    Yeah, it's definitely not a cheap rifle.

    It's spendy because it's a gas piston rifle.

    I don't see the point... unless you're going to fire FA a lot and/or go long periods without cleaning, a piston is a waste.

    Lol @ "Ruger's legendary rugged reliability". There's a reason everybody I shoot with calls Mini 14s "Jam-O-Matics".

    2 grand MSRP. Likely about 1600 in the store. Gas piston is a plus for some (too lazy to clean properly) but not worth $6-800 difference, IMHO.

    I have not been a fan of Ruger except for the rimfires and Single action revolvers.

    Always loved the workmanship.the toughness of Ruger Pistols in general,
    Have Dad's old 10/22, a MKII .22, A Mini-14 Ranch Rifle. The latter isn't up to my Bushie M4 or Golani for accuracy, tho.

    Ruger's new 5.56 with all its bells and whistles is just too expensive for my
    use. I don't think they will sell a lot at the price they are asking. And I am not convinced the gas piston set ups are worth what they bring....:fighting0002:
