What kind of optic are your looking to get for it?


In all honesty the Mini 14 is a great rifle. It does what it is designed to do well enough. I love Mini 14's and enjoy shooting them a lot.

However, is it a good "alternative" to an AR? No. It is not as accurate or easy to "upgrade" "acessorise" or obtain/install replacement parts.

Its like asking if a Honda Civic is a good alternative to a Corvette. They are two different cars designed for different purposes. The mini 14 is a solid hunting/ranch gun. But the AR pretty much outclasses it.

Besides I thought you wanted an AR?

Get what you really want deep down. Its the only way you'll truly be happy with your purchase.
