For your Ruger Mini-14 Harmonizer, Accurizer, Accessorzer!
This unit adds support to the thin factory barrel, and an adjustable "harmonic balancer".
This is a multi function unit that will keep your thin factory mini 14 barrel straight when it gets hot and wants to sag, or droop. Just putting it onto your mini [as per instructions below] will cut your down range groups by half for most. For those of you that have to have more, and like to experement. The forward clamp can be moved "forward to rear" until you achieve perfect harmonization of "your" barrel, with whatever particular ammo you are using. Ammo changes [ weight,manufacture,etc.] may require readjustment of the harmonizer clamp for "optimum" accuracy. This is the base unit for accurizing your Ruger mini 14.
Barrel support begins with the strong three point [ triangular ] base.
The Har-Bar rod on the gas block is the first point of the three point [triangular] support system, and the rod has two stainless steel set screws to secure it to the gas block [no modifications to your rifle are necessary]. The rear barrel to rod clamp is point #2 & #3. This triangular base creates a ridged rod / platform to attach the forward clamp / harmonizer to. This supports the thin factory barrel as it heats up and wants to sag. This sagging is called stringing. This phonomon is when your bullet impact drops down from your point of aim . The Har-Bar helps to eliminate that. In addition the forward clamp / harmonizer will cut your down range groups about 50% @ 100 yds. Moving this forward clamp to different positions on the barrel may tighten your groups even further when you find your mini-14's "sweet" spot. Your mini will shoot differently with different bullet weight, bullet type, and bullet manufacturer Once you have determined what your mini shoots the best,. ...Then add the Har-Bar to tighten your groups dramaticly....
The barrel to bar clamps are machined precisely to fit the RugerŪ mini-14 factory barrel only. Once clamped in place makes an extremely tight / solid fit. In addition...The aircraft quality aluminum clamps act as heatsinks. They draw heat off the barrel, further helping to stabilize it.
The ammo used here was "silver bear 55 gr" & "seller& bellot 55 gr. The bear seemed to hit higher than the s&b. Scope used was 3x-9x, 40 wide angle Bushnell stalker.
The basic assembly with the laser clamp, and the flashlight clamp added weighs less than one pound. The basic unit adds only 7.oz. to your mini. That is much lighter than any of the bull barrel accurizing systems. Also consider that if you shoot enough to wear out your bull system. You have to send it in to the armory and pay more $$$ "again" to get your [ HEAVY ] accurate barrel replaced . With the Har-Bar harmonizing barrel brace system all you do is unscrew the assembly and get a factory barrel for much less $$$ than a bull. Then screw the Har-bar back on to your fresh factory barrel . Each time you have to replace a barrel you save even more, leaving extra $$$$$$ for more ammo. So if you want to carry that extra weight arround. Carry more ammo. Not a heavy barrel. It's not necessary. More ammo = more fun! So have more fun. Buy a Har-Bar... and "hit" what you're aiming at..!!!
The Har-Bar will come with the clamps rubber banded to the rod to allow you to just spread the barrel end of the clamp apart and slip it over the barrel without removing it from the rod. FIRST. Spread the two clamp halves nearest to the gas block apart , and onto the barrel. At the same time slide the slotted end of the rod onto the gas block making sure the short end of the slot is down. Then spread the front clamp halves onto the barrel. Next add the screws, but "do not" tighten yet. Push the rod tight to the gas block and snug the screws. Then slide the rear clamp tight to the block and snug. Next snug the front clamp. When you are satisfied with the alignment tighten all the screws. The rest should be easy.......... Just go shoot some bulls eyes.......... E mail email@example.com with any assembly , or other questions.

Received the Har-Bar today!!! Wow, was that ever fast!! I went and installed the Har-Bar as per instructions and fastened everything down with lock tite and then gave it a few hours to cure. I must say that it made the Mini look fierce. I ventured to the local range and set up four targets at 60 yards (because the snow was over knee deep) as I wanted to try four of my best handloads. The first was 60 grain Hornady softpoints over a carefully loaded dose of BLC-2. Bang, Bang, Bang - just like that - one inch group. What the??? This thing actually works! I let the barrel cool for a couple of minutes and loaded my next magazine with 64 grain power points - same powder. 2.0 inch group. I thought, "not bad". Next up was my all time best performer in any .223 I have used it in. The famed 69 grain Sierra match bullet with - you guessed it, BLC-2. Bam, Bam, Bam. I had to look twice, then three times. Under half an inch. Perfect little triangle. I will be buying more of those bullets. Final group was to come from my coyote load. 55 grain Sierra boat tail with W748 powder. This one has been dynamite in the past. Three shots in rapid succession. Two holes??? I was scratching my head. The holes were about 1/8th inch apart, but where was the third. I examined the target closer. TWO THROUGH ONE HOLE!!! The Har-Bar is the answer for Canadian Mini 14 owners!!!!
Thanks for the great product. If you ever need something tested, send it my way.
