Mini-30 is a great weapon...new ones are far more accurate than the old ones.....not a .308 or 30-06, but in that direction.......love mine....

Have a 40 year old Remington 742 semi-auto 30-06, and I guess they’d call that an assault weapon too, even tho the mag only holds 4 rounds....

The Mini-30's are a neat concept; kind of the modern incarnation of the .30-30 carbine. Take a look at the respective ballistics of the two some time and you'll see what a close comparison it is.

Philosophically, I decided long ago to never purchase/own a Warsaw pact caliber. I've probably missed out on owning some pretty fine weapons, and as unlikely as it seemed at the time I made that decision, some pretty cheap bulk ammo, too.

As I would say to anybody in regards to their choice of weapon, if you like it, and it suits you, go for it :-)

You can buy extended magazines for that rifle if you know where to look. I had one years ago and it had an extended magazine. When I sold it I kept the magazine.
