t-bone,

I was using PMP .223 Remington FJBT 55 gr.

PMP is manufactured by Pretoria Metal Pressings A Division of Denel (PTY) LTD, Republic Of South Africa.

I shot one group of three shots at 1.5" at 85 yards with this cartridge. I have never had a group so small. S&B gave me groups around 6-7 in at 85 yards. I only shot one group with the PMP before removing my scope. I was in the process of taking off my scope and removing my handguard (which was bumping my scope) and reinstalling my scope. I ran out of my 20 rounds of PMP before getting the scope sighted back in. I hope I can reproduce the 1.5" group. I have got to get more PMP.

I have a convenient pile of dead trees to tack a target to about 85 yards from my house. That is why I was shooting 85 yds instead of 50 or 100 yds.

I have a BSA 3-10X44 scope and it rubbed against the hardguard with the scope rings that came with the gun. I just got my new high scope rings today from cheaperthandirt. I installed them on my gun and put my scope back on but it is to dark to shoot. I'll have to sight it in tomorrow. Now I have a .25" clearance between the handguard and the scope!

I didn't know there were aftermarket handguards that were lower profile.

t-bone,

Tell me more about the integral rings. I have a ranch s/s/s/s but it did not come with the rings you describe. It had the stainless medium height scope rings. I didn't know there was a factory quick release scope mount. I thought all of the quick release stuff was after market. I just invested in the standard high ss scope rings.

That handguard looks pretty slick.

Mike,

Do you ever install trigger over-travel stops?

What is the price for the shok-buff and the gas-port kit? Where do you install the shok-buff?

What is the price for the fire lapping supplies?

Do you slug the barrel before fire lapping to see if it has constrictions or do you feel that fire lapping will pretty much improve any stock barrel on the mini-14?

Thanks,

V.V.
