For give me, I went dark in to the 223 land. I turned 65 and I thought it would make life grand. Only good to shoot yotes and ground hogs.
Always looking for military manuals, Dodge M37 items,books on Berlin Germany, old atlases ( before 1946) , military maps of Scotland. English and Canadian gun parts.

I've always wondered why the Ruger Mini-14 never became the standard infantry rifle. Other than it isn't black and sexy, seems like a pretty simple and dependable weapon. Was it because it didn't have "full auto" capabilities? At least, I don't think it does.

The mini 14 is loosely based on the M14 and designed for the commercial market, not really a service rifle.
Handy little rife for varmint shooting, but like all good things here in Canada, its one of the no no`s along with the M14/305`s , a real shame.
shoot em if you got em

There was a F/A version it was markets to many services but not accepted by any, they called it the AC-556, to save confusion with the civilian Mini-14.
Bil Ruger was an odd duck in some ways, he didn't like the idea of "military magazines & guns" being in civvy hands.
Basically it held the same relationship with the Mini-14 that the M-15 held with the M-14.
