Mini 14 continues to impress.
Working here on a friends mini-14, was bough used and we shot it this weekend. Now cleaning it and it's pretty clear the prior owner had no idea as to how to do anything other than remove the trigger group. It's been a morning of getting solid, crusted carbon out of everywhere on the gun.
Very impressed it was still working. I would not advise treating any gun this way but very impressed that it still functioned.
