Is it me or is this the second time in about a month we have gone down this road with someone?
The Mini-14 IS gas operated. it has a gas system I can't think of too many, outside of the H&K, .223 rifles that aren't gas operated.
The HK is a "delayed roller locked blowback" . In it's lightest rendition it is, IMO a bit heavy for the round.
Other than the HK the world of semi auto .223 and larger operates on gas.
"Oh bother" said Pooh, as he punched the magazine release...
In some peoples minds "What if?" is just as real as What Is.
Think good thoughts about Ronny moving to the Netherlands ASAP
