    For me, the next will either be some form of AK, or some form of FAL or HK clone, in a para configuration.

    WHICH REMINDS ME - for you short-battle-gun folks, do you prefer side folders or underfolders? As I understand it, some underfolders may make things difficult if longer mags are used, but the side folders may be more rickety. Any advice would be most appreciated. (May I ask this here since, technically, a shorty AK, etc. might be considered a concealed carry gun? ?

    Best,
    Jon

    I tend to agree Jon re the ''rickety'' factor - side ones do seem less solid on lock up.

    My fave was on my long departed Stirling - it was an under which located out of the way nicely against latch lug under handguard but when pulled out and deployed became solid as all you'd want. It was short and I had a wood block I fitted on the extend it.

    That gun of course takes a side fitting 34 round mag on left so no probs. Damn I miss that gun. Gotta an old pic somewhere!

    You're not alone on missin' long-departed firearms. I have my own list, over which I still kick myself. On it are a Colt Python, an M1A SuperMatch, and a Winchester M1D I got in the lottery through the DCM.

I carried it a bit already and it's not that bad. I like it. Grows on you. Also, I now only have to pay $750 instead of the original $800 because mine didn't come with the LEM trigger I wanted. Now, I can put that money towards the 44 snub.
    slight thread hijacking....

    I've been quietly waiting to hear your review on the LEM trigger on the USP. Guess it was not in the cards. I have the HK P2000 S&W40 w/ LEM trigger and I think it is great. I like it so much that I am contemplating the USP fullsize 45 in LEM. I was just hoping to hear another review of the LEM trigger.

    .. and now back to your regular posts.

    I have an original Mini-14 with the factory folding stock and it's great. However, the small stud to which the stock fastens on the forearm is a bit fragile. Overall, unless the weapon is being used to deliver a buttstroke, I wouldn't think either configuration is unduly "rickety." I myself prefer the collapsible butt of the M4/CAR-15 because you can adjust it to different lengths. With a side folder or underfolder it's an "all or nothing" deal.

    Haven't even checked on those Bud - so, what is a Mini-14 fetching then these days?

    I still enjoy mine for fun - but maybe it's worth moving it on for something better.

    $600 - holy moly - that's incredible.

    I thought they were still usually around $450 or so. Wow!

    Wonder what mine would make - seeing as it has odd bits added and spare tapped holes from a scope mount that didn't really work! In other words - good gun.. but lost a few pretty points!

    Haha - well it still has some ''duty time'' left to go - if I feed it good homeloads or Fed Eagle etc it shoots pretty well (for a Mini!) and so will have some more shooting to do here yet.

    If and when I sell, it'll be without scope but will leave on handguard and muzzle brake. In fact have seriously thought of putting this back to iron sights anyways for further use - scope really does not do a whole lot for a gun like this.

    Chris, right after I sold my AR-15 (a fabled "green gun") in 1994 I bought a Mini-14 w/factory folding stock, USED for $850. This was a 1970's era gun, but in mint condition. That was but ONE of the guns I bought with what was paid to me for that AR-15 with no welded sear block. I picked up four more besides that one.

    Sheesh - $850 used. Tho I guess folders did command more. If 70's then maybe it was similar vintage to my original.

    IIRC my present one is a 185-xxxxx whereas my first (and favorite, back in UK) was a 182-xxxx or 181-xxxxx and had the integral hider on muzzle.

    Musta been one heck of an AR you parted with!!
