Hi yall, This is my ongoing project. I've been reading a lot of great info from this forum and really turned my regret of buying an older mini into one I am extremely proud about. I wanted to keep that feeling of a handy, light carbine. It really is what drove me to buy this gun. In my opinion, it's what makes the Mini so cool. And the fact it just looks so damn good, with that m1 style action and wood stock. Here is a list of what I've done to improve her.
- Ultimak Rail
- Mcarbo Trigger Spring
- 0.45 Gas bushing
- Wilson Combat 1911 Buffers
For accessories, I got three John Masen 10rd mags, which work great with a little tweaking. one factory 5rd mag. For the sling, its a Magpul ms1 attached with some 550 cord to allow me to have a proper 2 point sling. I was going to just get the Spectar Gear 2 point sling but thought I would save some cash as this works just fine and is just as reliable with the proper knot. If I ever get the balls maybe I will install some small 5 slot magpul rails on each side and have the sling attached to that.
For future upgrades, id like to get a Cogburn Arsenal mini-style front sight and also replace the rear sight with a Tech Sights rr200. I wanna keep the gun as light as possible so that's why I haven't installed a strut yet. I know they help a ton with accuracy but Id thought I'd see how well she shoots in this configuration before I spend the 100 bucks on one. Also, I really don't shoot that far as most ranges by me are 25 yards and at most 100 yards. I'm also looking at micro red dots. Maybe an RMR or something a bit cheaper. Finally, I wanna throw a Surefire Mini Scout Light Pro.
I'm very proud of this gun and hope it will be passed down to my son and then his. Thanks for reading.
