I've been thinking of getting that new Ruger Mini 14 Davidson's is offering with the Tactical black metal and flash suppressor, and Circassian Walnut stock, but I wasn't sure, so I thought I would go look at a Mini 14 Tactical at Cabela's before I ordered anything. Well, you know the story. They had this really nice Springfield M-1A SOCOM they just unboxed and put on the rack. Suddenly the Mini 14 didn't look so good. So after spending over twice as much I took the SOCOM home. It's a hell of a lot more rifle than the Mini 14 could ever hope to be on it's best day! This gun points like a Sporting Clays Shotgun!
It has the Trijicon illuminated front post with the Ghost Ring rear sight set up. I need to get a nice black nylon padded sling for it. I haven't decided if I'll go with a scout scope setup, or just keep it the way it is with the factory irons. Either way I'll take it out and light up a few next weekend. I got all of my crap done around the house, stuff I've been putting off, so now it's plat time! Bill T.
