I'm planning on taking it to the range and running rouds thru it from 5 different manufacturers in it's first outing. The last 5 rounds of each type will be from the bench & I plan to keep the targets. I'll bring the gun home, do a complete strip & clean, install the X-Drill strut and then repeat the exercise at the same indoor range....

I'll report the results here once i get it done!
excellent idea. i would run a couple hundred rounds through before you test accuracy though, as a break in period. my mini seemed to improve slightly just as action smoothed out a bit. be sure and check that gas block as well before committing to accuracy tests.

another thing to test would be accuracy with a hot and cold barrel before and after install of accu-strut. i've seen the best result from my strut as the ability to stay consistent after my barrel heats up.

Looks like this thread wilted on the vine a couple years ago. Crickets chirping. I wonder if this new activity will nudge it to the top of a list somewhere...

Anyhow, I have a couple questions:

- The serial number on my (1997) stainless ranch Mini 14 is 195-xxxxx does that make it a "195 series" rifle, or is that determined in some other way?

- Whichever brand strut I buy (Accu or Mo), I'll definitely go with the more stable 2-clamp application vs single. Problem is (or maybe not) my barrel is short, with only 4 1/16" bare between the gas block and the Choate suppressor. With that said, can I slide the front clamp back as far as I need to? It's not fastened at the very front of the strut rod is it? I don't care if there is extra strut sticking out beneath the suppressor.

Thanks in advance for info.
