Some of these guns are really magazine sensitive. Genuine Ruger high caps are scarce as hens teeth. That said. The Ruger mini series are resonably priced 762x39 or .223 semi-auto rifles. As a result resale value remains high. The dealer I bought mine from has a store, and posts an ad bi-weekly in a local paper. When I saw the ad I called him an said I want it. I picked it up yesterday, the guy said he must of had 25 calls on it. The next one he gets will now probably go for $400 instead of the $350 I paid. I would pay $325 to $375 for blue one around here. Also, most guys will say if you want 762x39 go SKS or AK.
