This is a great rifle. Fairly light weight, great balance. Accurate enough for the round in question, considering it is a 200-300yd round. Bought it from Bud\'s a few years back and have had nothing but good luck with it. I mostly wanted to share that the rifle was designed to fire ammo with a boxer primer, so using berdan-primed ammo like the cheap surplus AK rounds is a big no-no. Here is why: the Berdan primer has a tiny portion of the case that extends up between two small holes to provide a hard surface for the firing pin to strike against. This \"anvil\" extends further toward the back of the cartridge, creating less space between the firing pin and the load than a Boxer primer. A Boxer primer has a centrally located anvil that is inverted in relation to the firing pin, like a divot, leaving more space between the firing pin and the load. Buying a Ruger Mini 30 to run the cheapest AK ammo through it is a mistake. If endless days of munching cheap steel rounds is the plan, an SKS would be a better idea. Over time, Berdan primers will destroy the tip of the firing pin because they allow less travel before the hard stop. Boxers are the ticket. Consider quality ammo in your purchase and planned cost of ownership. As of this writing, the best priced ammo with a Boxer primer is Fiocchi 7.62x39 123gr FMJ. Probably 50 cents a round rather than 25 for surplus. So, ammo will cost around twice as much. You can get away with some use of Golden Bear 7.62x39 because it has a more \"forgiving\" Berdan primer. This was discovered through a lot of research with other Ruger Mini 30 owners. I realize that an AR platform can be had (today) for perhaps less than the Ruger Mini-30, and decent AK47 pattern rifles can be also. But the Ruger Mini 30 is a classic style and shape that is practical and functional. Worth their own spot in your safe. I would recommend this rifle, and I would recommend Bud\'s Gun Shop.

The mini thirty is truly a great gun. I could not get absolute confirmation prior to purchase but it does come with 2 clips (5rds) and the scope rings, and a weaver style base to use other scope rings. Very good surprise. And Buds has low prices which is awesome, but this is a product review not a buds review. This model gun isn't known for accuracy, but my amazement I'm getting 1.25" groups at 100yrds!! (Hornady sst steel case) I changed to the ati tactical stock immediately and mounted a 4x leupold. Nothing but pleased with this firearm, and ammo is cheap. Win win

FINALLY - had this weapon on my wish list for a year! Arrived in typical Buds fashion - fast and efficient. Weapon fired well right out of the box - however, for some reason after lowering the rear sight all the way the weapon still fired way too high at 100 yards. Have not figured this out yet. The rear sight is a difficult and time consuming configuration to zero - Oh, well, I guess I'll just have to buy a scope!

The KMINI-THIRTY works fantastic, if you are looking for a rifle in this caliber, you can't beat the quality and function of this rifle. At 200 yards or less it delivers the goods straight on, beyond 200 it takes a bit of elevation. I hunted all season in the pacific northwest rain and this thing can take it without suffering any comsmetic damage. It will stay in my truck from September to January and only requires minimal care. Do I sound satisfied, I am.
