Default Trigger Job

Hey guys
Got my Mini Back from Gun Doc. It doesn't feel like the same rifle. You guys are well aquanted with the stock trigger. Pressure, more pressure, more pressure............ok I cant keep the target in sight because I'm firing off hand. rinse repeat.

Now its pressu(BANG)re. Loving it. I had tons of stuff changed around and mostly kept the "stock" wood and steel look. Amega ranges hand guard, stainless gas tube, choate flash hider/front sight, and Doc's Accuracy package A.



I'm still 6" pattern at 100 yards, 10 rounds. Shooting prone, supported, iron sites (that target is sooo small). But thats all me, not the mini. Dang the bad luck, I have to keep going to the range to practice >.<

I left my red dot off this trip, to zero my iron sights. I mounted it when I finished cleaning. Zeroing that next weekend.

The cheapest I found it was $150. I bought it for my red dot ($50) go figure, and possibly a flashlight on the side. Anyway, that dang thing gets HOT!
I'm interested to see what it does to my red dot next weekend.

Keep ya posted

Great looking Mini! I really like the Choate flash hider, I've had one on my Mini for more years than I can remember, always thought it looked better on a Mini than most of the other FH/MB's out there.

Thanks.
I like the looks of it too. The big deciding factor was, that it came with a front sight that is thinner than that big ole fat thumb that was originally on the rifle. The fact that it has no ports on the bottom so it acts as a compensator, is just icing on the cake.

What rear sight are you using, the stock sights or aftermarket?

I was kind of considering the trigger job that Nutnfancy had done to his Mini-14:
