Got this from Buds 18 months ago. Shot it three times since. The Mini-14 is simply awesome. Never fails to feed unless I use a cheap aftermarket mag. Use the factory or the new 2nd gen. Tapco mags, and all is good. Put buffers in the gas port and recoil buffer spring area, and it works excellent. Actually used David Tubb's Final Finish pre-loaded ammo. ($50.00) and "finished" the barrel and chamber that way for improved accuracy before I even started shooting normal ammo. The ATI stock is fine, and folds when you want to use it short. Yoiu can shoot when it is folded, which is sort of like the selling point of the Kel-Tec SU-16 "C" model. Also have a Ruger LCP, and it is light in my pocket right now! Just bought a take-down Ruger 10/22, and can't wait for it! GO RUGER

Bud's is a great dealer. Fair price and super quick delivery. The weapon is a sweet suprise howerer; the manuel is not very helpful for this configuation and is confusing when trying to zero the weapon. Overall I am very satisfied with my purchase.

I SOLD MINE FOR AN AR-15 !! Yep, when you consider the price of weapon along with expensive factory mags, it adds up.. The 12 dollar Tapco Mini 14 mags are great and work pretty well. But for extreme reliability and rugedness the 30-42 dollar factory mags are where its at. Also, the weapon is heavier than an AR15. With just a red dot, forgrip, and 6 in bottom rail which should have came with gun in the first place instead of that lame 2 in. , the weapon weighed in a little over 8 pounds !! and all of this weight seems to be in the folding mechanism and pistol grip area. In other words, horribly balanced. The stock and cheek piece feel cheap and not durable at all. The Iron Sights are almost un-usable with the top rail installed. My AR15 weighs about 6 lbs with the same accessories attached. I would not want to carry the Mini 14 ATI on a hike, in combat, WROL, SHTF wutever, its just too damn heave for a 30 round 223. And don't even get me started on cleaning it, i almost had to break down and go to the gun shop just to get the bolt back in, luckily i somehow finagled it in and decided to never remove it again. _:( I bought my Mini for $668. I bought my AR-15 for a lil under 600. Plum Crazy Lower(120), ZM4, Modle 1, or Ranger Sales Upper(275-330), Bolt Carrier Group(100), Charging Handle(15) with the rest, I bout a sweet BUIS, 10 magazines, and a sling. And with Piston retrofit systems ranging from 170-400 with many options in between, there is no reason not to have an AR unless ur trying to go for the 2nd kind of cool. I know People hate to jump on the AR15 bandwagon, but seriously, there is nothing a Mini 14 can do that an AR cant do better....alot better. Besides, Ruger SR 556 pretty much puts this thing to shame. All of this is not buds fault, the order was fast and smooth and Ive since bought other weapons from buds, but i will never own another Mini 14 unless its free and has been converted to take AR15 Mags.

Hey guys just shot my mini 14 581 tactical ATI series today. I'm not at all an experienced rifle shooter too say the least but at 50yrds and open sites i had tight groupings... i was impressed but i have to say the sites are extremely difficult to line up... i will definitely be getting a scope/or an optic, still debating. Any advice on this would be appreciated... I had no feeding issues and second and third shot lined up great.. the 20 rd mag worked flawlessly.. i bought a 30 rd promag and it wouldn't feed at all, so i was absolutely disappointed at that cuz the 30rd mag looks good on this rifle... anyone have any opinions/suggestions on this let me know!!! Overall so far i'm lovin this rifle and when i get an optic/scope i'll love it more i'm sure!! wiley_32 is online now Report Post

I made my first gun purchase from Buds. I was really satisfied with their low pricing and fast shipping. I will definitely be buying some more guns from them in the near future! As for the gun. It's awesome. I have put about 300 rounds through it with no problems or jams. Easy to strip and clean. The iron sights are ok. Once I got it sighted in, it was shooting a 3" cluster at about 100 yards. The gun is a little nose heavy, but it actually helps a lot with the recoil. It's a fun gun to shoot and a great gun for the money!
