  • GAS BLOCK FOR MINI-14

    Hey, guys! I'm a new member here, and I like your forum. You have lots of good info. keep up the good work!!! I want to choke down the gas bushing in the gas block on my mini-14. Does anybody have any idea how small the hole may need to be for a starting point?

    No... don't know the dimensions of a reduce bushing. The reduced sets don't seem to expensive though.

    If you have the gear handy to make new bushings, why not make a few in 5 or 10 hundredths increments and try them out at the range?

    ... Then again, someone here might be able to give you precise measurements. (don't have any reduced bushings to measure - sorry)

    ps.. Welcome!

      Good idea, I'll try that. I'm a Machinist by trade and I try to do all the smithing I can myself. But, some things scare me!
      THANKS for the idea!

        Happy Experimenting!

        As long as you keep your outer shape the same as the original and the ID between the stock bushing and 0.0, you should have no problems. Making the hole bigger doesn't serve and purpose except to beat the crap out of your action, and if the hole is too small, well, it just will not cycle properly. I don't forsee any big problems.
