How it works
Accu-strut will generally fit on any series Mini-14 or Mini-30, except for some
use a version of the gas block that does not incorporate a center flange. The strut will still install on these models, but note that
there will be no place to attach the rear set-screws. This may lead to a
slippage problem with no easy way to fix.
Models with a Factory Folding Stock
also have a special version of the gasblock that have a side attachment
point for the sling, and either no center flange or a center
flange with a smaller width than standard. Again, no rear attachment
point, and possible slippage problems.
It was originally reported that the current Mini-30 also has a
larger barrel diameter than earlier models, and the clamps will again not
fit. (Older Mini-30s w/.625" barrels are OK.) UPDATE: Some of our
customers have reported successful installations with the clamps "straddling"
the barrel (a "pinch-grip"). This will leave a gap towards the middle of the clamp that will
not affect performance.
Target Model has an extra heavy barrel. Our
custom-designed (5/8") clamps will not accomodate this larger diameter.

Clamps will straddle the newer models with .782" barrel, leaving a slight
gap between the clamp and barrel that will not affect performance.
