    Did a bunch of up drills (dry fire) with this weapon today. My work gun is similarly outfitted with a LPVO but of much lesser quality. Muscle memory is close enough to translate :)

    Our local sheriff’s office (A good-sized agency, authorized at around 1,400 sworn) has been running the Mini-14 in patrol cars since the 1980’s. My office has used them since the mid-1990’s. Obviously the terminal effects on the suspect would be identical with both the AR-15 and Mini-14 in 5.56/.223, but the more ergonomic and versatile AR finally won out for us over the trusty old standby.

    We ended up trading the Mini’s in to the Arizona-based dealer who brokered the AR purchase and we were allowed to individually buy the trade ins back at their cost. I picked up this unissued and unfired (by us) Mini for right around $400 bucks OTD.

    1812C383-CC40-4F73-B8E9-B3A80CA3D6FF.jpeg 3FF5505B-48B1-4FCB-918B-C1C241319932.jpeg 66523F71-DC75-44F6-BC69-7DD4A8B95C1D.jpeg BD2BC163-ADF9-4C66-9BE9-208C9CBE295C.jpeg

    It goes nicely with the 1990’s era .223 Ranch Rifle and 7.62x39 Mini-30 I also have. :thumbup:

    Stay safe.

    The AR15 is awesome but I have always liked the Mini-14 as well. Mine have always been reliable and decently accurate. The 580 series shoots much better than my 180 series. I have never felt under armed with a Mini-14. RM - you got a great deal!

    Looks great! Have you had a chance to shoot it yet?
    If not, let us know if it shoots as nicely as it looks. :thumbup:

    Stay safe.

    I will this coming weekend. Excited about the Rise Armament drop in trigger too.

    The bottom pick is my old Ruger AR556.

    Here's one I built as a MSR take on 1894 30/30 it's a 16" Faxon barreled 350 Legend, the scope is an older Leupold VX Hog 1-4X and the suppressor is a Torrent T9K using a Griffin Plan A taper lock/ minimalist brake. It ended up at a svelt 7.5# with the can and empty mag. 20220324_150458.jpg

    Set up to shoot in NRA AR Tactical matches, but with an Atlas bipod and no-eared rear bag

    20221024_193122.jpg I think I'm close to being done with this one. Switched from a CT 1-5X series 3 to the US Optics TS 8X 1-8X and switched to MBUS Pro offsets. About the only thing I'm even considering is a dedicated can.

    B&T has a 5.56 can that's really affordable that I'm heavily considering that looks real nice. Mounts on standard A2 flash hiders too.

    It's already got a Griffin Paladin taper mount brake on it. I was thinking of getting a YHM Turbo or Turbo k and putting a Griffin Plan A adapter in it.
    Probably offset the cost selling the YHM QD set up.

    I really am impressed by the variety of the GA mounts.

    It's not why I bought a GA can, but in hindsight I'm real glad I did. I can put my bushwhacker on everything
