Mini-14 factory folding stock?
For a long time I have been trying to find a reasonably priced wood/metal factory folding stock for a mini-14 rifle or at least a lookalike, but have had no luck. I don't know what it is about that stock but I love the way it looks and have to find one.
I want to know if there are any companies that produce folding stocks like the original factory ones from the 80's, or if ruger still even makes them ( I have heard that they do not offer them to general public, but that was like 5 years ago. )
I also want to know if anyone has had experience with these folding stocks and knows if they will fit the newer 580 / 581 series minis.
( I am aware of ATI, butler creek, and a few others that make folders for mini-14 rifles, but they look nothing like the original & are cheesey at best.)
---> So far it seems like the consensus is that you can't really get these stocks anymore for less than $400 (a crap-ton considering how simple it is). I say we all start pestering the heck out of Ruger, to get them to bring back these classic stocks. I am sure they would not lose any money on it considering people are willing to pay hundreds of dollars for a used one.
