Would it be possible to install a stripper clip guide on the Mini-14, sort of like what is on the M1A/M14? I think it would be cool to use 10 rd. AR-15 strippers as an alternitive to having a bunch of expensive magazines.

I bought a black anodized aluminum stripper-clip guide a long time ago from an ad in Shotgun News.
It attaches via a screw through a new side plate (like many detachable scope mounts use), and has an allen head screw to snug it to the top of the receiver.
It works well, is see-through, and also protects the rear sight.
I have no idea if they're still available.

They do make a special stripper-clip guide for mini-14 mags,and they look VERY much like the m-16 ones! They are fairly easy to find (for sale),and I have one,I just can't seem to find it at this moment. They only cost a couple bucks,and use the m-16 stripper-clips to feed the mini-14 mag.

I'll look around a little at some of the sites I buy from and see if I can locate one and I'll report back!!

quadfan---I think they were talking about one more in line with the guide on an M-14, which is just forward of the rear sight & allows stripper loading right into the magazine while the magazines is still in the rifle. Comes in very handy when reloading magazines after a firefight.

I can see such a guide on a Mini-14. Think of those 10 round mags being recharged by a 10 round AR stripper! Also, I have always wondered how much wear is put on a polymer magazine by unhooking and rehooking the mag in place. Using a stripper with a guide on the gun would allow you to leave the mag in place while shooting.

Yep, It looks like you're right,I think they are talking about an SKS-type stripper guide,and I don't know of one of those types. The only ones I know of are used with the mags out of the gun.

many years ago (early 80's) someone used to market a new rear sight with a stripper clip guide built into it. It was'nt Federal Ordnance though and it was'nt cheap either. It had an adjustable peep and was machined from steel. I have only seen one on a Mini at a gun show back then, and they used to be advertised in Shotgun News also.

If anyone ever came out with a good add-on stripper clip guide for the Mini-14, I'd be a customer before the ink could dry on my check. Lack of a stripper clip guide is *the* major shortcoming of the Mini, in my opinion.

A person might find a used one on E-Bay or one of the firearms auction boards. Like I said the one I remember was quite exspensive, or I probably would have bought one. To be honest I doubt they sold many back then because they were exspensive and P.M.I mags were about $8.00 ea. then.
