Here are some pics of my personal Mini 14 that I finished a couple of weeks ago. As you can see, its a pre-ban with a factory folding stock.
I cut the barrel and soldered on a Vortex flash supressor so that the total length of barrel and supressor is 16.5". I installed my Tactical Flashlight Mount, Tactical Extended Mag Release and Side Mount Sling Swivels (available soon).
The STAINLESS STEEL Mini is coated with GunKote, one of the most durable finishes on the market. The stock is finished with textured TuffKote.
I find that shortening the barrel and adding the Vortex flash supressor adds rigidity to the barrel and will shrink group sizes.

The Flashlight Mount and Extended Mag Release are available on this site as well.
Thanks for looking. I really enjoy building these.
