Mini-14 vs AR15: Which is Better?

I'm looking and am having trouble deciding.  


 BUT- they aren't making noises about coming for the Mini-14 because it's not encased in scary black plastic. 



Which makes it even moar badder.


  1. The mini 14 is on the list of guns to ban. All auto loaders. Get what you want. If they try to take it give them the bullets first. Piss on them

  2. Never fired a Mini 14 but from reputation alone, sounds like one bad mf'er !!
    I remember the bad guys in the Miami-Dade shootout had one.

  3. The new Mini's are decent rifles, the older ones are... not as good.

    My 181 series Mini had a wandering zero, but was completely reliable.

    Buddy's 180 series was finicky about magazines.

    The old ones had issues with getting a scope mounted too.

    But, today, if you go buy a new rifle, the Mini is competitive with the AR except the AR is going to be a lot cheaper and magazines are a lot cheaper and more available.

  4. I've seen this video, and it's a great explanation of differences between the two rifles, but it's also a little dated.

    I would not argue the AR is a more accurate rifle, but I have a Mini-14 that groups 1.5" @ 100yds and 3" @ 200 yds.

    Your mileage may vary.

  5. The A Team had mini 14s and they couldn't hit shiiit..
    But Damm theys purtee!
