    Hello all,

    Can anyone give some input on a Mini 14 196 series? A local guy has a used one for sale with 1000 rounds shot through it. Are they reliable and what would be a fair price? I am basically looking for a cheap .223 semi. Thanks for any help!

    What kinda shape is it in?
    196 series I think is the same as the 180s
    Over there at this time (Obama on the way)you probably have to pay around $450 or so,I dunno what guns are going for over there,but that seems about right for what you are describing.
    If you HAVE to have it maybe $550.
    (I don't need one so about $400 would be top dollar for me)
    Someone who knows more than me will tell ya something else ;)

    probably the most reliable semi out there. they will keep shooting even if neglected. prices vary from region to region but if it is a ranch model in good shape i'd say $350.00 to $450.00 would be fair.
