    Sweet rifle! Let us know how it shoots!

    Like to know too.

    Also - does that front rail obstruct the sight picture any? Looks like it's a bit in the way.

    Its a nice comfortable weapon (at least to hold), I look forward shooting it soon. Next I want to order an EO Tech sight for her. I have been eyeballing this model since its debut and hoped I would find one at the show so I could handle it before I purchased it.
    I ended up paying $700.00 new in the box.

    Heres the specs.

    Caliber:.223 Rem. Capacity:20 Rounds Finish:Blued Stock:Synthetic, Collapsible/Folding Barrel Length:16.12" Groove:6 Twist:1:9" RH Overall Length:34" - 37.75" Weight:7.25 lbs California Approved:No Massachusetts Approved:No Front Sight(s):Protected Blade Rear Sight(s):Ghost Ring Aperture Other Features:Garand-Type Safety Suggested Retail Price: $ 872.00 Miscellaneous:Mini-14® Rifle with ATI Folding/Collapsible Stock

    Properly set up, they are quite accurate.

    It's essentially a scaled down M-14/M1A1. Garand locking system, self cleaning cylinder with a fixed piston.

    They fixed early accuracy issues with the redesign a few years back.

    Our State prison system uses them, or did a few years ago.

    well, PGG I guess you will have to figure out how to get one and store it out of state or modify it for California use.


    Choose The Right. When you're doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about.

    I want to see the accuracy with various loads before I pass judgement. The ones I used over the years measured their groups in how big barn walls were.

    For a cop or Joe Blow?

    The rules should be exactly the same, but New Jersey is sort of famous for even fucking with cops about guns and ammo.

    I believe you even allow gun laws by COUNTY, which is insane.

    Edited to add, I found your answer.


    The Title 2C Assault weapons definition (2C:39-1):

    w."Assault firearm" means:

    (1)The following firearms:

    Algimec AGM1 type

    Any shotgun with a revolving cylinder such as the "Street Sweeper" or "Striker 12"

    Weaver Arm Nighthawk.

    (2)Any firearm manufactured under any designation which is substantially identical to any of the firearms listed above.


    (3)A semi-automatic shotgun with either a magazine capacity exceeding six rounds, a pistol grip, or a folding stock.

    (4)A semi-automatic rifle with a fixed magazine capacity exceeding 15 rounds.

    (5)A part or combination of parts designed or intended to convert a firearm into an assault firearm, or any combination of parts from which an assault firearm may be readily assembled if those parts are in the possession or under the control of the same person.

    x."Semi-automatic" means a firearm which fires a single projectile for each single pull of the trigger and is self-reloading or automatically chambers a round, cartridge, or bullet.

    y."Large capacity ammunition magazine" means a box, drum, tube or other container which is capable of holding more than 15 rounds of ammunition to be fed continuously and directly therefrom into a semi-automatic firearm.

    z."Pistol grip" means a well-defined handle, similar to that found on a handgun, that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon, and which permits the shotgun to be held and fired with one hand.
    I'm your huckleberry...
