Mini-14 action in a mini-30 SCAR stock?

Hello all,
I have it on good authority that the -14 action will fit quite nicely in a Clyde's
Mini-30 SCAR stock and that the only difference between the two models is the mag well is larger on the -30 stock.
The magazine guide built into the trigger section of the -14 would resolve this extra size issue.
I'm curious if anyone has done this, or if anyone has any thoughts about problems with this setup?
Thanks for any input,
Jack

I can't speak to the SCAR stock directly, but I've run my Mini-14 in a Mini-30 stock with absolutely no issues.

Your thinking is correct re: the mag well. The -14 trigger group compensates for the difference perfectly.

It might fit, but I was at Clyde's store and was going to buy a mini 14 scar, for my mini 6.8. They said it wouldnt fit and to demonstrate, they pulled a mini 30 out of its stock and sure enough it wouldnt drop in, we didnt even get to the trigger group. I think the Mini 30 has a little more metal somewhere on the bottom of the reciever.

That's interesting, when I talked to them this morning, their consensus was that it would fit right in the -30 stock. That being a 580/581 version only.

You're talking about going the other direction, right? I.e., Mini-30 action into Mini-14 stock? No, it won't fit without some, let's say, inletting.
