Hot damn that's an unheard-of deal. I am a fan off wood as well, although I have synth. I intended to go wood at some point.

The factory stock is actually birch stained to look like walnut.... At 300 bucks, you got a sweet deal, and a great rifle...congrats...

Those kinds of deals don't come along every day...enjoy!

In my experience, after-market mags are a gamble when it comes to the Mini-14. Some work reliably, some don't. Factory mags, on the other hand, are always your best bet. Enjoy your purchase.:)
