A-TM Folding Stock FAQ
There are multiple small/minor as well as larger parts that make up the stock. Once put together they are not meant to be taken apart – thus voiding the warranty if taken apart. We have highly trained individuals here that do the assembly, using devices made specifically for this assembly process.
Q: When will my credit card be charged?
A: A hold may be placed on your card depending on your bank. When we are ready to ship your order, we may need to contact you to get your credit card information in order to process your order.
Q: What kind of wood is used and how is it finished?
A: We are using walnut supplied by Ruger. The walnut has been sealed, plus finished with 2 coats of polyurethane to bring out the natural beauty and uniqueness of the wood. Due to the nature of walnut, expect variations in both color and grain from stock to stock. Walnut, like most natural woods, will darken over time and develop a deep lustrous patina.
Returns will not be accepted, or exchanges approved based on the color alone.
Q: Are the A-TM and B-TM folding stocks legal in my state?
A: There are a myriad of firearms laws around our nation, unfortunately. As such, Samson Manufacturing does not provide legal advice to anyone regarding any state's firearms laws. It would be up to you to learn and understand your state's firearm and firearm products laws. We are not in a position to offer any legal advice.
Q: Will it fit my rifle?
A: The A-TM stock will fit most models and calibers of the RUGER® Mini-14® and Mini Thirty® other than the AC-556 (see below). May not be compatible with the 180-series Mini-14®.
Q: Will my aftermarket magazine fit?
A: Some aftermarket magazines may not fit, therefore we recommend using a Ruger® factory magazine for best results.
Q: How close is it to the original?
A: Cast components are coming off the original Ruger molds and wood is also supplied by Ruger. New production wood is Walnut instead of the original Birch, and pistol grips are Polymer where the originals were Bakelite. The retention screw uses an Allen-head instead of the original slotted head design. Other than that, it is the original stock. The A-TM stock has a length of pull of 13.5” just like the original.
Q: When will it be available?
A: Initial orders began shipping in March 2020. Due to the extremely high demand, delivery will be delayed by several months. Orders are shipping in the order that they are received, and will show as ‘pending’ until ready to ship. While we work to decrease lead time and expedite your order, we thank you for your patience.
Q: Can I get it in Blue?
A: You can get an A-TM stock in any color you want as long as it is Stainless. In other words...NO.
Q: Is it available outside the U.S.?
A: Due to pending changes in export regulations, the A-TM may eventually be available without the need for an export license.
An export license is currently required to ship outside of the U.S. (this means you, Canada). We are working with our International distributors on the possibility of selling outside the U.S. We have no plans to offer sales to International customers through our website.
If/when additional information becomes available, we will add it to our FAQ.
Q: Will it be available with the AC-556 selector switch cut?
A: We expect to have an AC-556 compatible model available as a Samson exclusive later this year. Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
Q: How will the A-TM Stock affect the Classification of my rifle?
A: Installing this stock on your Mini-14® or Mini Thirty® rifle could create a rifle configuration that is illegal in some states. Before purchase or installation, verify with local law enforcement that feature-based restrictions in your state or locale do not prohibit installation.It is the customers responsibility to determine if the addition of the A-TM stock will change the legal status of their rifle in the jurisdiction in which they reside. We make gun parts, not legal determinations. If you live in a freedom-challenged part of the world, please check your federal, state and local ordinances before purchasing.

A work of art
Date: March 27, 2021
I can’t say enough about this stock. It’s a dream come true to have this stock on my mini. The color on the wood was not as light as others have mentioned. It’s about the same color as my old 10/22 factory stock. I’m very happy with it. Great product!!
VERY Nice Stock. I'm Impressed.
Date: March 10, 2021
Wow! I am very impressed. I ordered this from ShopRuger on Christmas Eve 2020 knowing that it probably wouldn't get here until around May 2021 because of the super high demand. But, I received it yesterday, March 10th. This stock is a very nice, high quality item. Fit is perfect, fits the receiver like a glove. The mechanism on the folder works perfectly, with just the right amount of play while still being precise. I was somewhat worried that the wood stain would be too light as that was a complaint from others. However, they must have heard the complaints because this one is the exact same color as my regular wood stock, which looks great. The A-TM stock is walnut instead of birch like the factory stock, both are nice woods. I weighed both stocks and the A-TM came out six ounces heavier than the factory wood stock, which isn't bad. I was hoping I would luck out and receive one with nice flamed out grain but that didn't happen, which is fine. LOL. It was well worth the wait of two and a half months. Thank you Samson, you all did a GREAT job!

