If it was mine it would stay unfired and mint but thats just me
Brownells , gunbroker, ebay , stocks are easy to find just make sure your model# or first three fit the one your buying

What are some good aftermarket stocks in polymer or composite or whatever?
If someone could share links I would appreciate it.
My Mini has been wearing a Choate folding stock for at least 25 years now.

You could sell that mini for $1200 easy as unfired with the folding stock which would give you more than enough to buy a newer model tactical mini.

might get more for that gun unfired! then, you'd be approaching an M1A if you sold it!

i wouldn't sell it though....and it'd be damn hard to keep it "unfired" if it were in my possession!

I wish there were. Basically there are two or three poly stocks available, but I've heard bad about all of them. One in particular needs a lot of work to get a decent fit. The easiest way to find out more about them both would be to go to Amazon.com, have a look at them, and read the comments.

Man, what a find!

You hit the jackpot, IMO.

If it were me, I'd leave it just the way it is. I'd keep

it and shoot it. A lot. Niiice rifle.

If it came from grandpa I'd keep it for sure. It's not every day you get something like that handed down. It's definitely stay in the family as long as I'm breathing. As far as shooting it goes, it'd sure be hard not to but I wouldn't shot it too much and make sure it stays in New condition
