I have not seen a mini 14/30 in 3 months. I don't know about QC, not many complaints here.
you should stock up on those evil 10/22s we are trying to ban here. I heard they were specifically designed to kill fluffy white puppies and special needs children.I got one in March at Big 5 Sports, but I apparently got lucky as they have only seen a handful all year.
It's been flawless. No FTF, FTE, etc. and it shoots great.
Their distributor told them to not expect ongoing, significant quantities until August.
Best thing is to get on waiting lists at a few different shops.
I put myself on the list for a stainless Mini 14. As long as I get it by December, I'm happy. Minis may well be banned here in California as of January.
Hey Texan.. is your Big 5 actually displaying them? Ours down here havent been putting out any semi autos on their shelvesThings are looking up with Ruger y'all.
Got a call from Big 5 in Daly City, CA today. They got several Ruger units today including wood stock Minis and 10/22 models. They never took me off the list when my first Mini came in, so I could've gotten another one today. That wouldn't be right though as others have been patiently waiting and I already got the wood stock one I reserved.
I am on the list for a stainless Mini 14 and a stainless 10/22. Looks like the wait may not be as long as I'd expected.
