    In the picture posted is a Mini-14 circled. What kind of flash hider is on the end of the barrel, if you can tell?

    Looks possibly like Choate Machine and Tool 7.62 M14 style make by Choate for .223 Mini-14 some years ago. They still make them in Stainless $55.00 and blue $50.00. Click on their Cage model and below it click on small word "Ruger" for all models to appear. Hope this helps.

    I’m new to firearms and only have bought a bolt action rifle. Can anyone give me tips on buying a used mini 14? I’ve never held one so I want to know what to look for and how to check the barrel (since there is no bolt to remove).
    Pardon my ignorance. Just trying to learn here.
