When you search 10/22 stock on any search engine you are overwhelmed with choices. First thing to decide is what you are wanting your rifle to do. You may want to build a 1500 dollar 10/22 for poking one holes in paper at 50 yds, or you just want to drop that pesky blue jay that keeps screeching and running off the nice birds. If you just want to knock out the blue jay, you are fine with the out of the box birch stock. Do you want a little aftermarket feel, added durability, and a little better accuracy? The Hogue over-molded stock is for you. It is beefy and inexpensive. You wont have to worry about dinging up that pretty Ruger birch stock and your groups will be a little tighter. I dont think that the Stock is a huge improvement in accuracy, but it does provide a tighter rifle that fits more snug in your shoulder and against your cheek. So if you arent wanting to drop 200-500 dollars on a stock upgrade and want a practical field rifle and a slightly significant accuracy upgrade, this is the stock for you. Plus, this stock just looks and feels good. Go pick one up and your out all of 75-90 dollars. You’ll thank me. You can find it on Amazon right now for 64 dollars.
