Mini-14, Scout.
« on: April 09, 2010, 06:42:02 AM »
Just another Ruger mini-14. Amega Ranges scout rail, Aimpoint 5000 (now I have a 7000 on it), and ProMag 20rnd magazine.



And also, the same rifle in a synthetic stock:



I am also planning on replacing the flip up aperture sight with a Williams WGRS adjustable aperture sight, and the front sight blade with one that thas protective 'wings' as well.
These are old pictures, so off course I have a sling on the rifle now.
I have pointed stick.

Looks good!
"I, Hatchet Jack, being of sound mind and broke legs, do leaveth my rifle to the next thing who finds it, Lord hope he be a white man. It is a good rifle, and kilt the bear that kilt me. Anyway, I am dead. Sincerley, Hatchet Jack."

Does that happen to be a 6.8? I have been fighting that urge for about a year now. Basically since I first heard about them. It looks good, especially with the can.  8)

This is a standard 186-series Mini-14, so the caliber is 5.56x45/.223rem.
The can is a Norwegian made A-Tec. It's really sweet! You might be able to see some small lines around it. It is built up by six modules which can easily be removed for cleaning. This also gives one the possibility to put it together with fewer modules, to make a shorter and lighter silencer. With only the base and one module, it is really short, and looks much like the Noveske tactical flash supressor. With two or three modules, it actually supresses the sound enough to use while hunting without ruining your hearing.
You can see it shooting with two modules in this video.
