Default Stocks for minis

What are some good pistol grip stocks out there for the Minis that you guys have experience with. Are they universal to fit all Rugar Minis or just specific models?

I have seen this one
http://www.amazon.com/Advanced-Technology-Ruger-Mini14-Buttstk/dp/B0029M0TKI/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1371090521&sr=8-7&keywords=mini+14+stock

Its ok looking. I like the heat guard and vents that came on mine and I don't know if I could keep them on that model stock.

I have also seen this one
http://www.amazon.com/ATI-Mini-14-Ultimate-Professional-Aluminum/dp/B00395GI90/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1371090521&sr=8-4&keywords=mini+14+stock


What is the difference and what does the aluminum upgrade give you?

Any other stocks out there you guys like?


I REALLY like this one. Any idea where I can find one and how much they are?

My Mini has worn the same Choate folding stock for over 25 years now.

The buttstock locks up nice and solid when extended.

There is a difference between the newer 580 series and the older 180 series. Look at the 1st 3 numbers 181-xxxx or 580-xxxx and several in between.

Don't own one but the Choate M4 mini stock sure looks promising.

The original Strikeforce stock I bought for a 581 tactical has a pistol grip that hangs too low for the trigger. The new Strikeforce stock that"s offered by Ruger with the tactical is an improvement with the trigger finger lined up correctly.

i'm not a huge fan of most tactical pistol grip stocks for the mini-14....but i like my mini steel & wood, so i am a bit biased...

there are a few pistol grip stocks i like for the mini. one is the butler creek folder mentioned.

here is another....the archangel sparta stock. no experience with it, i just really like the looks.
