    Question Ruger 10/22 - whats the best stock out there?

    I'm in the market for a new 10/22 stock, so I can use a .920" carbon tension barrel I picked up.

    The little ruger is currently sporting a hogue stock. While nice to hold, it is not very rigid, so caused differing pressure on the barrel when shooting offhand vs off a fence post or bipod.

    Has anyone managed to get their hands on one of these?

    It seems to tick a lot of boxes, including securing the action both front and rear, which has always been a problem with the 10/22.

    I need to buy another stock to accept the .920" barrel, so was wanting something I didn't need to modify out of the box. Re-reading my original post, it's not clear that was what I was doing.
    Running a 1" corebox cutter down the Hogue sporter barrel stock to make the barrel fit would just make it so flexible it would be pointless. (I contemplated it).

    I put my 10/22 into one of those ati Dragnov styled stocks and it became far easier to shoot accurately

    Sent from my workbench
    If i could have a full time job shooting pests i'm up for over time.

    Agree with smidey the ati stock is much better especially for unsupported shooting. Probably any pistol grip / thumbhole would be an improvement if enlarged to take the bigger barrel.

    Boyd's blaster gave me good results. Designed for offhand shooting and ticks your boxes, about $270 landed and 14 days to arrive.
