Tactical in wood........

Figured a good way to see if photosharing works.

Yep, it's a 14. The synthetic stock seems to actually be fine, I just like wood stocks. I was surprised that I got one with the older curved butt from Midway. Figured it'd be a new stock. Which was good actually as I could add my old Choate pad from an older beat up wood Mini stock I had.

I really like the Explorer laminated stocks and wish I had waited until I saw them.

I also have an almost identical set-up, mine is a Mini 30. I love the look of wood, looks classic.

how accurate was your rifle when you got it? I have the NRA Mini14 and it is as accurate as a good AR. my brother shoots sub MOA with it regularly, I can sometimes shoot close groups, Im not so young and steady now at 66.
I was just wondering if most of the 16 1/8" barreled tactical and NRA were that good.

I reload and it seems to like Hornady 55gr flat base SP's in front of 26.5gr of BL-C(2). This was the first load I used in it and I've gotten 2" at 100 meters. That's plenty good enough for me. They don't have a cannelure, but I give 'em a little crimp anyway.

The stock is the only thing I've changed with the rifle.
