I did try to find other posts about this Mini-14 question I have but most of the hits I got were WTS/WTT ad posts. If this question has already been beat to death, please do send me to the thread that beat it to death. Otherwise, my question is that I'm interested in a Mini-14 for a .223 platform, but a guy I met at a gun table at the PDX gun show said their accuracy was moderate to poor. Can anyone else's experience confirm or rebut this? Is it that Mini-14's have been so eclipsed in popularity by the AR platform, that little has been done to fine tune these guns? Thanks for the input.
