    There are a few things in life that I will never do. One is put my hand in a blender.

    Another is pay $2500 for a mini-14.

    Looks like a sling stud to me. On the gas block, like on all Mini-14s.

    You're just making shit up to bitch about. ALL mini-14s have a sling swivel on the underside of the gas block.

    The only thing I see mounted to the barrel is the front sight post. :uh:

    My mini-14 doesn't doesn't need a twice-daily cleaning and ammo that costs $1.50 a round to fire reliably.

    The fact that it's not all tacticool and have a $1500 baseline price like your AR doesn't make it a piece of shit.

    Ok, I forgive you for being a dumbass.

    OMG Sub-moa groups from a $2500 gun? NO WAY! 3-shot groups even, how generous.

    The Hi-Point is the greatest handgun ever, it has a lifetime warranty! Also, most pawn shops that sell hi points also can cash your welfare checks for you!

    This is an amazing, excellent post. Unfortunately, I have no idea what you're blathering about or how it relates to what I said.

    Eh, my $800 S&W AR works great. The whole thing with steel vs brass case is silly though. The lacquer-coated ammo simply cannot be used in conjunction with brass cased. Zinc coated rounds should feed perfectly. The problem is the steel cases don't expand and seal up the throat and the lacquer burns off and deposits in the chamber. When you run expanding brass-cased ammo through there, it expands around the piles of lacquer in the chamber and gets stuck. Cleaning between ammo types or just using zinc-coated cases instead of the lacquered kind should solve any ammo-related problem with extraction on an AR.

    Any semi-auto chambered in .223 will have this problem, the cases are not tapered very much. Why someone thought a very straight cased cartridge would work well in a full-auto rifle is a mystery to me.

    I'm right there with you, Joe.

    The Mini-14 is a great weapon. Sure, it has some shortcomings, but it has a lot going for it too. I've never understood the hate for it.
