In my view, they're a bit pricey out of the box and Ruger aftermarket parts seem difficult to come by. I'd go with a 1949-50 Soviet SKS because of cheap parts, easy field repairs, and a fixed 10 round magazine. You can spend the $ you'd use on magazines for ammunition, parts, clips, and such.I am considering a Mini30 for my primary weapon.
Can you all give me reasons why I may or may not
want to do this, before I do it (tomorrow).
