I've had two Post-Ban Ranch Rifles but got rid of them. I have a gun I'm asking $475 for and am offered a Pre-Ban (1991) stainless (not the Ranch) in trade. I'm not real excited about aquiring another Mini (spoiled by the accuracy of my AR-15s) but if it is worth more than the $475 I'm asking for mine, I could peddle it. The Mini is alegedly in excellent condition with very few round fired through it. Thanks for your input.
