    so i was looking at mini-14's and my only requirement is that i get a model that is under $700 and that it has a 20 rd magazine and it needs to have a black synthetic stock.
    any suggestions on what model is the best one for me?

    i like this as an alternative to a thousand dollar AR-15, I am quite low on $$ at the moment...

    so any suggestions?
    and, any suggestions on what i should get for a scope? i want it to be a four power.
    also, any other accesories that i should get for it like a laser or a flashlight of some sort?

    thanks!

    If money's tight, get a used one for $350-$450. Buy several Ruger mags from Ruger, and you're set. You can even get a scope for it and stay within you budget.

    If you get a used one, avoid pre-580 series guns. They are hit or miss on accuracy, with a whole lot of miss (my 188-series shot a best-ever 100-yard group of 5.5 inches). The 580-series guns are much more consistent.
