Ruger’s 10/22 semi-automatic .22 LR rifle is one of the most user-modified guns in the world, so there are more aftermarket accessories and equipment made for it than for almost any other firearm model. One of the most common modifications made to the 10/22 is to switch out the factory stock with one of the numerous aftermarket options—and when I say numerous, I mean it.
There are selections ranging from skeletonized, paratrooper-style folding stocks to sporter- and hunting-style entries, all the way to big, solid benchrest-type stocks. Prices run from less than $100 to more than $400. I’ve tried a bunch of stocks on my personal rifle over the years, and here are eight of the most popular Ruger 10/22 replacement stocks.
- The Hogue OverMolded Rubber stock is my all-around favorite because it’s so comfortable. Occasionally, I’ll try a more specialized stock for certain applications, but for the most part, I keep this one installed on the 10/22 all the time. Its internal fiberglass body provides solid support, and its light weight makes for easy carry. The outer skin is available in cushioned rubber or nylon, both providing a nonslip grip. The stock is fully inletted for drop-in installation, and Hogue offers models to fit factory standard barrels and bull barrels (0.92 inches). Features include: a straight comb; a rubber recoil pad; a wide, varmint-style fore-end; dual palmswells; a recurve pistol grip; and front and rear sling-swivel studs. The grip and fore-end have a cobblestone texture.
