I bought another Mini-14 a few days ago.

I had one before. old thread
But I had a bit of a financial crisis. A bunch of guitars and several guns had to be sold off to pay rent and buy groceries. My old Mini-14 went away during that time.

The new one, 581-xxxxx, has a blued barrel and wood stock. It came with a five round magazine. I still have a 10-round and five 20-rounders I've been saving because I figured I'd get anther Mini-14 eventually.


New rifle.


My Ruger "collection."
The Mini-14 looks more sinister with the 20-round mag protruding.
Shown with my LCP "Coyote Special" .380 ACP.


With an inexpensive Konus scope I had lying around and a sling I borrowed off another rifle, it looks more like its fixin' to go huntin'.

Looks good in the winder of my pickup.
Yes, I actually have a gun rack in the back window.
You might be a redneck if . . .


I hope to get to the range today to see if it actually shoots.

I think the 20 round mags in a Mini creates the perfect profile for the gun. I love the way it looks.

Every time I've questioned selling my Mini, I just can't seem to find a rifle I'd like better in the same POU.

Oh, I agree.
The flush-fitting 5-rounder is nice when shooting from the bench, or when disguised as a mild-mannered hunting rifle.
Otherwise, I prefer the 20s.
