What has Wood Stock and takes AR-15 Mags?

I've seen a few different rifles that take AR-15 magazines now. When considering a new rifle, that's a really nice touch. AR-15 mags are affordable and relatively common. So I was wondering. Is there a decent semi-automatic option for guys who like traditional wood stocks?

Mini 14's don't take AR mags, but they're ubiquitous enough that cost won't really be an issue. It's nice to have standardized mags, but in the pursuit of good wood stocks

There's some AK variants that I've seen in 5.56 and take STANAG magazines.

Thanks, guys. I didn't even know that was an option.

Considering how plentiful and cheap AR magazines are, I'm surprised nobody makes an adapter for the mini 14.

Turnbull used to make an AR with a wood stock.
Here is one on GB: https://www.gunbroker.com/item/849202357

Pricey but pretty.

Windham makes both 5.56 and 308 AR's with wood--I'd take a close look at these. https://www.windhamweaponry.com/fire...series-nutmeg/

Ares SCR with wood furniture - traditional look; but takes AR15 magazines and other common AR parts as well.
