Satan2655:

Good eye. As you noted, it's the same mini-14 but I swapped back to the original handguard from the M-14 style, and added a Aimpoint Comp-ML (3 MOA), and AO rear peep sight.

Thanks to all for the compliments, it's really a sweet, compact combo.

Original barrel cut to 15" w/permanently attached muzzle brake OAL is 16.25"

Bell & Carlson Carbelite stock

Shoots great, very low recoil and fast shot-to-shot recovery. Muzzle blast is very noticeable to bystanders...

Grinch:

Both handguards fit tight (just squeeze the retaining clip to increase pressure as needed), but the M-14 style forend although cool-looking, allows occasional hand-to-slide contact.

On a carbine-style weapon like this, quick mounting doesn't always lend itself to perfect hand placement, and the stock handguard (IMHO opinion) is better suited.

On my Shilen-barreled Mini-14, I prefer the M14-style handguard.

It's a Choate front sight/flash hider with the flash hider removed & replaced with a muzzle brake for Kalifornia legality.

Sorry, but the site I use to archive photos doesn't allow dynamic linking due to volume. Try again, it should show the image once traffic eases...

Resman:

The mount is from a Armson/Trijicon O.E.G. sight that I sold. I liked the mount's ruggedness & compactness compared to the B-Square. It has weaver-style rails, but I had to cut a slot to accomodate the Comp ML ring mounting screw.

Don't know of a source for it other than Armson, I guess you could try them.

Hey Codger,
That's art. That's a very nice rifle.

You did mention you're in Kalifornia, so I hope you don't mind if I throw a temper tantrum. It's not on you, I just want to spread the word on how the Socialists have put us gun owners in jeopardy.

I'm a resident of Socialist Kalifornia and an American citizen, and the gun laws of this fair state are a bit confusing. Do you know how the attorney general (gun czar) defines the difference between a muzzle brake and a flash suppressor? He isn't telling. I guess he wants a jury to decide. You know, people who sit home all day and watch Rosie?

Sorry to bring it up, but I'm finding out that my friends at work don't know that their used-to-be legal firearms are now ASSault weapons!

Please permit me to rant for a minute about politics for a minute:

For everyone reading this post from outside occupied territory, I suggest you get involved in politics. The Kalifornia Socialists passed ex post facto laws here. So even if you bought your mini-14 legally in Kalifornia before the law, you are at risk of being a felon. If you have hi-cap mags, flash suppressor, folding stock, or whatever, you are a felon if you did not turn it in to police before the deadline, register it as an ASSault weapon before the deadline, transfer it out of state before the deadline, or convert it to a legal firearm before the deadline.

If you didn't make the deadline, you may rot in jail. Hey, that's the worst case. On my way home, there's a billboard, that says "A gun crime is 5-10 years in jail. PROJECT EXILE." That's our NRA in action!

Kalifornia Citizen:

As a native Kalifornian I share your anger over the socialistic regime and laws of this once-great state. So far I have managed to avoid registration of any of my firearms by reconfiguring them in compliance with enacted legislation. Fortunately, my younger brother is in law enforcement and by virtue of my influence on his development, is a staunch firearms enthusiast/NRA member/hunter. Between his inside information, the NRA, internet and newspapers, we keep informed on current law enforcement policies and firearm legality.

But you are correct in stating that we all need to do as much as possible to protect against any further erosion of our rights...
