We had a pretty easy winter here in Montana. I probably could have made it up to my range
sooner, but have got a jump start on yard projects, been fixing up an older pickup I bought,
and bought a new ...

boomhauer, an early 90's Mini would be a pencil barrel (.560" diameter).These are helped
greatly by putting a strut under the barrel. Most guys find a 35-40% accuracy improvement, and
with a strut you...

That's a good idea. JTJ. Flip up sights for AR's are made in a couple different heights for
same plane or for gas block mounting so you could try omr and see if it matched your front
sight height clos...

I am wondering if the rear sight replacement mount for the FF3 would allow a rail mounted rear

Lol ! I was gonna say the same thing yesterday, hawk, but refrained from being a wiseass !

I would not give up my rear iron sight to use the Rages mount. I would either use the Ultimak
to mount my FF III or the factory rail like hawkguy's set up if you have a newer Mini that came
with the r...

thinking about it....i think (without actually using it ;)) that the FF on the ultimak LOOKS
