In 2015, I won a very nice Windham AR 5.56 with a mid-length gas system 16" bbl and Magpul grip/handguard. It's a very nice rifle, and shoots well. I sold it to a friend the next year to fund the purchase of a new 583 series Mini 14. I've always wanted a Mini since I first shot one in the early 1980s. I prefer wood and blued steel rifles, and also don't really like shooting a rifle/shotgun equipped with a pistol grip.
