If you have one, keep the mini. They aren't as accurate as an AR, but the damn things are pigs, they eat anything and keep on ticking.

I would keep the mini-14 because they are .223, they are reliable, they are fun to shoot, they are sort of an assault weapon, they look cool, they can accept high capacity magizines, and they are accurate for man-sized targets in SHTF. I personally have 4 preban mini-14s. Two have been custom parked and two are stainless. All are 100% reliable, no jams EVER. I also have 4 Ram-Line folders and 4 metal folding stocks for use if I need them. Just get some good mags and keep it. Assault weapons are much more practical and fun to shoot than giant caliber pistols than have strong recoil. I also have a CAR-15, postban Bushmaster 20" HBAR with a Armalite chromed barrel, and a sweet SAR-2 fixed up with Hungarian furniture and a AA-OK musslebrake. So, as you can see I like assault weapons and I would keep the mini.

jcb9901, you don't mention the condition of either gun but the .454 - Exc. is $650. - VG is $500.
On the Mini-14 you're about $375.00 - $450.00

Since your Mini-14 is pre-ban your barrel cost Ruger about $8.00.
The Mini-14 was designed by one of Eugene Stoners boys, superb receiver/action - garbage barrel.
Put on a decent barrel and you have a much more accurate weapon.
