Samson Manufacturing showcased its brand new side-folding stocks for the Ruger Mini-14 and 10/22 rifles at SHOT Show.

Not only did they work with Ruger to faithfully re-create their original stock from the 70s and 80s, but Samson also improved it. The A-TM stock for the Ruger Mini-14 looks, feels and operates exactly like the original, except for two small differences. Instead of a bakelite grip found on the original, Samson opted for a molded plastic grip. They also used walnut wood instead of birch. According to Bryan Kay, a representative for Samson at SHOT Show, both materials are more durable than the original, and thus are improvements.

Ruger never made a side folding stock for their popular 10/22 rifle. As a result, Samson’s B-TM stock that fits the 10/22, is entirely new. It features the same design and materials as the A-TM stock, except it has a shorter length of pull.

Samson isn’t allowed to mention the famous 80’s tv show that made the Mini-14 and side folding stock so popular. But, they certainly chose a clever name – the A-TM Stock. “Nostalgia from the 80’s tv show is obvious in it,” said Kay.

With original Ruger side-folding stocks selling for upwards of $1,000, Samson has priced their stocks competitively. The A-TM stock sells for $279.99. The B-TM sells for $259.99. Both are available directly on Samson’s site.

Guns.com has plenty of new and used Mini-14s and 10/22 rifles to put them on.
