8 Best Ruger 10/22 Replacement Stocks

by Joel Hutchcroft   |  August 7th, 2013 16

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.

    I have to agree the Hogue OverMolded Rubber Stock is hard to beat.

  • sgt1911

    Sam, I agree 100 percent, the Overmokd on my 10-22 is outstanding. i will never change it out.

    • SamF1911

      Same here, everything you need on a 10/22 stock and nothing you don’t.

    LOVE the inclusion of the ZK-22 from RJF. Just looks 100% badass.

  • Marco Boudreau

    Where’s J Bunting’s Aluminum Bullpup stock?

  • Ryan

    the tapco intrafuse is the best 10/22 stock by far, compared to these… idk how it didn’t make the list!

  • michael granato

    I love the Hogue over mold stock too. However if you really wanted the best on this list, you can’t beat the McMillan Ruger 10/22 Fiberglass Sporter Stock. Rimfire Sports used to sell it for under $400. Believe me I know the price is crazy expensive but don’t judge my opinion until you hold it with a light weight barrel. Trust me, I never wanted to spend so much money so fast for my 10/22 in my life. Luckily my wife talked me out of buying it, but it was exactly the style I wanted. But for the price you can’t beat Hogue. I just wish Hogue would have an enhanced cheek rest like the McMillan and I would be so happy.

      I didn’t have anyone to talk me out of that McMillan Fiberglass, although I got the Thumbhole and absolutely love it! I’d order another in a heartbeat for my other 10/22 if they weren’t so expensive! I think I’m going to try the Boyd’s Laminated version this time around at 1/4 of the price.

      • michael granato

        Yep the thumbhole stocks are beautiful and comfortable. I have owned many of the stocks for the Ruger 10/22. The Yukon Extreme stock was my favorite laminate but I also had the Richards Mircofit “Tac Driver” Silhouette Stock. I stopped using laminate stocks because they just aren’t practical for hunting. Though they will do the job you will feel like your gun is a bit too fancy for killing rabbits. However, the Hogue is perfect its light weight, does not look too fancy, rugged and feels great.

    I have a McMillan Ruger 10/22 Fiberglass Thumbhole Stock for sale at 450 dollars plus 20 for shipping in the US. i have pictures

    The TROY T-22 stock is sweet also ,all metal. Also the Archangel stocks are ones to look a too. They should redo this article with all the ones they are missing. .22s are getting super popular these days with all shooters, lot of people coming back to them because its where they started and was the most fun, they need more .22 articles.

  • blake

    you guys should look at a new company that is just launching called X Stock, you will not be disappointed.

    I don’t understand how you can include such a horrible stock as the Red Jacket! It’s great fun to shoot, and looks cool, but wasn’t well thought out. You can’t use the bolt hold open, and anytime you want to clean the thing better than just using a boresnake, that entire clamshell has to be removed, BIG PITA!

  • Zane

    I shot a RJF ZK-22 last weekend and it’s a complete hunk of crap. Charging handle sticks constantly and holds the bolt open. Drops the mag. Cannot access the safety.

  • Marlomagd

    Zk-22??? No ati strikeforce and tapco intrafuse? Really?
