    is there a nice looking 223 semi automatic rifle out there somewhere, that has a wood stock? besides the $1000 BAR that is. ruger mini's are ugly as sin, and i will confess to looking at ar's. but i really like beautiful wood stocked rifles. it would be great if it would accept an ar style magazine, but that is not a necessity. yes, high prices keep me away from guns. otherwise, i would have probably just given in and bought an ar style rifle. i am on a fixed income, and just can not justify $1000-1500 for a rifle.

    Other than the Ruger Ranch rifle, I can't think of another .223 semi auto that is wood stocked. You mentioned the Browning BAR, but I don't recall them ever offering that rifle in .223.
    Now there are a number of nice wood stocked semi auto rifles in .243...............

    It's a bit spendy, but Volquartsen makes a .223 called the Evolution. Kind of a nice idea, uses an M1 carbine type short stroke piston with an M16 type bolt. Uses AR mags. It's supposed to be a pretty remarkable shooter, though for over $2K it ought to be.
