Got it at a gunshow.. Hoping I didnt over pay @ $400
$300-350ish, maybe more if its a good scope. I had a mini14 for a couple weeks before trading it, was biggest POS I owned, Ruger high cap prices were sky high, non ruger mags didnt feed worth a damn, and the groupings sucked, I shoot tighter groups out of my SAR1 with Wolf.
Mini14s are totally hit or miss it seems like.
it's a good price, but i don't like mini14s
that scope has seen better days hasn't it
I've heard about people who have had great luck with them but I think the majority of reviews I hear are negative, if I'de known then what I know now I never would of got it, Mine couldnt hit the side of a barn if I shot it from inside.
Pretty sure that "ranch" model with the factory stock goes for about $600-$700 new.
They've gone up then, was like 10 years ago when I got mine, believe it was the ranch in stainless think I paid $4xx
Friend of mine bought the "ranch" model about 3 years ago. It seemed to shoot well the 1 time I shot it. Maybe they redesigned it?
$15 at BEST.
I feel really bad you got so ripped off, I'm willing to give you $50 for it to help you out.
One of my dads friends just bought a stainless nib for like 435 so you prolly did ok, though you should've got the folding stock if you're going to get anything aftermarket for it... might as well throw the scope away as accuracy is shite past like 75-100yds
I know from experience that they will bumpfire though, so cheap plinker ftw
sold to a friend for $435.. wOOT
It's because the Mini14's barrel warps with heat. The more you shoot it, the worse the groupings get until you let the damn things cool down completely and the barrel straightens back out.
wow, you're an awesome friend.
he asked, i didnt offer
prolly a good choice
