    Just got into firearms...picked up a HK USP-c 9mm SS and a Ruger 10/22 in the same week.

    Definitely loving long gun shooting, but would like to try something in the .223 category. Eventually moving back to CA so not particularly interested in getting an AR, or clone.

    Thinking about the Mini-14, but there seem to be a few variations/options out there?

    The pics thread definitely got me liking their look...any opinions?

    I had one, hated it shot it twice and sold it accuracy was horrible, this was durring the AWB mag's were expensive and the cheap aftermarkets sucked maybe now with the ban over cheap ones that work are available.

    I'd look into doing a cali legal ar build.

    I've never been a big fan of the mini-14. If you want inexpensive .223 semi-auto you can also look into the Kel-Tec SU-16 and some of the .223 AK variants.
