I got to the range yesterday with my Mini-14 with its new Hogue overmolded stock and Eagle muzzle brake. It was great. The stock gives a longer pull which was just right for the standard sights on my mini. The muzzle brake with new front sight was excellent. Once I had it zeroed I was able to get a 5 shot group in about 4 inches at 100 meters. Now this is with iron sights and my glasses aren't in yet. Just diognosed with a Stigmatism. The thinner front sight doesn't mask the target like the stock vane does. the circular sight protector also speeds target aquisintion. Now to look into stock bedding.
I also had my Mini-30 out which is scoped and I was able to make better single shots, but the groups were not very good. This could be a reflection on me or my ammo so obviously I need to spend more time on the range honeing my skills.
