I have been kicking this idea around for a bit. I have an oem wood stock on my mini.

If I installed a small mount rail just behind the gas block assembly. I could mount a 1 1/4 sling swivel and a bipod, without too much issue.

Any problems with this?

Anyone else done this?

Harris makes an adapter for their bipod that gives you the bipod and sling. I have mounted a scope base on my 10-22 stock and it works fine for a rail mounted bipod so I dont see why it would not work on a mini.

I have heard of several people using the Harris mount and it works well. I used a T nut from a local hardware store, I thiink the thread size is 10-32 on the studs. I drill a hole about 2" back from the gas block, inserted the T nut under the liner. I had to cut the stud length down a little so it would fit under the liner, then used loctite to secure.

Gundoc has my rifle right now, so I am currently going through withdrawal (haha). I will have to look at the Harris adapter and the T nut.

Thanks guys!

I've put a small rail on mine, and will be attaching a clamp with a qd swivel for a harris bipod when I'm not using the "tactical" fore-end grip. The grip has proved it's worth when taking field shots from the seated or one knee positions. The suppressor is absolutely awesome I might add:)

I believe I will use the T nut idea. Thanks for that.

Since you won't be putting as much pressure on the gas block, does this help with accuracy?

Just curious.

That's just cool. :cool:

And that picture is going to end up costing me a lot of money one day.

I always like the the front vertical fore grip. It give you much better control over the weapon. Even though this picture is of the Mini-14's big brother (AC556), I do swap the stock to my Min-14 Ranch rifle some times.
