Mini 14 Muzzle Brake

I'm a new member so here goes.
Got my 581 series Stainless Mini 14 a couple of months ago. Am sure this has been discussed before, but wanna put a muzzle brake on it. Talked to a nearby gunsmith, he wanted to thread the barrel and put on an AR type brake. I really don't want to thread the barrel and I want to keep the iron front sight. Is there a mfg out there that makes one. Also I really don't like the way the rear sight adjusts. Any other options for the rear sight?

There are options out there. For your rear sight, There is a company called Tech-Sights that make a real nice rear sight for the Mini.
Tech-SIGHTS Precision Shooting Accessories

As for muzzle breaks/ flash hiders. You have the Mo-Reaper that is a complete slip on break and front sight.
MO-ROD

Then there is True Shot Technologies...
TRUE SHOT TECHNOLOGIES HOME PAGE

I would check those out and go from there. The Mo-Reaper is a nice product and Kelly is a great dude (the designer). I have a version of the Mo-Reaper and its fit a finish is top notch and installation couldn't of be easier.

There is also the John Masen slip on. Slips over the front ramp sight.

And, I almost forgot about this rear sight, from ASI. Its an M1A style of rear sight. Its about half way down the page.

Thanks I'll check these out and post a pic if I get it set up. All the brakes I saw were for pre 2005 Minis

I have the same problem. The only breaks I've seen for the new ranch rifles are ones that include a sight on them.

I bought the Mo Reaper muzzle break for my Mini 30 works and looks great.

All are made for the new heavy tappered barrel. They also make them for the thin barrel.

I heard rummors of a Sightless Mo-Reaper muzzle break being made soon. Great for those Mini's with scope's. Slip off the front ramp sight, slip on the sightless Mo-Reaper and pin it on using the same roll pin slot.

I've seen a prototype. Really nice muzzle break. Nice clean look.

Is the Mo-Reaper hooded sight to tall for a scope to be mounted? Does anybody know?

Many people who have the Mo-Reaper installed, also are using scopes, with no conflict between the two.

Glad Kelly posted a pic of the Sightless Mo-Reaper. I got one last month, and wasn't sure if it had been released yet. Its a nice setup as you can see on my 185 Series Mini. Easy to install, looks really good and I'm sure, will perform nicely.

With the ammo shortage, I haven't got the spare ammo to go shooting to test.

My personal preference. Mo-reaper with hooded site.

I can see the top of the hood in the very bottom of the scope. It is like a little blur, but it does not bother me. I sometimes take the scope off to shoot so i am happy. If i had a second scoped Mini i think i would go hoodless. To me the black on stainless looks good, I got the silver for my SS mini and the black i think looks better.

And like in Jack's instance, if your experienced the same, you can go with the next highest ring Ruger makes. I belive its low, med, high and extra high for ring heights.

The black does contrast nicely with the stainless Jack. I really like the looks of it on my stainless. Especially with the matte black stock I have.

A few more shots of the sightless muzzle break.

The mini's are so fun to shoot. Even with the ammo shortage i still shoot mine. I think the mo reaper drops the recoil 20-30% i can fire and never loose the target in the scope.
