    Samson Mfg and the Mini-14 Folding Stock

    https://m.facebook.com/SamsonMFG/pho...pe=3&source=48

    Could this really be happening? Some version of this is long overdue in my opinion.

    Reported on TOS the price will be $250 or so. And the production model will have a pistol grip that looks more like the original.

    I wonder if we'll see a side swivel gas block.

    I have spent 15 years wondering why the hell Ruger has just not starting using the stock again.

    I have spent five years wondering why they don’t sell a pistol version of it with a brace on the end of the folder.

    And factory SS large capacity magazines.

    The mini 14 has a large legacy market of shooters and collectors.

    Yes. I agree on all points.

    Ruger is making an AR pistol now. Maybe that means some type of Mini pistol will come to market. I'm assuming Ruger will partner with Samson and sell a complete factory firearm although the majority of sales will likely be current owners wanting to retrofit.

    Are they literally chopping a wood stock and bolting that thing to the rear?

    The picture looks like crap.

    Didn't you read gun rags in the 80s? At least these don't jam like those POS AR-15s that got everyone killed in Nam.

    I have too much disposable income, nostalgia, and DGAFness to make bang for buck, accuracy, reliability, and ergonomics my only considerations when buying a weapon.

    I beat the piss out of four cars with carburetors, non overdrive manual or automatic transmissions, and AM radios with 8track players. When concurrently owning a new Hemi Challenger and 5.0 Coyote Mustang.

    It’s ok to enjoy stuff that is not the latest and greatest and most refined.

    I have two types of guns:
    My “killing guns” and stuff I saw as an 80s kid on TV.

    Mini 14s aren’t the worst and yes they are heavily outmoded by ARs but they just are a throwback to a time gone by.

    I have boringly reliable ARs that boringly put holes and are literally point and click. Yawn. Suppressors. Ho hum.

    When the Civil Race World War Boogaloo goes down; that’s what I shall grab.

    Meanwhile if it’s a nice Sunday at the range, I’m taking my Vietnam War clone and pretending I’m wasting Charlie. I even have a playlist of 60s hits to get hype on. I even start talking like the black power guy from Tropic Thunder

    So it’s okay for stuff to be fun. Like a fat girl. She may not impress your friends or even be all that flexible but she makes ya laugh and gets ya off and that’s the point.

    For the right price, I’d buy a TEC 9 so I can save Chinatown
