have a couple red dots and a reflex i may try out on it...but plan on going open sight...Stu925, very nice older woman that im doing some remodel work for wouldnt take more than a hundred bucks for it...going to knock a couple hundred extra off my bill for her though
Good that way you both get a good deal and you get good gun karma. I've been looking for a factory folder but I've only seen one at a gun show and it was over priced. Those stocks would make a good consolation prize for not being able to find a factory folder.

nice looking Mini-14 you got there, my advise to you is not do anything to that mini that can't easily undone, cuz if it has to go back to Ruger any doodads ect. that aren't Ruger OME, kiss them goodbye.

The scope on mine is a NcStar 4x32 and the model is GB model, and it is the front site in the middle of the barrel with bayonet lug underneath

I don't know what you paid for the Mini-14, but you could sell that stock and probably get the Mini-14 for close to free!

That is a very cool stock. Like others said, can the scope. Better yet, sell the scope and the stock, and buy an original Ruger folding stock for it - then you will have the real deal "GB" model.

I paid $415 for that mini, i always liked the folding stock on the GB models, but they always sold for close to $400 or more on ebay and gunbroker

So, if you could get $250+ for that folding stock and maybe another $50+ for the scope, throw in another $100 cash and you will have a genuine Mini GB for $515! That's like having $600 in your back pocket.

Or, keep it the way it is - that underfolding stock still looks great on the Mini-14.

For $100 you cant beat that. I would ditch the scope though, just seems unfitting. Maybe set it up with a red dot or get a nice pair of irons for it.
