I love the Mini 14
A wonderful rifle got what it was designed to do. It’s not an AR, it’s not a bench shooter. It’s an easy carry semi auto that is very reliable. It’s a 3-4 moa rifle, with a bit of work, it is a 2.5 moa shooter.

Ruger bridged a gap with durability, accuracy not so much.I owned a mini-14 that I sold for a SA M1A NM .The need for wood and steel is better served in .308 . AR-15's are without doubt a better .223 platform than a mini-14.
I don’t see the AR as better.
I say that because these two carbines really aren’t comparable. I have quite a bit of experience with both platforms.

This topic always turns into a Mini vs AR deal. For what it is, the Mini is a better platform than the AR. It’s certainly more reliable. It’s an easier carrying carbine. It can shoot with stock folded.

It’s wood & steel with sex appeal
