Mini 14
Just thought I would share pictures of my upgraded Mini. I actually used an M1 Garand handguard to replace the black plastic one it came with. Sanded and refinished the stock to a darker color. Modified an M16 buttplate to fit to give it a more military look. Lastly installed the Accurate Systems harmonic barrel stabilizer, mainly for looks. What do y'all think?

Looks like it should have left the factory that way . Much better looking Mini 14 . Bob

Looks sharp!

Hope you don't mind asking--why the extra screw on butt plate?

I had to remove so much material that the hinge/ swivel was no longer usable so just made it easier to secure it.

Looks great! One of my goals is to refinish my mini14 stock.

It looks much more like a military rifle.

I dig it.

Looks good! How does it shoot? I played around with Mini 15 years ago, tried just about every "trick" or aftermarket upgrade, and I never could get the thing to shoot worth a damn. Bought my first M1 shortly thereafter, and never looked back. My M1's will outshoot that old Mini every time. Scope on the Mini14, and irons on the garand

Very nicely done. Hope it shoots as nice as it looks.

in my humble opinion...that's the best looking Mini-14 I have ever seen. Love it.
