    Have had a Mini-14 since the mid 80's. Very good shooter even with the awful huge blade front sight. It'll wear out the 9 & 10 rings at both 25 and 50 yds. Recently got/installed a Tapco stock. Installation was no problem, it went right on. Using the iron sights, initial group was half-dollar sized about 5 o'clock in the 8 ring. Now the bad news. Aside from the factory 5 rounder, only two of my six magazines would fit. And I couldn't zero my Red Dot. Was shooting inside, had no idea where or how bad I was missing the target. Reinstalled the wood stock, mags all fit and zero was right there. Anyone else have any similar issues with Tapco stocks?
