    I handled a Mini-30 at the gun shop about two months ago. Liked the feel of it, and was tempted, but it was too heavy for me, so I bought an M1 Carbine.

    I owned an older model Mini 30 it functioned well but wasn't that accurate. That was back in the day of the 5 round magazines. I sold it to fund another "project." I understand the newer model shoot pretty good.

    I owned one for a couple of years, I feel they are no more accurate than my AK 47 and probably not quite as reliable, also Mini 30 mags are not as cheap or as easily found. The mini 14 & 30 are good rifles but for their price there are better rifles in those calibers in my opinion.

    This, I put a few rounds through a mini 30, sweet gun, nimble enough but for the mag hassle, I would go with an AK.

    I too was looking at a Mini 30 a short while ago, but settled on a Saiga 7.62x39 instead (thanks to J&G's sale) and purchased more ammo to feed it with the money I saved.

    Thanks. So I guess that is why there is not much hype on the Mini 30. Will keep in mind for the future.

    I wish! The only thing in the garage right now is the broken Project car I have been procrastinating about finishing due to time and money. Both of which are in short supply.
