The 10/22 comes in several different configurations. The carbine is the cheapest and the one I purchased. I loved the gun but the stock that came with it left a little to be desired. Lets face it the action and barrel was what I was after, I KNEW I would be replacing the stock. I wanted something that kept the small game hunting spirit of the 10/22 and not some tacticool piece of garbage. I had a Tapco T6 for my 10/22 then looked at it realized how ridiculous it is to pimp a .22 out like that. I said to myself, if you want an AR go buy an AR. Just my opinion, many people view the 10/22 as a project gun MEANT to be tinkered with and that is fine.
I did some research and settled on Hogue Rubber Overmolded Stock formy 10/22. It was a bit pricey, costing half as much as the gun itself but Hogue has a solid reputation for quality products based on what I have seen on the Net.
The stock arrived and I was pleasantly surprised. Anyone who has a 10/22 knows how light it is, the stock gives it some real heft and MAKES IT FEEL LIKE A RIFLE and not a toy. The stock couldn't be easier to install just remove the barrel band and the main screw on the stock, install, replace main screw and you are done. It comes with some swivels on the stock to which I added a padded sling.
Hogue has hit a home run with this product. The stock gives the 10/22 the push to put it over the edge and make it feel as good as it is built. The floating barrel look is attractive and the stock appears to be built like a tank.
I am done tinkering with my 10/22, I have my replacement stock, a Barska scope and some Tactical Inc. 25 round mags to go with it. I purchased quality stuff and in return I think this rifle will treat me right for many years to come.
No hesitation whatsoever recommending this stock to anyone who has a 10/22 and wants to turn it into a beautiful looking, traditional type rifle.
...that is all.
