Better Rear Sight WANTED

3359 Views 18 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  reloader
I am hopeing someone can point me in the right direction. I'm looking for a better Rear Sight for my Mini... The factory (Plastic? seems sloppy (I can move the whole thing around by hand) and the clicks are too course for me. I also don't like the pinned turns, I'd rather they be dialed with postive clicks.

I want to preserve the military aspect as much as possible so I don't want any high tech plastic. What I really want is an M14 or M1 Style tooless adjustable rear peep. (Steel!)

If I can buy an M1 Garand Rear Sight will it drop right into my Mini without having to machine?

Can anyone point me to a Web page that might have something?

Thanks in adavnce!!!

Nope - the carbine and the garand do not have the same sights - I see no way garand or M-14 sights could be used the base of the sighsts is machined into the reciever.
I have heard that Carbine sights can be used on a Ranch rifle - just wanted to clarify.
As our cajun moderator noted, the two "best" after market sights are the millet and the williams - I think the williams has the egde as it can be adjusted by hand whereas the millet needs a screwdriver.
I'm no expert on this subject - but it does look like you could mount a Carbine sighy on a Ranch Rifle - sell that little dovetail the carbine sight fits in? I could see how some grinding could make it work. That's a ranch rifle, not a standard mini, they have very different sight mounting systms.
Who knows if the hieght of the rear sight would be too high? Dunno - Has somebody ever done this sucessfully??
Hey Sarge -
That williams web site is worthless - you need to go to and they have all you need.
Reloader - I'm curious - what type of front sight did you use on that heavy barrel mini-14 you were talking about?
