"Before" Pictures:





"After" Pictures:









I decided to give LaFawnduh a new hairdo. So, here's what I did:

1. Bought a Fiberglass M14 upper handguard from TreelineM14.
2. Chopped the back end of the handguard off until it was to length.
3. Ground down the side-bottom areas of the handguard until it was short enough to fit in the upper handguard slot.
4. Cut slots out of the right side of the handguard for the charging handle to pass freely.
5. Made a clip for the handguard to attach to the barrel.
6. Drilled a hole through the handguard and barrel clip.
7. Attached the clip to the handguard using a screw and nut.
8. Ground down the screw and nut so it didn't poke too far out the top of the handguard.
9. Clipped the handguard to the barrel.
10. Painted all parts black, set aside to dry.
11. Tested for fit and function.

My inspiration for this project was "Chilly's GI style Mini 14". I think this "classic" M14 look really helps bring out the natural beauty of the Ruger Mini-14.

Thanks for taking a look! Let me know what you think: Hot or Not?
