I just purchased a Ruger mini 14 / 223 / stainless ranch rifle.==== I am not trying to compare this gun to an AR / or any other gun, but just want some honest input from people who own and shoot this gun. So far i have shot around 200 rounds through it. Seems fairly accurate for open sights, and has seemed to perform very well. I have a chance to trade a Glock that a local gun shop is selling, leo trade ins, that i can get for about 375 out the door, for a mini 14 stainless target rifle, from what I read there is a lot of difference in the accuracy of these two guns....guess I am getting off the original thread a little, as I am on my way to buy the glock and make he trade. But would like to hear from some mini 14 owners or previous owners on the pros n cons of this rifle.
