Anyone try one yet? I'm considering outfitting the 10/22 and the Mini-14 (yeah, yeah, I know, I know) but was wondering how solid a lockup you get and how comfortable they are to shoot. Any input?

I've got a ten year old BC folder for my Mini-14. It's a very nice stock. I imagine the new ones are also.

None of these folding stocks are too comfortable.<G>

The Butler Creek and Choate folders both give very solid, reliable lockup. They are both easy to open and close. Very little "wiggle" when open and locked.

I looked at the Butler Creek stocks years ago, before the ban. They seemed real solid and well built.

Cabela's has the best price I've seen lately.

The only time I cared much for my old Ruger Mini 14 was when it sported a a Butler Creek SS folding stock. (I can't remember the exact model of my Mini but it had a threaded barrel with a bird cage flash suppresor on it, all in stainless) The BC stock was a definite plus in my book. Alas, even the folding stock couldn't make me want to continue to own the Mini and it all went down the road.

The Choate mechanism is all metal too, and quite similar to the Butler Creek. The main difference is that Choate has overmolded much of the stock with the same Zytel plastic as the main part, in effect, making a cheekrest.

Both Butler Creek and Choate come in SS and blued versions.

Interesting thing about the Butler Creek, has a "trapdoor" pistol grip.

Choate was available in black and camo.
