Barrel strut for Mini-14 and Mini-30 rifles. Provides mechanical rigidity for thin carbine barrel, reducing accuracy-killing vibrations. The 6-inch 2-clamp configuration gives your best opportunity for performance increases. Typical improvement is 50-75% reduction in group size for earlier straight-barrel rifles, and up to 33% on the new tapered barrels. Your actual experience will vary.

  • Undamped, lightweight version of the original Accu-strut.

  • Also significantly aids in barrel over-heating problems, reduces load sensitivity, and enhances the appearance of your Mini.

  • Proprietary Flex-clamp design accomodates newer tapered barrels, an Accu-strut exclusive.

  • Available in black oxide (“blued”), stainless steel, or combination finish.


  • Length: 5-7/8"
  • Weight: 8.0 oz

The Accu-strut will generally fit on any series Mini-14 or Mini-30, except for some important exceptions:

  • Early Minis 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.

  • Early GB models with folding stock and the newest Mini 14 tactical Model 5895 with Walnut folding stock have a special version of the gasblock that have a side attachment point for the sling, and no center flange. Again, no rear attachment point, and possible slippage problems.

2-Clamp Models (LT, XDrill)












Harris bipod adaptor
: strut sits forward a bit to accommodate "forks". May not be able to use the rear set-screws.

ASI Tuneable Gas Block: The Accu-strut will not work with this product due to interference with the adjustment screw.

Ultimak rail: Rear clamp must be shifted forward a bit to clear extended rail.

Amega Ranges rail: installs with no modification.

    Looks great - pain in the butt to install

    Posted by Matt on May 8th 2024

    I have a 580+ series Mini 14, so I bought this purely for aesthetics. I was hoping install would be a little easier, but it proved to be a real pain in the butt. Between trying to get the measurements straight, and working with the syringe full of "loctite" - I'm really hoping I did it right. The instructions appeared to be photocopied, and it wasn't a great photocopy, so it was super blurry. That made for a real challenge as well. In terms of appearance, I'm thrilled with how it came out, I'm just really hoping that it lasts/stays attached without loosening up and walking. Would I buy it again if I had to? Probably. But I might also take it to a Smith's to get it professionally installed.

    This product is a game changer for older Mini 14s. My 183 series mini 14 now shoots 2" groups when it used to string out to 7 to 8"
