    Just another new guy that likes guns.

    About a month ago I was given a 182 series mini 14 that was damaged in a fire. I bought a new barrel and stock for it, and restored all of the other parts, then took the rifle to a gunsmith to have the barrel replaced and head spaced.

    The gunsmith got it all back together and said it shoots real good. I have not shot it yet, there are a couple more thing I want to do before I consider it done, then I will take it out and shoot it myself.

    So, that`s my story, so far.

    Welcome from the South East Texas Gulf Coast. Glad to have you here on the forum with us.
    We talk about most everything, sometimes even guns.

    When your Mini 14 is finished, we would be happy to get a range report. :D

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Once I get my mini 14 done, I will post some pictures of it in the Mini 14 forum.
