Im about to buy a mini 14 tactical, catalog number 5847....not the ATI stock. I like the more traditional look. One of the uses for this gun will be hog hunting where I live in Texas. As you know hog hunting is often done at nice. Those with out a light attached to their gun need not apply. Not having one is a good way to get hurt. I love the mini 14...I just can't see how to attach a flashlight to it. I've seen some guys drill into the stock and put picatinny rails on the stock. I like that but seem like a something I'll just totally screw up and regret. Im trying to keep the gun as light as possible with basic optics and a light, thats it. How do I do this and not make it look *******? I've seen some rails that attach to the barrel, no idea if those work with the tapered barrel. I've been doing a lot of looking and Im at my wits end on what to do. Just throw some ideas at me.....please. Thanks!
