I'm looking into the Mini 14 Tactical Rifle (5847). I like the durability/ reliability, as well it's a good looking rifle. I've read reviews, looked at comparisons, watched footage. Seems that accuracy is getting better. It would be my first firearm purchase. I found one for around $740 new. My question to the forum, is there anything else I should consider? Any suggestions before I pull the trigger on this purchase? Also, why is the newer Ruger AR-556 much cheaper...is the mini 14 a better rifle? Many thanks!
