If this is an old topic, I apologize. I have had a beef with Ruger for some time - and even talked on the phone with their President and COO, Christopher Killoy, who previously served as Vice President of Sales and Marketing (who by the way very nice, but offered no new plans.) It seems you can't throw a rock in the bushes without hitting a Ruger vendor or distributor who isn't producing numerous aftermarket accessories for Ruger revolvers, AR rifles, and bolt rifles, but especially the 10/22. Yet there is very little produced for the Mini series, except a couple of small, niche vendors (I'm thinking primarily about Accuracy Systems here). The Mini-14 - in spite of its detractors - remains a very versatile rifle for a number of interests and is tactically preferred by many over the AR/AK platform due to its simplicity. Am I barking at the wind or does anyone else feel the way I do?
