I really would like the Ruger mini 30

I really would like the Ruger mini 30, the only problem is what I read
regarding an article about the " breaking firing pins " on the mini 30.

Replies are welcome,

So a search on this forum for the newer version. The Tactical Mini 30. It seems to have fixed many of the problems of the earlier versions. I would like to own one of the new models myself. There is an excellent review here somewhere.
