I've got Wilson Combat Shok-Buffs (intended for 1911s) front and rear in my 2008 580 series, and have had no problems with under-gassing (due to the buffer on the gas block) or failure to lock open....

I'm gonna side with myname here. Warne QD rings would allow use of irons and bolt removal. Sure, they're a bit pricey, but when you factor in the price of a decent rail (Warne or GG&G) and a decent...

The only bullpup I've seen for the Mini is the Muzzelite, and their quality appears to be, well, non-existent. All plastic, even the trigger. Not "polymer" like you'd make a rifle stock from,...

Another vote for mag-related issues. I've never run Tula through my Mini, but I know that the one no-name mag someone gave me caused more FTFs than I thought possible.

I quickly trashed it so...
