Turtled means a cocker has been converted to a halfblock. Turtle Innovations was one of the better-known machinists who did this conversion, thus the name.

Mini'd means that the cocker body has been cut down in front almost flush with the barrel threads. The ASA is threaded to the frontblock, unlike a normal cocker where the ASA mates to the body behind the frontblock.

^ I believe your answer is correct 'cause they both pertain to 'Cockers, but a "turtle" can also be a dude who knows he's about to get bunkered and goes into a fetal position LOL!

so please correct me if I'm wrong but in lymens terms:

Turtled or halfblocked is when you shorten the back of the body?

Mini'd is cutting excess off the front, bottom half of the body were the front block attaches, and attach the asa to the front block?

Close. The turtling or halfblocking shorten the UPPER tube of the body and replaces the back block on a cocker with a shorter bolt and a slide that has a pin that passes down into the hammer compartment and pushes the hammer back to cock it rather than the normal cocking rod that's pulled back by the back block. But in any event the lower portion that holds the hammer, spring and IVG stays the same length or gets only a minimal shortening by a few threads.

Do a google for "halfblock pic" and look at the pictures that show up. There may be some on the MCB gallery as well.
