Thought I would start a post on painted Mini's. I have swapped mine back from the ATI stock to the factory synthetic that I painted a dark camo flat brown. Let's see some pics of your painted Mini's or M14's.
I added Magpul rails to the factory stock. I actually have them on the sides now as well. I have used the AFG on my AR's and AK's and really like ability to drive the forend of the rifle with it. It feels natural on the Mini.
I like the brown stock and handguard. Very original. Those AFGs are nice too, been eyeing them for awhile now. How much are they going for now? I was hoping they would drop in price the last time I looked at them...
I like the AFG on the factory stock. I tried a Gripod and a Tango Down but like the AFG. I also use the AFG on my AR's and AK's so it may just be a matter of mechanics and what I am used to. Here is one on my AR that really seems to compliment my shooting style.
