I posted this in "Art of the Rifle" before realizing this thread existed. Thanks for any help or ideas.

Does anyone have a good Mini-14/rifle gunsmith in mind? I want have some work done on mine and rather than reinvent the wheel by trying to explain what I want to the locals here, I'd like to send it off to someone who knows what the heck I want.
All I'm looking right now is to shorten the barrel to 16.25 inches, add a Vortex flash suppressor and relocate the front site.

Also, any suggestions about the front site? I get along fine with the original, but what about adding a military-style one with protective wings. Anyone suggest a decent manufacturer of such an animal?

DW, contact Randy at Connecticut Precision Chambering. They do great work on the minis. They have a website but I had some problems this weekend and lost everything. Just use your search engine. George
