No problem. He has the rifle, but wants to return an original stock to the rifle.
So finding the 180 series stock is the problem.
bingo! and considering the prefix "180" designates an older design of the mini...one which is no longer in production or supported by the company...finding a stock the 180 will fit is a challenge. they are cut differently than the "new" stocks, and they are no longer made.
thus why virtually every mini after market stock designates "post 180"....
Yes. Found one on eBay for $36 shipped. Now the frustration is getting the gun out of the Maxi-14 stock that it's in. I can't find instructions online for the stock, and for the life of me, I can't tell what is securing the gun in the stock.
I wish I wasn't such a moron about mechanical issues. I'm fine with instructions, but not so good with improvisation.
maybe if you post few pictures we could try and help you out. It should not be very hard to remove the stock. On a factory stock and assume your aftermarket stock works the same way, you have to remove the trigger group by lifting the trigger guard up. the trigger group comes out and the rife slides out of the stock.
