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.
