    .............and that's why the Mo-Rod, Accu-strut, Har-Bar and others are so effective in controling the barrel whip. I use the Mo-Rod on mine and it has helped to almost eliminate the accuracy and stringing issues that the older thin barrelled Mini's are prone to. I now have consistent 2" groups at 100 yards with 55 gr. ammo, using iron sights, off a bi-pod with my 183-series. :cool:

    I'd like to see this for the newer revisions. My understanding is that the improvements are significant. Cool little rifle. I'm considering something like this later down the road. Looking for a carbine length rifle in a compact sportster style. I've bumped into the Marlin Guide Gun and this Mini-14/30/6.8. Leaning towards the Mini14/30 as I've always thought the M1/M14 style breech was kinda sexy...

    A heads up to anything fitting my above description chambered in medium-small caliber would be appreciated!

    The barrel movement is occurring after the bullet is on it's way.

    Absolutely, The round left the barrel before the barrel moved. I have seen this on a 1919a4 on a loose mount. The weapon is not clamped down, so it moves after its been fired.
