I've always been a Mini-14 fan. Good, solid, nice-looking guns. If they only had chrome lined barrels, they'd be perfect. Well, Ruger was one of the first to come out with an all stainless .223, so maybe he didn't see any need for a chrome lined barrel.
Anyway, the stocks on those two Mini-14's in the link have me mesmerized - They can't be factory, or if they are, someone got derned lucky!!!
