The only military force to use the Mini-14 (depending on whether you consider RUC to be a military force) is finally turning in its Mini-14s and going to either the G36, SA80A2, or M4. In other news, the Uzis used by the Bermuda Regiment will be replaced by 10.5" M16s.
If those are AC556's, I wonder if they know that the parts sets are currently selling for over $1,000? They could chop 'em up, sell the parts sets, replace their old AC556's with M4's and make about $200 - $300 on each "exchange".
Glad to see it's not just the US government that is good at wasting its citizens money.
