Thanks Hawkguy.....

My Mini has been modified as follows:

Fed-Ord hand guard painted brown
Tech-Sites rear sights
Accu-stut SOCOM (blued out the logo)
Muzzle brake with sight

I then aged the finish with steel wool, sanded and stained the wood, and added a M14 style strap. I am also using John Masen magazine because even though it is a legal 10 rd body, it seems to be a bit longer than most.

Here is the side by side comparison of my results:
