I was able to discover my previous mini 14 pictures of the finished product as well as take some new ones. Ive had some requests from some members as well as coworkers to see my rifle so im re-posting them from photobucket to prevent link breaks. Enjoy!

Ok your rifle build has answered my questions I had about my mini 30. I am about to finish my Fulton M14 build, Shuff has creampuff & then my '03A4 build is also working. So next years project is gonna be my Mini 3014 project! I think I'm gonna go with the .30 carbine rear sight but adapt the M14 flash hider / front sight. Your rifle looks great by the way, one to be proud of! Ever think about a black ventilated hand guard?

Thanks from Killashrub

I had a mini 14 vented hand guard It looked a little weird. I'm temped to take a USGI vented handguard and cut it down like I did the M1a handguard that is on it now. I'm actually contemplating on making another one like this but a mini 30 instead. We will see. I have a PTR 91 I want to get and a Standard M1A I want to get and a G43 I want to get, GI 30/40 kraig........list goes on for a while

Way to hustle killashrub you have no idea what you started
I just seen your cross post at Ruger forums as well
Now for the first time I really look at my 10moa ranch Cause my girls need a little brother
Why 10 moa?....This thing reeks Monday after holiday mass production
loose receiver to stock fitment with virtually nonexistent heel contact
Minimal trigger guard draw pressure
Crude lumpy bolt face finish
Only one lug contact in receiver and bolt nose beating the breach face
Kaleshnakov quality trigger pull complete with gritty feel
and that skinny thin barrel

Lions and Tigers and Bears OH MY !

Im sorry for your luck Hardheaded. I was lucky with mine I assume. Mine was shooting a strong 1.75-2moa out the box. Decent trigger not the greatest but not bad, and everything is nice and tight.

Danatkins if you need any info or whatever let me know just PM me. Good to know ive inspired people. I had one dude that was mad at me because he has to buy a mini now. Its been good times. It took a lot of research and labor to make my dream mini 14 and im glad I was able to share it with people so if they want to make a mini like this they dont have to go through all the crap research I had to go through.

I have a Mini-14 built very similarly to this! Instead of a nicer wood stock mine just sits in a Hogue overmolded one though, it's nice seeing as it's got aluminum bedding blocks.

Does anyone have a line on the CDNN mags? I bought those ones OP has used and mine was a piece of garbage.

Thanks from Killashrub

I bought about 6 of the CDNN magazines and half of them worked and the other half had to have the feed lips bent slightly. They all work perfectly now. I mostly just own the straight magazines for the "look"

I bought a 183 series new way back when. Your work inspired me to did it out of the safe. Until now the only modification was a Choate M14 style flash suppressor.

I looked at buttplate options and found the M1903 Springfield was very close in size. It also has the tang which wraps over the top of the comb like the early Minis had. I picked up a M1904A3 buttplate and am in process of getting it fitted to the stock. I will have to grind away a little of the buttplate on the sides and at the toe.

I am trying to figure a way to bore a hole for a USGI M1 cleaning kit to be stored under the trapdoor. Not sure I want to try that with the tools I have though. I am a charter member of the wood butcher club.

I will add an M14 front sling swivel using T-nuts inletted in the forend and will add a M1903A3 rear sling swivel.

I will probably stick with the factory wood handguard. I'd like to get the rifle parkerized or otherwise refinished but that ain't in the budget.

Thanks for the inspiration.

Thanks from Killashrub
