    186 series, blued, wood stock, 2 30 rd mags and a factory 20. Includes the scope mount. in at least 95% condition. What's it worth?

    I payed 450 for my series 180 a month ago, maybe a little high but the gun was mint not even a nick in the stock and if it's been fired at all I can't tell.

    No, sounds like you got a pretty good deal there. I've seen 'em on gunbroker for quite a bit more, just wanted to know. Part of me wants to sell mine to complete an AR upper build, and the other part of me wants me to be patient. I need to get my act together. :D

    Keep your mini--what is the thing WORTH or what could you GET in this market for it? Today, someone might toss down a little premium out of fear.

    Put the AR upper on a credit card--then you'll have 2 rifles that eat .223/5.56

    The mini has a little niche in our hearts. And now that Ruger has sold 20 rd mags to the citizen-at-large at last----we should grant amnesty to the little carbine. When AR's sold for TWICE what a mini did twenty years ago, and (many) couldn't compete in reliability under adverse conditions, the mini worked and soldiered on despite it's many limitations.

    I'm leaning that way. I like the Mini, it's just the paranoia taking over. I'm trying to not get sucked in. :(

    Get sucked in--REALLY sucked in--build the AR on credit AND keep your mini.
