There's seveal dif strut rods on the market that were invented to help improve the accuracy of the Mini's. I didn't really have an accuracy issue with mine as it seemed to be a good shooter. From what I've read; the thin barrel Mini's have an issue of stringing bullets when the barrels heat up. The strut seems to combat this issue in stabilizing the barrel, and working like a heatsink to cool the barrel.
But, I dunno...
I just ended up with this one because; I know Kelly the owner of Mo-Rod from another forum, and he harassed me about my mini being nakid until I finally bought one from him. They cost around $80 plus shipping. And yeah, they are styled to look kinda like a M14.