This product was long overdue..............Thank you Samson for having the insight to know what gun owners (especially Mini 14/30 owners) wanted.
these folding stocks are nicer than the originals.......... I give it a 9.7 out of 10 stars. The only thing that would make it a perfect 10?........ Black walnut or Turkish Walnut!!!!!! or at least having that option. Thank you!

Very easy to install And looks great. Have bought two to install on a mini 14 and a mini 30. Took less than five minutes to install.

Ruger side folder

Just got this stock in after a six month wait and it was well worth it! My ruger mini 14 ranch rifle fit right in and all the parts fit tightly, no rattling. It even has a sling stud on it for east carry. I grew up watching the A-Team and have wanted one of these forever. Samson manufacturing did not disappoint!
Feels like old times.

My stock finally arrived this week and it's all I imagined. Work is flawless, and everything fit tight and just like you'd want. Five minutes after I opened the box, my tactical mini had a whole new character. Only difference I can tell from the one I had in the '80s is this one is better. My original was "hardwood" and this one is Walnut. Think I might order another.

I received my stock a couple weeks ago and I am so pleased with it I have ordered two more stocks. The stock locks-up tight whether folded or extended and is just as I remember them to be from the 'A-Team'. I have read some complaints the wood is too light-colored but I am very happy with the color. I have no complaints only accolades!
Its the small details folks.

Disappointed like many others that the color of the wood was so light, almost blonde. Was really looking forward to a dark brown stock for my stainless GB. Another point i was not impressed with , though small, was no stainless steel sling swivel attached. Really folks? At almost 300.00 for the stock you'd think a sling swivel would be attached instead of making us order one. The little details. On the up side.. the craftsmanship was great..fit was tight on all pieces. Stock finish of wood was flawless on mine. Stock unfolded fit comfortably, and allowed easy aquisition of sights. delivery on mine was SUPER FAST. It was on its way within 2 days of putting in order. Dont know if thats the normal or not, but im greatful. Had the stock been a dark wood like puctured on rugers site, and the sling swivel attached i would easily have given my experience 5 stars. I only gave 4 though. Made my stainless mini GB look AMAZING.
Excellent quality and workmanship

I've wanted one of these since I first handled one back in the 80's. Turns a 5.56 rifle into a sub-machine gun size weapon. Mine is the stainless Tac version and it looks great. Had to wait a few months for delivery but it was worth it. Highly recommended.

I have a 189 series, stainless Mini Thirty that I acquired in the middle 90's to replace a blued Mini-14, which I sold to finance my first AR build. By then Ruger was no longer producing this classic side-folding stock, which I remember from the prime-time days of "The A-Team." If I could find one on Gun Broker or elsewhere for sale, it was HORRENDOUSLY expensive (for the time) or pretty messed-up. I just got this one on Aug. 12th, 2020. The price I consider reasonable for what it is, AT THIS TIME, and at a time I can afford it. I was surprised to find it included the barrel/stock liner and frame mount bracket. Any after-market stock I had before required removing the original parts and using them in the new stock. Fit was tight, looks fabulous. There's just the TINIEST bit of vertical wiggle in the stock when opened, but that's to be expected in this kind of folder. I added small strips of G5000 firearm grip tape to the face of the butt plate for added traction. I'm good to go. Can't wait to get to range and show off.

Dream Come True
Date: July 3, 2020
I was 12 years old when I asked my dad to buy me a Mini-14 because I'd seen it on the obvious TV show. To my surprise, he got it for me and it's been a mainstay in my collection ever since. I was severely disappointed to find that original Ruger folding stocks almost unobtainable. And now, over 14 years later, I've finally got what I'd always wanted. From a nostalgia and aesthetic perspective, it's perfect. It looks and feels just like it should for what it is, and with modern, sturdier materials.
As for performance, some of the older guys at my local gun shop who used old Ruger GB models at the local prison told me horror stories about the original run of stocks and it made me a touch apprehensive. Although I intended to shoot it from the hip like on the show, so I didn't really care.
The first time I took it out, I ran a mag through with the stock out and it felt just like one of my ARs. Almost no perceptible recoil and seemingly no loss in accuracy. The first time I brought it to the range, everyone wanted to shoot it, folded and unfolded.
So, this is well worth the reasonable price. Samson's customer service was also top notch and answered all of my dumb questions. There is literally no reason to not buy this stock.

I've had a Mini-14/20GB folder; this stock is indistinguishable from the original. Its fit and function are flawless.
I have but one quibble: it would be nice if the wood was more attractive, but the originals were plain so one can't complain.
