Mini-14: Plastic to Walnut

Over time I have grown to dislike black plastic stocks on most guns.

Decided it was time to $hit can the plastic Ruger stock and put on a real one.

This walnut one came from Accuracy Systems and I couldn’t be happier with the quality, fit and finish.

Now looking for a quality, made in US leather sling for it.

Looks great.

My tactical mini 14 is stainless. I don't think that would look as nice with the wood.

I’ve wanted a Mini14 for a while. Just never gone all in since they seem so controversial regrading their price for the performance you get but they look so damn good in wood. Nice one OP.

I have my tactical set up in that exact configuration, except I dropped it in an older factory wood stock. I'd recommend an M1907 sling.

Any chance you have a picture of yours with the M1907 sling on it?

I have had three on order from Turner Saddlery since February for a Springfield 1903A3 and two M1 Garands. Evidently they have had some delays and some trouble getting leather.

I was kind of leaning toward a Nohma Amish made buffalo hide sling. I have one on a Ruger 10/22 Mannlicher and really like it.

I never even though of putting a 1907 on it.

The wood in that stock is fantastic. Hard to believe it's on a Mini-14.
