    I doubt the ak will have better accuracy, but it will probably be more reliable. What caliber is the ranch rifle?

    I'd take the Mini 14 over a AK-47 anyday :bigthumb:

    The Ranch is stainless correct? Pretty sure it is...

    I'd jump on that in a second!

    As a Romanian SAR-1 normaly sells for well under 400 and the Ruger Mini-14 Ranch Rifle sells for ~700. In that the trade is in your favor. But I know i wouldent trade my Chinese AKS for a Mini-14. 223 is more expensive to shoot then 7.62x39, and moving from 30 round mags to 5 round mags just doesnt make sence. The Ruger is going to be more accurate. 223 also has alot of muzzle flash out of shorter barrels like the 18.5 of the Ranch Rifle. Personaly i say no. The AK has alot better of an aftermarket too.

    I'd take the Mini, sell it, and buy a nicer AK or an AR.

    I have heard that the accuracy on the mini 14 is mediocre at best. I would go with the SAR-1 over the ruger.

    Go with the Mini 14. I have had mine for about 7 years now and you can get 20, 30, and even 40 round magazines for them fairly cheap. I have two AK's (Maadi and a Norinco) and the mini 14 is way more accurate, plus their are plenty of aftermarket accessories available (this goes for both rifles). Check out bushmaster's website, they can outfit in many ways.
