    When I sold mine to my cousin I kept some of the elusive 30 round magazines, now if I ever get one I would want twenties anyway, there was always something just right about a svelte Mini with a compact twenty hanging out of it. But I wanted an AR when I didn't have enough money to keep all of the cool things, I wish I could have all of the cars and guns and motorcycles I had to trade to upgrade.

    Did they ever make a Mini 30 in 300BO? Shit, wait....

    I looked at 300 BO when I bought mine. I had .223 all set up for loading so just stayed there.

    Another question would be did anyone make an M4 in 7.62x39?

    I think the easy fix is a longer firing pin. 0.038" - 0.042" or something like that. Is your ammo Tula? Lots of problems with that ammo from doing some research. No personal experience.

    Or sell your stockpile and go to a different caliber (unless you have a bunch of AKs). I have long thought of getting a Mini30 for all the obvious reasons but the magazine selection (now better) and reported troubles with steel cases ammo have always cooled my jets. Itís really hard for me to justify a 762x39 if it doesnít shoot steel cased.

    Nobody locally is interested in buying 7.62x39 unless youíre practically giving it away and Iím not interested in shipping it. Iíve still got an SKS so itís not like I canít use it anyway.

    Extra power hammer springs are available from Wolff. Trigger pull is slightly heavier of course.
    My apologies to weasels.
