So I have a mini-14 stainless folder. I'm contemplating a job offer in Connecticut. CT AW ban specifically states that the mini-14 folders are not CT compliant, but if I can find a non-folding stock I can get around that issue.

So I'm looking at a couple of options:
Butler Creek - nothing thrilling looks like what ruger already sells
Choate - pistol grip & not bad for the $
Tapco Fusion - pistol grip, allows vfg w/o mods
SCAR-CQB - satisfies my inner mall ninja but whoa on the $

I'm leaning toward the Tapco due to cost and features, but not really happy with any of the offerings other than the SCAR. If this were an AC556 the SCAR would be a done deal but it's just a mini folder that I happen to love like a red headed step child.

Just wanted to get folks opinions on what's out there and type of quality to expect. I'm happy with my stock mini-14 wood/stainless folder as is but the Socialists in CT aren't. I'm just unwilling to relinqish my toys. I know this is the place to get opinions...

As a SCAR owner (with my AC556) I can tell you the SCAR is real quality.

But a stock doubling the price of my gun (unless it was a scoped bolt gun) is a bit pricey.

ha ha... well I figured since you cant own it in CT you will need to rid yourself of it... Ha ha.... LOL..

personally I would keep it anyways and just keep a lid on it. Those things are just too darn rare to come by and what they dont know wont hurt em....

again...... just my 2 cents and nothing more. But as I said... if you just dont feel like you should have it anymore because of CTs laws I will be happy to take it off your hands of course..... LOL :laugh

Get the Choate. You can cut the standard butt off and use an Ace Pignose adapter to attach any AR style butt to this stock. I did this mod to my Butler Creek folder and I am very pleased with the result.

Thanks for the recommendations... except for that "sneaky" ateamrob; he's just got to work on the smooth talk a bit more. I was "this close" to just mailing my folding stock to him to keep it "safe".

I may take up Jason's offer pending pics. There's a slim hope I may end up in Maryland instead, but expect the best and prepare for the worst.

ha ha.. my Wife says I need to work on my smooth talk a bit more too. She says that I............... well.............. I better not say it.... :lol :lol
Honestly Mark.... I would just keep it and put it away as its a REAL collectors item these days and its just nice to have even if you dont have it on your rifle. Just put it away and when you want to see that vintage Ruger, A-Team looking gun, just throw it on the weapon and then when you are done drooling on it, put it away again. I would hold onto it and throw a Choate on it as Jason said or a SCAR, something high speed like that.

anyways.... just thought you guys may want to see my 3 Rugers.... Two twin Mini 14 (factory folders. one with a Federal Ordnance stainless handguard) and the other is my AC-556K. As you can see... I really dont need any more factory folders.... LOL.

And here is the stock I was referring to in my PM:

All you would need to do is cut off the butt of the Choate and attach an Ace pignose adapter. You can then put any kind of butt on the Choate that tickles your fancy.

I've never heard anybody say that they hope to end up in Maryland before.
