list your top five
list your top 5 additions to the mini 14 platform. these product could be related to looks, accuracy, accessories, optics, cleaning.....whatever you think a new mini owner should invest in.....:).....provide links, pics...whatever you want to do.

if you exceed 5....put the products (over 5) in your "honorable mention" section. :cool:....hopefully this could provide good info for mini newbies....

i have come across many good products for the mini over the years. if i had to choose 5 it would likely be:

1) WARNE QD rings: this just makes sense imo. not only a great product, but very handy in removing the scope for cleaning while maintaining very close to zero. great at the range to when you want some time with scope AND irons.

2) choate hand guard: although my true love will always be for the old school wood hand guards, the choate is definately a second best imo (and at a great cost). dump that ugly factory number ASAP imo.

3) accu-strut: does what a strut is supposed to do for a mini (accuracy improvement, heat sink) and i appreciate the thorough testing accu-strut did to prove their product.

4) specter gear 2 point sling: love it! fits the looks of the mini and works well imo.

5) ANY flexible cleaning rod: will save you a headache cleaning imo.

honorable mentions: ruger factory mags (only ones worth having imo), wilson 1911 buffers, redfield revolution 2-7 scope (good glass, perfect fit), john masen recoil pad (for looks), wipeout bore cleaner, hornady v-max ammo (very accurate in my gun).

will report back if i missed somethin'! :D

good input, guys....keep it coming!

this was kinda what i expected and hoped for. some the best, most reliable products/addition keep re-appearing in different posters lists....:)....some great input for the new mini owner.

if there are any less popular, yet effective additions....add it to this thread.

p35bhp55;1471345]1. Gundoc trigger job.

2. Glass bedded stock.
good choices! these have always, imo....stayed among the most "go to" mods for mini 14 accuracy. i think many MINI newbies need to be aware of the legend GUN DOC. :)


5. Inch lb. torque wrench. (For gas block)
useful for fixing your gas block, and once you have a torque wrench you end using it for so many different things.

good additions! :)
