Pics of my Mini 14

My SS 581 series, along with my MKIII 22/45.
My only "mods" so far have been a Bushnell scope and a Stainless plate that I made for the butt.

That buttplate is sweet man. Also, killer black and white pic. Love the red ruger logo.

Thanks, it feels a lot better to me than the foam pad that came stock.
Before, it would stick to my shirt, and it was like the bottom rounded corner was digging into my shoulder.
Now it sits more squarely against my shoulder, and doesn't drag against my shirt.
My wife did the photography,(one of her hobbies) and the photoshop on the logo. She'll be be glad to know someone commented on it!

I hate rubber buttpads. While they stay secure where you put them, they're just too much of a hassle like you said. Give me steel any day.

I dig the buttplate. I did a similiar thing using a black walnut board to make a buttplate for a model 37 ithaca and a model 70 winchester. How did you do the final fitting with yours? I'm curius. Beautiful rifle by the way. I'm a big fan of wood on stainless.

Hatch - I was under the impression that 58X-series stainless Minis are not available with wooden stocks. Did you buy yours separately?

The rifle looks AWESOME, by the way!
