First off shipping from Buds was fast and came quicker than i thought. Now the mini 14 review. Its pretty top heavy and it jammed on me a few times ( could be the ammo or just being broke in, dont know but after 40rnds it did stop) and needs to be sighted in ,other than that it is a really nice rifle. Its a keeper for sure.

This was my first purchase from Buds, buying online was easy and the shipping was fast. The Ruger Mini 14 is awesome, it eats anything from match grade ammo to Russian surplus without an issue. I do ATI tactical stock due to the folding rear, it is bulky and I never fold it down. The collapsable stock is great though. I mounted a red dot on it at first but then changed to a scope when I realized how far it could reach. The rifle came with one magazine and scope mounts from Ruger. I deffinatley recommend spending the money and getting Ruger magazines, it did not like the Pro Mag one that I tried.

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.
