finally got around to getting the scope mounted up on the new mini 14 tactical. picked up a set of warne QD rings new in the box on ebay cheap. also installed a couple of the grovetech QD flush mount sling swivels for the magpul 2pt tactical slings i found on closeout. picked up the swivels from a seller on ebay for $6.99 a pair if anyone is interested. i made steel mounting/reinforcing plates that go inside the stock so when the swivels are detached , there are no "bumpy parts" sticking out.
