I like Ar'S A LOT. I wanted one real bad, but the price is fricken stupid.

I got my Mini 14 Tactical form CDNN for 597.97 shipping and all, plus they gave me a free rail mount.

I love the 5.56, and there is no way I will ever own a AK 47 and the worthless 7.62 round.

The 7.62x39 is worthless? AK is worthless?

News to me! LOL

I like my Mini-14 but when it is hitting the fan...I want my "worthless AK" thank you.

I could not find a brand new AR that was worth a crap, under 600 bucks, so I got a brand new Tactical Mini 14 form CDNN for only 597.97 inculeds shipping and a free rail mount.

Do you just love the AR manufacturers taking care of their customers and and providing goods people can afford huh?

Man, they are such smart business people.

a quality firearm is going to cost money, its not going to be free. thats what you are paying for from the major manufacturers, quality. im not saying that the mini isnt a quality gun but it is made by ruger now. Their ar is $1300+. plus an ar looks way better. i have 2 rra and have never had a problem. but i know that if i do have a problem they will make it right. rra gives a lot of rifle for not a lot of money.

Here's one for $750

Or, if only you saved up a couple hundred more...

Oh, and you likely could have made an AR for around $600.

Plum crazy lower - $119.99 (Not promoting these, but they are cool for what you pay)
Spike's 16" upper - $525
Magpul MBUS (Gen 2) - $55
Magpul PMAG - $14.20
Total - $714.19 + S&H

As you can see, it's not cheap making these things. But a bit more patience and you would have wound up with what you wanted. Enjoy the Mini-14.

799 here, really nice as far as I can tell. I see mini's in this price range. I like the 14 allot. But the AR is just one sweet machine.

I love my mini, but I like my ar's a little more. the mini is fun to shoot though and turns heads with the way mine looks. I dont like AK's they are way too cliche and i find my AR better then the ak's i have shot

Buy 3 mags and you've recouped the AR price premium...well, not really, but almost.

I went with the Kel-Tec SU-16. my number 2 choice was a Saiga (probably would have got one in 5.45x39). I couldn't justify the AR price premium either.

ps. with modern production methods, there is no reason they couldn't profitably make an AR for $300
