I like wood stocks, and I picked one up at Midway for my Ruger Mini 14 SS (Ranch Rifle). As you likely know, this rifle comes with the synthetic stock, but I like wood. Midway sells the wood stock with all the appropriate metal parts, such that the SS action is just a drop-in. Zeroed the rifle today with the wood stock and could not have had a more enjoyable time! Mine has the GG&G tactical rail and Aimpoint CompC3 red dot sight.
