Default 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.

It looks much more like a military rifle.

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

I haven't shot it since I finished it up, will do that Saturday. I put a total of 10 rounds through it before and it was looking very accurate but that was with open sights. This is a newer model which are supposed to be much more accurate. I'll report back after my range trip.
