Thanks.
Because it was used in Norway to slaughter 77 people who had the misfortune of not being allowed to have firearms to protect themselves. Trust me, the Mini-14 will either be on a ban list now, or will be banned next, if they do get a ban passed.

The Mini-14 will also be subject to cosmetic restrictions now.

Currently the Mini 14 Tactical is a restricted firearm in Maryland due to its folding butt... So you can bet it would be included in any Assault Weapons Ban.. Hopefully the Rancher will not be listed...

Actually hopefully no band will be allowed!

Not true. The most tacticals do not have the ATI stock. What makes them a tactical is the 16" barrel. Most also have a factory flash hider. The "folding stock" model referenced on the regulated list is the pre-ban side folders from the 80's.

So what you are saying is the store where I purchased my factory Mini 14 Tactical - not a used mini 14 with an aftermarket stock - was wrong? And I waited for no reason? In fact I had to wait additional time because I had already purchased a regulated firearm (S&W M&P9) that month and had not received my designated collectors status letter...

Hmm ... water under the bridge but that really sucks...

Not exactly. My point was that it's reg'd because of the stock not because it's a tactical. My tactical was cash and carry. It came in the synthetic traditional style stock. Now if yours came in the ATI folder stock, that's why they made you do the papers.

This is why I wanted one with a nice wood stock that I could use later if needed.

I put techsights on my SKS and it went from an inaccurate pig at 100m to 2 inch groups of up to about 20 rounds. After 21 years in the Marine Corps (just retired a year ago) I can proudly say I never fired with optics. Iron sights never fail you. Your eyes might fail you but the sights won't.

My Beretta Storm was my first riffle with iron sights. I really liked them. The riffle I am getting has a scope on it but I may take it off to help train myself and my sons. Not every gun will have a scope.
