    Mini 14

    Hi guys,

    this is my goat gun what I was DIY-ing on the last few weeks. She started her life as a Target rifle with the laminate stock, the previous owner got the barrel turned down and suppressed it plus changed the stock.
    When I bought it a year ago it came with a 6 round mag and a small scope. So ordered a 5 shot factory mag, tweaked it so it takes 6 rounds. Polished the old, worn finish off the Gunworks suppressor and re sprayed it. I gave the metal parts a green coat, sprayed the handle the same grey as the supp. (just to be different)
    I bought a Minox ZV3 BDC 3-9 x 40 to go on it but to be able to put it on I had to create some clearance between the plastic guard and the scope. I had to completely sand off the knob on the top of the hand guard. Finally a new swivel stud was added so I can use my bipod without any adapter.

    Its a good little rifle shoots .87" cold and around 1.75" hot with 55 gr SP flavored Hornady.
    My only regret is I never made any closeup pictures before spraying.

    Nothing is tough about having a 70 lb bow and looking like an uncoordinated praying mantis while trying to draw it back.

    Nice job mate, but removing the anodizing off the suppressor you may compromise the strength of the suppressor tube. Neat mod you have done though
