As I've stated before, I would never discourage a do-it-yourselfer from doing great things, but nearly all of the homemade barrel stabilizers I have seen have only a 2-point anchor, the two points being the clamps attaching it to the barrel. This would be the same if those clamps from CTD are used. Finding a way to achieve 3-point anchoring (2 barrel clamps + 1 gas block connection) will give superior results over just the 2 barrel clamp connections. My own barrel stabilizer project initially began with a 2-point system, but ultimately morphed into a much better 3-point design. It's not all that easy unless one is equipped with at least an end mill. My partner & I are now cranking out a variety of our stabilizers to fit the growing variety of Mini-14's & Mini-30's on the market. Long live the do-it-yourselfer, but sometimes it's nice to capitalize on someone else's prior efforts by avoiding all the trial & error. Discounts? ...always to active military & LE, and often to my friends as well...I can be talked into it as long as Mo-Rod remains more of a hobby than a livelihood...


By the way, the clamp you were asking about is probably the UTG or Leapers Tri-Rail Accessory Barrel Clamp. It's on ebay & Amazon, as well as some regular Internet suppliers.

You can always try the method of accurizing a Mini-14 that I found about 23 years ago. It also improves reliability, looks cooler and allows much more accessorizing...It is called "Buy an AR-15".

Sorry, (kind of) I just had to say it. To each his own. Trying to make a rifle do what it was not designed to do is challenging and expensive.
I was pleased to be a part of this forum because I thought this sort of "Buy an AR" baloney was not tolerated over here. And now a moderator is posting this??? And, saying that accurizing a Mini-14 is "challenging and expensive" is absolutely untrue. There are several easy fixes for the Mini that are not expensive at all.

There is nothing COOLER about an AR-15 in my eyes, sorry (kind of)

Politically correct? That's certainly the first time I've ever been accused of that. And, it doesn't even apply here. My point is that I was pleased that this forum was purposely set up with an AR section separate from the Mini-14 section. I thought (silly me) that this was done for the distinct purpose of minimizing "flaming", like your post. When a guy starts a thread because he wants to improve his Mini-14, there is nothing more unproductive than all the AR fans chiming in with "You should have bought an AR instead" posts. If the moderators are going to initiate this sort of baloney (and then defend it when challenged about it), the problem will only get worse in a hurry. You should not be a moderator, robocop10mm.
