the mini-14 was a consideration of mine while looking for a backpacking rifle. i ended up going with a keltec su-16c with a red dot sight (no zoom) on it. 30 rd mags. baseball size groups at 200 yrds shooting off the built in bipod. i haven't had a jam yet, but i've only gone through 200 rds and lubed it once when i first bought it. so far i think it's pretty solid and for the price i picked it up for, no complaints at all other than the bipod legs are still a bitch to get undone.

Not even close.
The mini is a nice compact rifle. Other than that, the M-4 has been refined over the years, and there truly is no comparison.
The Mini would better compare to the SKS.

It's a decent rifle for the money. It's better to start off with minimal investment and learn what you like/want in a rifle like that, then plan out and move up on the next one so you know what you want and know what you're getting. You don't want to start with a Noveske, only to find out that you don't like this style of gun or you wish you'd gotten a different set of options, etc. Go to range, load gun, pull trigger. Repeat. It will all sort itself out.

Totally why I decided to go that route. Frank and a couple others had me gassed up last year to build one. The more I have studied the more I was like what do I really want. Its not a huge amount of money but I don't like just jumping into things anymore and it takes me forever to do stuff like that now. It'll be forever till I upgrade year model on the bike

All it needs to do is go bang at every pull of the go lever and as accurate as you can get and everything else will fall incline like kirk said.

The DPMS Sportical is a great starter rifle. It has everything you need and it will shoot very well. Mine is a wilson lower with a doublestar parts kit and cheapo stock. I put NCstar BUIS on it and a cowitnessing SPARC red dot by Vortex. All in all I'm 750 bucks in a fully functioning, night vision compatible AR15. The only real upgrades I needed to make it work a little better was the enhanced charging handle, trigger spring kit and sling attachment back plate.

Got out to 3 shots touching at 200 yards then the scope started to $hit out on me. Shot 4 more shots and it moved 2" to the right and 2" down with each shot. It was a cheapo scope though (8x32x50 for $99). I'll have to get a gooder one on it and try it again.
I like it though.

Look at the super sniper's in HD glass. A bit over a grand, but for the money they are great scopes. That or nightforce imo.

I'm torn on those. I use one on my go to AR, but the others have the attachment and buckle type. The button is hard to operate with gloves, but all my single point's have a quick release on the loop for emergency removal. Personal preference I guess..
