groups when fired in rapid fire. Save your money and buy a Rock River AR-15-A2 national Match. You will see how accurate a 5.56x45mm can be.

I have one. Wouldn't recommend it for competition shooting but it gets the job done for it's designed purpose as a "ranch rifle." Accurate enough for plinking or varmints which is about all I would use a .223 for anyway.

I have one, and have no reason to get any other 223 rifle. It is reliable, accurate, and rugged. No scope or gadgets, just a simple throw in the truck and go rifle. Works for my lifestyle.

I had a Ranch Rifle but sold it a few years back, nothing wrong with it and was fun to shoot...just realized I shot my ARs more. Figured I might as well sell it to someone who would put it to good use.
