Thinking about this rifle "bolt-on" extravaganza...

Looking for first rifle, and was looking at AR's (.223). But I think I may have found something more interesting...


Ruger Tactical rifle + Troy Mini MCS...



+



=




I like it - pretty expensive in the long run, though.


Would also throw this on...


So, Lone Star, now you see that evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

For me, I don't like the look of the gaps... what's the cost anyhow?

Pass, kills the idea of the Mini-14 as a lightweight simple platform. Looks as silly as the various .22 rf rifles converted to look like an AR. If you want an AR get an AR. Will more than likely be more accurate than the Mini, maybe less $$ and much better in available parts/magazines/mods/and so-called tactical upgrades.

Once had a nice Ranch Rifle, wish that I still had it. But compared to my now gone Rock River AR it could not get close.

And for a first rifle I'd get a .22 and shoot it for a lot le$$ cash than a .223.

Magpul lists stock for $254, Troy lists furniture for $649, and Mini-14's around $700, depending where you get it. Expensive.

I also saw a few done with the EBR/M-14 hand guard with a short rail covers in front of it, and that looked nice, too. More added cost.


I'm looking for something that's a little bit tacti-cool/custom as a rifle to take to the range and learn with. I should just get a .22, but I also wanted something a little more capable then a .22. Pay for what want, I guess.

Should have refreshed before replying above...

Yeah, I think I can agree with most of that. Still thought it'd be fun to have something completely different. +1 to AR being cheaper/more mods overall?
