Sandog, looking at your pic, by installing the Socom, it's shorter than the standard Accustrut with only one clamp and thus avoid clamping it to the tapered portion of the new style barrel? Makes sense.

Yes. My two Mini=30's despite being older ones, have a .625" barrel, where older Mini-14's had the .560" "pencil barrel". So I figured the single clamp model would be sufficient. The shorter Socom w/ single clamp is better looking IMO.
I suppose you could use the two clamp model on your tapered barrel and just put the back clamp forward of the taper. The single clamp one would be enough on your heavier barrel Mini though.
Regardless of which one you choose, do the 'dimple option", as outlined in the instructions that come with the clamp. It really ties the whole unit into the gas block and makes the strut more effective.

Will do. I had my gunsmith install the last one on my Mini-14, and it really has made a difference at the range. As a reminder, here's how it looks:




As for the flash suppressor, I'm thinking I'll go with Choate, as I'm not quite ready to have the barrel threaded. How difficult was it to install on your Mini-30?

Not hard to do. Read my reply #9 above as to how to ensure it is on straight before drilling. That Ruger steel is hard, go buy a new Cobalt bit ( or two ) for the project.

Daaa, sorry you already did answer that question. Frankly, I'm a bit torn what to do with the flash suppressor. I was in the gun shop talking about it with the guy behind the counter, and he was adamant that I get the barrel threaded so that I can have future use of a silencer... That makes sense too. Decisions, decisions.

My pleasure.
With my 62grn FMJ handloads it's deadly on bowling pins and clay pigeons at 200yds with irons. Absolutely my most favorite .223/5.56 to shoot even though I have 3 ARs and my son's Savage Model 10.



It's as much fun (and cheaper to shoot) than it's brothers.

Any of you heard of AMK Tactical? It looks like they make a pretty good muzzle break for the Mini. The price and guarantee look pretty good too...

Flash Hider

Hey everyone. I don't know how to post a new thread so I'm asking here. Will the blued flash hider that's for sale on shop Ruger work on the stainless ranch model mini 30? Does it look good? It's a 580 series tapered barrel.

I didn't see a flash hider on sale. Do you mean this one ?
.30 Caliber Flash suppressor 5/8"-24 Short - Blued-ShopRuger
That one, or the stainless one like it for $10 more, will fit.
While a long cage would be more effective for night shooting, I'm liking the new short cage model.
