I thought that this was a great thread, too. I have a couple of Minis that I plan to do a few modifications to. There are a lot of changes I would like, but I haven't totally settled on anything. Because of the current buying frenzy, some of the changes I want to make may not be possible.
Anyhow, thank you 7.62X39. You did a lot of good work and I'm glad that you showed it to us.
