Choate Recoil Compensator for MINI 14
Requires 2 1/2 inches of free barrel length.
- Made of solid Steel.
- Replaces the front sight.
- Permanently attaches to the barrel with a 1/8 dia spring steel roll pin.
- 2 roll pins supplied (one is extra).
- Best if installed by a gunsmith.
1 - The front sight must be removed by driving out the roll pin and then driving the sight off of the barrel with a brass or copper punch while placing it on a hardwood surface. The sight band can be removed by filing or grinding it in two. This will allow the sight to fall off.
2 - Put the compensator on the barrel and tighten the set screw (shown on bottom of unit)after aligning the sight properly. The alignment must be verified before the next step.
3 - Drill the roll pin hole using one drill size under 1/8, then finish to size with a 1/8 drill. (this process will prevent oversize roll pin hole). There is a predrilled starter hole on the underside of the unit which makes it almost impossible to get the roll pin mis-located.
4 - Since the rifle must be squared up with a level for alignment and the drilled hole must be straight through, we recommend yout local gunsmith for this job.
OD = .666, ID = .562 at the barrel end.
