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.


many videos on YouTube that will help you out.

yup. disassembly should be pretty much the same. check some youtube videos.

should be able to use a screwdriver or such, to pry out the trigger guard and loose the action....

I wonder if the OP ever got his stocks off,

Am I twisted, or is that border line just "wrong" wording?

Been buried in a work project. No time available for getting my stocks off. Will report in once I get my stocks off successfully.

How much is a later models stock worth ? I changed out to Hogue for my mini and have never looked back. Didn't know there was a demand for them.

Funny, I like the syn stock on my mini but jury is still out on my 870 Express ?
