    AR 180, FNC, AR-70, Steyr AUG, Mini-14 or Sig .223 Rifle?

    Hi everyone!

    I am trying to decide on a 5.56mm / .223 semi-auto rifle that has a true folding stock and scope mount. Not interested in an AR as they don't fold, and not looking for another AK. I seem to have narrowed it down to:

    Armalite AR 180 (not AR 180B)
    FN FNC
    Beretta AR-70
    Ruger Mini-14
    Sig 550/551/556
    Steyr AUG
    HK SL8 / G-36
    Robinson Arms XCR
    Para Ordnance Folding AR style rifle
    FN P 90
    Tavor

    Already have an HK-93.

    Does anyone own or have you owned the above? What were any problems you had? What did you like. Price isn't so much a factor as quality and reliability.

    Thanks for you time.

    I have had a few of the Ruger mini's. Zero problems, found magazines to be expensive & hard to get.
    Shoot well enough for me to use a patrol rifle. That was the police/ government model with folding stock & bayonet lug. That was a long time ago.

    Thanks for your input, Norton. I am strongly considering the Ruger because:

    I like the folding stock
    I like stainless
    Ruger makes quality.
    I can mount a scope.
    Small size.
