Default Mo-Reaper Initial Run at Discount Price

We've received some excellent input from several posters here on this forum, and now we are moving forward into our first production run of 25 Mo-Reaper units to fit the traditional (aka "pencil") barrel Mini-14's. These will be our first-ever produced from 7075 T-6 Alloy, and we will offer them at a discount to members of the PerfectUnion as a way of saying thanks for the great feedback. Our price for this first run is $88 per unit (same as our Mo-Rod price). After these 25 units, the price will likely be $108 per unit. I'm taking reservations right now until we send them in for hard anodizing. That process will be followed by a final baked-on finish. Just send me a pm or email if you want your name added to the reservations list, and thanks again to all who contributed good input toward this product development...

"... we will offer them at a discount to members of the PerfectUnion as a way of saying thanks for the great feedback."

Shame on you.

Gotta say, they look really nice. I love the adjustable front post sight, 100 times better than the stock front sight.
You open sight shooters should love this attachment.

Good price also, on heck of a lot of machine work to make one and I'm sure more than a little initial R&D costs.

It's really nice to see more quality parts being made for the Mini.
I wish the Mini would get to be more like the 10-22 where you can build one without using a single Ruger manufactured part

Are you going to offer them with a black finish also at some point for an additional cost and are you plannining on a screw on model for the new Mini's at some point ? Just a thin barrel nut to go behide for alignment and you would be all set.
I know the expenses involved, but when you are able to swing it, one for the new model would be great also.

I'll be watching intently for a model designed to fit the newer barrels. They look great.

From the above photo to the one below...All that is left for these is the porting & hard anodizing & they'll be ready for mounting on some Mini-14's. If any of you guys are interested in one of these first-run units, I'm still offering a discount to members on this forum...
