A sawn-off shotgun may be a better choice then :P

I have always wanted one. Thought of trading an AR for one if the right trade presented itself. That and an AR10 need to call my place home.

And yeah, its an assault rifle according to the crazies. They only approve of bolt actions or single shots.

Would this be considered an assault rifle?

How about now?

If it is we both own one I love mine for hunting . I have some of the ten through thirty round mags really don't like the balance. Most of the time mine had the five rounds in it and a spare in my pockets
I put a zero power Vortex on mine sure helps old eyes and works great in this thicket.

I had one in my coyote killing days. I liked it a lot. I just used the 5 shot magazines. Take that little instant of more time to make the first shot work. I did know a guy from Montana who used one calling coyotes. He said if he missed the first it was fun seeing how many gears the coyote could grab while the next 29 were coming his way.

Now that's a funny thought. Very true that the more u shoot the faster they get.

My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.

Ai use my mini 30 more than my mini 14. That way ammo fits both of my sks and ak. Neither one is terribly accurate, but a blast to shoot. Have killed several deer and hogs with it.

I have a Mini 30 tactical on my toy list. I'm not a .223 fan.

I still have over 20,000 rounds of norinco steel case in cans. When aft first declared it ammo piercing, I had just received a shipment of 50,000+ rounds. I got the shipment in on Thursday and that Saturday they were at my store telling me I could not resell it.they gave me a couple choices, sell it to a police force, an armory, or keep it and self use it. So I kept it, then they declared it ok to sell. I bought it so cheap decided I will just blast away.

Definately not! I've always treasured my Mini 14 as a "truck" gun. It's an early model, all wood stock/forearm, no scope mount provision. With the OEM 5 round mag, it carries nicely and doesn't draw attention. That's why I've always been partial it. I personally never had a desire to own an AR type platform, but my oldest son just built me one chambered in 300 Blackout. All I can say is.......I don't know why it took me so long, I love it.

It is no magnification I can't find the peep and front sight with or without glasses. All my back sights are to close now for some reason. I can find those crosshairs just fine in that scope and work on pigs in this thicket.
Magnified scope on something busting through this thicket doesn't work well.

No magnification is 1x :)
I have the same problem with open sights, the back site is about 2" too close for me to focus on.. On one of my old cooey .22's I turned it around backward and surprisingly that worked out pretty good.. all it's for is for shooting pack rats though
