    Done

    Got this project out of mothballs and finished it.
    I wanted one with a more Americanized look so I went with what I thought a USGI mini would look like. "FIRE" and "SAFE" instead of "F" and "S". Same with the identifying marks on sheet metal and lower grip assy.
    Smaller cocking knob and a round, knurled windage adjusting knob that doesn't require a special key.
    Parkerizing instead of paint seemed a more typical US finish, so here it is.

    Excellent job! Looks great. The finish looks good. Leaving it as a pistol or adding a stock?

    Thanks, cajun.
    Nope, it was born a pistol and that's what it'll stay. Too much hassle otherwise.

    Aww duke, 'Idiot' is such a strong word. I prefer 'Still looking forward to the next project'. Only downside is the current market making parts harder to find and pricey.
    You just might find the mini is Goldilocks-size... not too big and not too small.

    Damn nice work.

    I always wanted to get one "for my wife"!! She loved the full size but complained it was too heavy after a while shooting! Oh well, probably never happen now!

    Thanks for sharing the pics!

    Good job. Looks like it came in a box right, from the store.

    Fabulous work! Imagining that since it is a pistol you started with a "repair" channel? So as to not have to pull the blocking bar, etc?

    The Mini does not have the blocking bar.
