Hello name is Mark. Just picked up an unfired mini 14, 582 serial number. Put an ultimak rail and a Burris fast fire 3 on it. Shot it once so far and it is a nice rifle.

Mamiela, welcome to the forum from Central Virginia! Great firearm and great "upgrades". Some 582s had problems with bolts, but you don't seem to have one afflicted with that issue.

Your combo is certainly a great addition/mod.

Check the gap between the upper/lower gas block to ensure it is even fore-and-aft and port-and-starboard. An uneven gap will cause some accuracy reliability problems. Dig out your old gap gauges sitting in the back of your automotive toolbox, or use a penny or nickel...

Congrats on a fine shooter...

Thanks. I did that with a feeler gauge I got from autozone. Also got a FAT torque wrench and torqued them to 30 lb.

Not the greatest pics but here it is.

You seem to be set u well with an UltiMak, Burris FF-III with protectors, and great Christian panel doors!

Thumb-nails are clean, too!

You should be set! Congrats!!!
