196-5xxxx series

I have a Mini 14 that starts with the serial number 196-5xxxx. Is this a rifle that can shoot both the .223 and 5.56mm ammo or is it just a .223? Also what year is this made? This rifle shoots awesome and I would like to play with it a lot more. I am taking it to the range tommorrow.

5.56 and .223 are both acceptable in your rifle.

As to your other question, scroll down to post 11 in this thread.
