Stand by for the AR-Mini haters:thumb: I have a 582 series and love it also have a couple of M-4 Carbine builds and a 24" HB AR-15 build, Love them too. I am always on the look out for used Mini-14's now. Barrel stabilizer any of the major 3 MO-ROD, ACCU STRUT OR TRU-SHOT WILL WORK IMHO. 1911 BUFFERS. Do you know what the twists are on yours my weapons manuals are locked up and I am being lazy today, your rifles twist will help determine what grain bullet might work best. 77 grn open tip match followed by 64 grn federal Hog specials seems to shoot the best in mine, which has a 1-9 twist. Did they come with the original wood stock? or did previous owner put after market stock on? IMHO I would not shoot Russian steel cased ammo out of them. Ask away and stand by for the HATE:upsidedown:Doing the Mini 14 thing now. Picked up a 186 and a 181 . load me up with info . Been a GB fan boy These are my first ones .
