Default Mini-14 Madness.

It's great to find a spot dedicated to the Mini-14, the Mini is one of my all time favorite firearms! I hope it's okay if I post of few pics of mine??

I've got a 186 series stainless dropped in an ATI Strikeforce, topped with a silver 3x9 scope and a newly installed Mo-Rod strut.




And I have a new to me 181 series with no mods "yet" except for a stock refinish in "mean green".

Great looking Mini. I will always rather have a dependale firearm in a fight than one that is great once and must be worked on to repeat. Thanks for sharing...

Thanks guys!

Hey, I have a question for you Mini-14 experts. I'm fairly new to them and the bottom gun in the pics I've had just two weeks or so. It's a 181 series however, it has a plastic hand guard, so I'm wondering if that could be original?? I ask because every 181 series I've looked at so far has had a wooden style handguard.

all of the newer ones have plastic hg's.

i think it sucks, i think the older wooden ones look miles better, but all i ever see are the plastic ones any more.

Hey Glasshartt, nice looking "GB". We have one in the "Blue" finish and have had great succes with it. The "GB" series seem to have a better history of accuracy, what say you?

It's the only one I have fired so I have nothing to judge it against.
