    I'd like to play with a Mini-14. My dad had one when I was a kid, and it was a jam-o-matic. He ended up trading it for some 7.62x39 ammo. I never got to shoot it...
     
  8. Wierd I cant remember mine ever jaming up on me I find it to be a great rifle but maby thats just me ? who knows. Im a stickler about keeping my guns clean i clean them every night after I have been out shooting its what my daddy tought me and he has a collection that makes mine look like childs play.

    Don't have one myself... But Gander Mountain in Forest Lake, MN got a shipment of surplus Mini-30s not too long ago. They are old police rifles (Indiana State Patrol I think from the tags), flash hiders, recoil pads, M-16 style sights, etc on fixed wood stocks for $729. They had one SWEET folding stock, which of course is $999. I want one so bad, but I won't buy Ruger (10-rnd mag BS).

    I wasn't saying they were all like that. Like I said, my dad's was that way, but I never got to shoot it. I've heard a lot of good things from other people, and I really love my Ruger 10/22. I'm guessing he just got a bad apple...

    I had problems with mine feeding from aftermarket hicap mags. But I have had alot of luck with the promag 20rnd poly ones (yeah I was suprised too) since then mine has been a real work horse. Ill get some pics posted as soon as my camera comes back from my sisters vaction

    I've never had a 30 rounder be fully functional. I stick with 20's, too.

    I've got some 20's, 30's anf 40's, and of all of them, only 1 of the 40's tends to mis-feed. The rest are perfect after some lip adjustments.

    the only 30 rounders i ever had work well were eagle poly mags. they fed and functioned 100% after 1 or 2 break in fills. other than that most everything was junk.

    Thanks, autosurgeon. Thats the way I found it in a pawnshop. The stock was what made the sale.

    SW, my 3 30's are Madsen's If I remember correctly. All steel. Did take some lip tweaks to get'm right. Wish it would take my AR mags, that would be sweet.
