As Close to an Original Factory Folder as You Can Get Without a Time Machine!
Samson's A-TM Folding Stock for the Ruger® Mini-14® and Mini Thirty® closely replicates the folding stock of the Ruger® AC-556® select-fire military / police Mini-14® variant. How close? It's manufactured on machinery acquired from the manufacturer who made the original stocks for Ruger®. Short of acquiring a rare and expensive original AC-556® folding stock, you can't get more authentic than this!
The A-TM Folding Stock is also a practical upgrade for your Mini-14®, making an already compact, handy, lightweight rifle.... even more compact and handier. As a substantial bonus, it will also make your Mini-14® look exactly like the rifles that figured prominently in a certain iconic early 1980s TV show we can't name because of copyright stuff.
Here's more good news: the Samson A-TM stock will fit ALL models and calibers of Mini-14® and Mini Thirty®, except for the AC-556® (and Samson's working on a model for that). Who doesn't love it when a plan comes together?
- Rugged aluminum & Walnut construction
- Length: 19.5" (folded), 29" (extended)
- Height: 5.5"
- Width: 3.5" (folded), 2.25" (extended)
- Length-of-pull: 13.5"
- 4.2 lbs. wt.
- Drop-in fit to ALL Mini-14® & Mini Thirty® models (except AC-556®)
Authenticity fans, take note: The stainless steel components on the A-TM folding stock are cast from the ORIGINAL Ruger® molds, and the wood used is seasoned Walnut supplied by Ruger®. It's better looking than the Birch used on the original AC-556® / Mini-14® stocks. Samson's pistol grip is molded from reinforced polymer, which is much more durable than the original Bakelite, and Allen head screws are used rather than the original slot heads. The stainless parts have a natural matte gray-silver finish. While some folks may prefer blued steel, Samson reassures us that you can have your A-TM stock with any color metal as long as it's silver stainless steel. Pity the fool who doesn't have a Samson A-TM folding stock on his Mini!
