Mini 14 w/ folding stock, bayonet lug and flash suppressor. It has some obvious wear on the bolt but seems in very good shape otherwise. The price on it is $579

it's worth whatever you can get for it, not a penny more or less

I'm not trying to sell it. I don't own it. I found it in a fun store. I just thought the price seemed a little low, but wanted a second opinion.

How many mags ?

one shiny 30-rd mag

Doesn't sound like a bad deal, if you like the Mini. Mags are expensive and hard to find, tho. They look pretty neat. I just wish they had a reputation for being ACCURATE... then I might get one.

That is a good price if it is a real GB with the factory folding stock with the factory front sight/bayo lug and screw on factory suppressor. If they are aftermarket then it's overpriced.

The bayo lug is definitely aftermarket, it is a clamp type. I will have to take another look at the flash suppressor. Why didn't Ruger make that rifle to accept the AR15 mag? That seems like a real mistake.

If the bayo lug is aftermarket then I would bet that the flash suppressor is too and probably has a set screw holding it on. Is the folder a factory stock, or does it have one of the cheesy plastic folding stocks on it? If it's factory it is still probably worth it, if it's not it isn't worth $500.

I just found some pictures of a factory lug and suppressor. It is definitely aftermarket. However, the stock is factory. It is wooden with the plastic pistol grip and the buttstock folds behind the pistol grip and again at the shoulder piece.
