I am wondering the same thing.
Accuracy systems puts a sleeve over the factory barrel.
Wonder how it shoots after everything heats up.
There will not be 100% contact all the way around.
Seems to be overpriced by about $100.

I am a tight wad.
I'm leaning towards the DRC shorty option.

Then I could put a Choate front sight on, or just re-use

the M14 dovetailed front sight to it.
Shouldn't loose much performance by going down to 16.25.
The government thinks 14 is enough for the M4.

I also just found this forum, so this is my first post.
I'm noticing discussions about even the newer 580x series barrels over-heating with as little as 10-20 rounds and using Accu-Struts or Mo-Rods to...
Hello All. I have a 584 Series Mini 14, and it turned into my favorite gun! What are you guys feeding your guns for factory ammo, that produce good accuracy? I have all military 55gr fmj stuff that I feed both the Mini, and the AR. I think the Mini deserves better. Both guns have 1:9"...
Introductions: I'm just an old man dying of cancer. Didn't shoot a rifle for 40 years, and wanted to do some plinking on the way out.
I read a lot about the Mini-14 before I purchased one, and thanks to this forum, knew about some some upgrades and to do's. After that, went through trying...
