New ( to Me ) Mini-30

I had visions of an AR build, since I could not find an SR556. AK47 rifles were never a favorite, although I liked the cartridge. Ruger Mini 30 rifles were hard to come by and way outside my price range....until today!!!!

I picked up a mint 1989 model Mini-30 ( wood stock ) today with a 30 round Pro Mag and a 5 rounder, also has a BSA Red Dot scope mounted on a Piccatinny (sp) rail. Sling and hard case too. Also scored an additional 30 round Pro Mag by pure luck ( the last one he had in stock ) for $35 to go with it. All total it cost me just under $700. l am happy with ammo prices right now, here in Northern Maine it is not as sought after as some other calibers. I got 20 round Herters 122gr HP for $12 a box....LOL.

bwinters will become famous soon enough
Great pickup. you can never go wrong with a Ruger mini platform gun. Plus if worst comes to worst a mini with awood stock looks less military than an ak.

Mini 30's are awesome!

I picked mine up a couple of years ago and was disappointed that it gacked on imported steel cased ammo, but happy that it was a solid performer with brass cased (american eagle) ammo and is deadly accurate with 123 gr. reloads...
