Well, a friend of mine for many years has purchased a new ruger tactical mini14 and has sold me his LNIB 185 s/s model, for $450.00!...a minty mini w/ perfect wood. He is the original owner and has not fired this rifle manytimes at all over the years. Im keeping it stock configuration except adding an accu-strut for closing up the 4" groups at 100 yds. Purchased 4 Ruger 20 rounders from Midway for $27.49 each....Im a happy man! :D

Your story is a lot like mine. I bought a SS series 197 Mini 14 and never fired it. I later bought a tactical and began to use it. A co-worker wanted the 197 and I sold it to him for 550.00. Couple months later he wanted a shotgun, needed money and I bought the Mini back. Co-worker fired it about 40 rounds. I will hang on to it now, I actually like it better than the tactical. The availability of good mags is great too, you got a good price. Congrats.
