I sent Gundoc a pm to see if he had a reamer and sent Mini SSS a pm as well. I will try to see if Drifter still has access to one, he did a mini and a bolt rifle.

Has anyone changed gas bushings in their 6.8? I've tried .040 which makes the rifle a single shot, the .045 stovepiped, but the .050 works like a champ.

How many rounds have you fired? The better the parts wear together the smoother it operates and easier to tame the gas with smaller bushings.

I took mine apart and polished the moving parts then dropped in the .050 bushing in, it still throws the brass 6 ft away but not 20ft!

I've put over 500 rounds total through it. At least 300 with the .050 before trying the switch to go smaller; but I only gave the .040 and .045 a few rounds each. I started out with SSI but now I'm shooting Hornady factory loads.

I got a brass catcher from Brownells. They're my go-to source for nearly everything. For the synthetic stocks with out the liner screw you will have to modify the attachment. I used two velcro buttons, stick on type, black, to act as an attachment point. If, however, you use the GG&G pic style clamp on rail, things get a bit more ----- creative. You may have to trim the tabs that fit over the reciever to get it to slide under the rail. It's on my to do list, been busy at work and church. I plan to to use black velco strips, stick on type, in place of the tabs to make it work. Easy on, easy off.

The gas block on my Mini is a really, really really poor fit. More on that on another thread. ASI has an adjustable unit that will ultimely solve all the issues with fit and metering gas flow
