I have a 580 series with a tapco T6 stock. After a strut, trigger, gas block work, and recoil buffers the mini is a better rifle than it was when I bought it.The mods were not very costly and it made a noticable diffrence. I dont have a problem with AR's. I think the mini is as accurate as a similar priced AR. My best group with handloads is 1.2''@100yrds. That was a 5 shot group. I dont think a 600 dollar AR could do much better.
