I love my 580 series mini 14. Of course, I did grow up watching the A-Team! Its plenty accurate for its use, and its been 100% reliable out of the box. Its a $599 base model and I did have a "tactical" model, which was cool. Sold it to a friend and when I saw this one I had to have it. It even has a really nice wood stock. I have an AR15 and I love it, but my mini 14 gives me warmer, fuzzier feelings. Just my 2cents...
