View Full Version : Mini 14 stuff (again)

May 6, 2010, 10:37 AM
Ok, if this has been covered already, I apologize.

I had stated in another thread that after I scoped my mini it seemed like my groups had opened a bit....I finally got a lot wind opportunity yesterday afternoon to recheck my zero, every things good. so the only issue probably was all the roaring winds I have had this spring pushing me around.

I had to set up my improvised rang real quick; an upside down bucket to set on, and my tail gate.

I only marked off 50yds but all twenty shots hit the bull with all groups touching each other. I used a hodge-podge of different russian ammo.

I am satisfied that I probably don't need a barrel stabilizer.

However the muzzle rise and recoil seems to gotten a little harsher since its been broken in.

I was going to start out with a muzzle brake .

I can't seem to find out if one exists to fit a late 2009 Ranch, there's a lot of debate on other forums about the barrel diameter changing again 2008.
If anyone knows definitively?

Do you live in a state where its legal to just thread the end of the barrel?? Then you could choose what brake you want. That's what I'm gonna do with mine.
