I just recently bought a 181 series mini 14. It came with wood and synthetic stock, but obviously wood stock is original.

I love the look of the synthetic but the problem is the upper part is wood. I have seen many different style but not sure what I can do to fix it.

What are my options?

Where can I get a new piece that is not wood?

Congrats on your purchase. That upper part is the handguard. Choate makes a black replacement or you can usually find the newer stock handguards on gunbroker. Midway has tons of mini accessories so check there too. If you want to go with a scout rail setup the amegas and ultimak are the way to go. I'm personally a big fan of the ultimak, it's sleek and useful.

Also, check out the mini gallery here on the site tons of great ideas.

Not all of the links are ones posted by us. There's an adservice that links keywords in posts to what it thinks we are talking about.

I have one for 180, not 181. if u can source a metal, barrel clip and install it, then the 180m version will fit. 65.00 shipped to you.

Will this work on a 180 as is? Or does it require work and parts, LMK. P.M me with pictures if still for sale.

this handguard is NOS, (new-old stock) and has the metal clip that encircles rear of handguard, securing it to gun. I bought it, intending to modify it somewhat to fit 181, but finally found one for the 181 series. Like I said, it is new, not a mark on it. send me your email address, and I will send u some pics. tks. Terry

has anyone, with /GB model w/bayonet lug, ever moved lug forward 2-2.5 inches? I want to add barrel stabilizer and have less than 3 in between gas block and lug. I want to use 5-6 in stabilizer bar, so would have to move lug forward 3 in or so. would that look odd? just seeking opinions. tks to all.
