I wish Ruger would offer a original folding stock just like the first one.

LCR,
I agree! Probably won't happen. Not sure why a third party, buying the Ruger patent, wouldn't do it. Am a bit perplexed, other than the business major in me crying "demand".

On my Mini-30's, I currently have the Ruger wood stock ( new style ), the Ruger synthetic stock and the Choate pistol grip stock that walkenbear mentioned above.
I like the longer LOP and the rubber butt pad of the new style wood stock for range use, but the old style of wood stock with shorter LOP and curved butt plate would seem to be better out in the field, it's lighter and more compact than the new style, easier to use with heavy clothing than a longer stock, etc.
The Hogue is comfortable, but a bit wider and heavier than most.
The Choate pistol grip stock has a nice feel to it, it points really quick.
It is noticeably lighter than even the Ruger synthetic stock.
But the fore end of the Choate is a bit too soft and noodly. I put an Ultimak on that M-30 right away, I'm thinking that the Ultimak helps stiffen barrel even if the stock doesn't support it enough. That Mini-30 is very accurate, even with the shortened barrel and flexible stock.
I added three short rails on the end of the Choate. A flashlight or laser can be used on one side, a sling mount on the other, and on the bottom of this one, just for grins, I put on a Tango Down vertical grip. Gives the Mini a solid feel with both hands on vertical grips.
But the Ruger synthetic stock remains my favorite. It has better grip with the checkering, decent light weight, stiffness, and the ones I've seen fit the actions nice and snug. I'm not into black that much though, and cerakote the stocks a different color.
The one in the pic with the Scout scope on it is Sniper Grey Cerakote, and the next one I do will be a sage green/FDE combo.
