For the past 24 years, New Hampshire-based Samson Manufacturing has produced high-quality firearms parts and accessories, with its latest product replicas of the side-folding stocks designed by Ruger. The side-folding stocks are offered with the .223 chambered Mini-14 Ranch Rifles that hit the market in 1973.
When Ruger stopped making the stocks in 1989, it caused a limited supply. Thirty years on, with the public’s continued love for the classic and proven Mini-14 platform, it’s not uncommon to see these side-folding stocks selling for upwards of $1,000.
Samson decided to seize on this market and over the last year, it’s been working with Ruger to produce exact replicas of the original Mini-14 side-folding stocks. Dave Biggers, the director of sales and marketing at Samson, told Guns.com in December that the only difference between the original Ruger stock and Samson’s would be the grip. Instead of bakelite on the Ruger, Samson’s will be made out of a super-durable plastic. They’ll also sell for under $300.
The Ruger 10/22 never had an official Ruger side folding stock; but as one of the most popular rifles on the market, it had plenty of other stock options by a multitude of companies. What Samson did was take the Mini-14 design, and fit it to the 10/22.
To celebrate the launch of their exciting new products, Samson has announced that it’s giving away one of each. The first giveaway includes their B-TM Folding Stock mounted on Ruger 10/22 rifle. You can enter the contest by going to their Facebook page.
