I recently purchased a new mini 14 tactical that came with the ati stock but being a left handed shooter I can shoot with this stock even modifing it by dremeling the hing to allow my finger to move upward. So I order the hogue stock and noticed that it didn't come with a bottom hear shield. So here is my question I took the heat shield out of the at I stock and used fiber glass resin to glue it in place. Should this be OK for the long run?
I didn't imagine the glass would stick well, so I kind of ignored that issue. You'll find the same issue with bedding compound unless you do it my way. Check out my website for gunsmithing videos (more coming soon) and they'll help you maintain and improve your Mini. And they're free!
