Similar to the Mini-14 suggests the Mini-30 in 7.62x39 (basically a 308 NATO I understand)
Not really the same. 7.62x39 is similar to the .30-30 ballistically, but it's not up to par with the .308. The "original" mini-30, called the "XGI" was to be in .308... but there were problems along the line somewhere, and it was never released. This was back in the late 80s.
... and I definitely want a Ruger Mini-30 before they are banned.
Huh? Did I miss something? Who's talking about "banning" mini-30s?
