I think I have choices narrowed down to either a Hogue Overmolded stock or one of the laminates, either the Bone Gray because I think it would look excellent on my SS Ranch Rifle, or the Buckskin Brown because it looks the most like a real wood stock.

Now to wait until after Christmas to make sure Mrs. Doc hasn't surprised me, or if she decides to put some money in the "Doc Ward Hobby Fund."

Snakedriver, what is the make of the flash suppressor on your Mini? I really like it.
I got it in 1983 when I bought the rifle, but as I recall it was a Choate. They don't make that style anymore, but here is one Made in the USA that is pretty much the same thing.

Mini 14 /M14 Style Flash Hider- Black ~ Old Sarge's Drop Zone - Dunkirk, New York - (716) 203-7221

Here's the one that is made by Choate today that has sight's built-in to the suppressor:

John Masen makes some cool looking flash suppressors for the Mini, as well.

I was born and raised in Columbus, and still have family there, in addition to my National Guard unit being located there. I live near Springfield now.

Snakedriver, M14sRock, thanks for the leads.

You might not be interested in Ruger factory mags for the -14, but Ruger began selling larger types (20-rounders) to US civilians just after the last presidential election.

Last spring, they began selling 20-rounders for the Mini 30.
Owners don't always like the price, but claim that they are much better than most aftermarket higher-cap. mags.

Much more at "Perfectunion", "Mini 14/30", "Magazines".

They are also selling the 30rd Mini 14 mags now.
