purchased this online two months ago. have shot about 100 rds. three inch groups iron sights at 80 yds. not bad. however, have had four misfeeds when clip is down to one or two rounds. am thinking about returning it.>>> Reply- try a new magazine before you give up. These guns are bulletproof. Also- Ruger will repair it or replace it to your satisfaction. They are great!
Good service, Great gun. Comes with extras!!!,

Best prices at impact guns.
Locals stores want $100 more plus tax for gun. Everyone on gunbroker was $50 to $100 bucks more for this same gun!...plus cc fees and bad ship rate!
Saved $150 bucks buying it here.
No stupid credit card fee.
No unreasonable ($35 average on gunbroker) rate shipping charge...only paid 10 bucks to ship it!
Service from impact guns was prompt and professional.
Ordered Mini Thirty day after xmas (gift from wife) 26th of december at 9am.
Website said gun would not ship from warehouse until 12th of January.
New years eve (Dec 31) Brady P. From impact guns alerted me via email my items were ready to ship however my ffl I selected off of website had non match address. (Ffl moved across street)
Called customer service new years eve, selected different ffl verbally which they had already registered on their site (handy)
Gun shipped January 2nd around 3:40pm. I received gun at ffl January 6th at 1:30pm.
BONUS!!! SO DESCRIPTION SAID GUN COMES WITH ONE 20RD MAGAZINE.....IT CAME WITH 2-20RD MAGS!
Also gun comes with 1913 pictany rail for top of reciever to mount dot site or scope.
Yes ruger included scope rings.
There is a fancy black and silver ruger padlock that came with gun too with ruger logos on it....not your typical cheap cord gun lock which is better suited for a trailer hitch.
Makes a nice ornament for top of safe.
I did call impact guns with a stupid question about shipping....they answered within a few minutes and we're polite
I would post review on how gun shoots but it's minus 2 outside and windy.
I'm sure it shoots as good as it looks.
Lots of good features with this mini thirty.
Trigger is smoother than most describe in reviews.
Sights are great and durable.
Not tack driver sights but perfect for this style and caliber.
Action sounds sexy when racked and when released it hit's and makes a distinctive PING sound (birdcage hider echo) nice!
Compared quality of stock to m1a socom ii....the plastic is pretty much the same quality. Thought about getting ati stock but have Fallin in love with standard ranch style stock....simple and durable.
Have ak47s, AR'S, Hks, m1as, augs, ar10s, you name it.....this gun is unique and handy! Very light and short.
If you don't have one in the safe better anne up and get one!
Perfect truck gun or brush gun. Will mount low power scope on it and take it deer hunting. Wont get in the way in the woods. Perfect size and weight to carry long distance.
Excellnt semi-auto range and hunting rifle,

I'd buy it again. Best features are reliability and ammo affordability.
It works. I've shot about 1,000 rounds with no mechanical problems. Easy to dissemble and clean (see Youtube videos).
Ammo is affordable. Russian steel-cased ammo sells for less than 30 cents / round --- cheaper than 9mm and less than half the cost of other rifle calibers. This has been important to me, since I'm learning to shoot accurately enough to make first-shot kills hunting. Lots of practice has made me lots better. I've noticed that at the range, guys with other calibers don't shoot as long as I do.
Semi-auto action. Lots of fun.
Hunting caliber. I live in a state where hunting deer, etc. with AR .223 is illegal. This rifle's 7.62 x 39 ammo is legal for hunting here. Be sure to Lok-tite your scope.
1 of my 6 Ruger 20-round mags jams and is unusable.
Cheap steel cased ammo occasionally fails to fire. I read that this is due to the AK caliber ammo, which needs a heavy primer strike. This happens less than once a magazine (20). When it does I just rack the bolt and accept this as a feature of a gun that is so affordable to shoot.
