I've seen several manufacturers of bull barrels and heavy gas blocks for the Mini-14. But all of these people want to charge you for installation.

Has anyone swaped out barrels on their Mini-14? This appears to be more involved than changing out the barrel in an AR-15, does anyone know what all is invovled in this? Can I buy the parts anywhere and give them to my local gunsmith to do - I don't think I'm even permitted to ship my AC556 off, nor do I want to let it out of site even for one second, after I get it.

All suggestions on where to get replacement barrels and bull barrels are welcome. Thanks

It's blued. I didn't know that they were made in a black park finish - cool! I'm thinking about beefing it up so that it can better withstand the heat of rapid fire. I figured that the beefier gas block and a threaded bull barrel would do just fine. I'll check out the thread you refer to. Thanks
