I'm looking to upgrade to a longer stock for my 10/22 carbine (with the standard barrel, not the bull barrel). I'm leaning heavily in the direction of the Houge over molded stock in OD green. but midwayusa doesn't have them in stock yet. I could get another color and just paint the dang thang...

I'm planning on using this 10/22 for Appleseed, so I'll be getting tech-sights for it as well as a sling.

any suggestions?

I have the black Hogue stock on my 10-22. I have had zero problems or complaints with it. Mine does have a bull barrel on it so I dont know if you will have any issues with the stock barrel.

I have the rubber textured Houge (black) on one of mine too, I like it just fine.
They also make a harder textured version, little harder to find, but some hard core 10/22 target guys say it even better - they claim the rubberized one flexes enough to affect accuracy. From my level of expertise, you couldn't prove that by me. :drama:

I too have the Houge on my 10-22. It is the overmolded one and the accuracy doesn't seem to suffer. I shoot it mostly off sandbags. Good stock!

I gotta admit, at first I thought they were weird, but I like the thumbhole stocks. Is there any real advantage to that in the way they line up your hand to the trigger or something? Or do people just have them because they look cool?

What is the advantage of upgrading to a Hogue stock? It seems like they're pretty much the same as the factory stock? Is it a look thing or a function thing?

Hopefully this isn't thread hijack...

Not sure why so many folks do it in general.
Although a thumbhole stock does indeed put a different angle for your wrist and trigger pull. Sort of like using a pistol grip, without a pistol grip hanging down below the stock. The one I have shot a little with really WAS quite comfy, felt very ergonomic.

I changed stocks to the Hogue because I bought a circa 2000 stainless model that had the boat paddle stock on it. I just didn't really care for it, and it didn't have sling swivel adapter (wanted to add bipod), and way it was made I didn't feel comfy adding one. That stock was fairly desirable among collectors, so sold it on eBay for about $80 which was more than the Hogue cost. Also, the Hogue has swivel adapters on it.

If the rifle had had a conventional stock, either synthetic or wood, or a thumbhole model I wouldn't have bothered to change it.

Here it is:

One thing's for sure, it's really "tacky" feeling - you won't lose your grip on it!
Some complain that every little thing likes to stick to it, though, and it's somewhat true (dust, cloth fibers, etc).

Get your hands on a Archangel by Promag, mil-spec, 6-position, drop in but it's a bit pricey -almost as much as the rifle itself but worth it!

Geez, did I strike a nerve, whippersnapper? Lighten up, sorry to get your Archangel BDUs in a wad.

I have nothing against modern polymers in firearm products, but I do draw the line at knives.

'Course, I draw the line at ProMag period, since I think the owner should be in prison for ripping each newbie off that buys his mags.

What is it in the water? someone buys in to "Bend-a-whacker status at 111 posts and still pulls the short straw, there's no need in making public cries in the dark.:drool:

10/22 stocks are about as limitless as your imagination and wallet will allow. I wanted something different so I went with the Predator Raptor in Green Envy...............I say get what you like and make it your own little one of a kind.

Beautiful.

From the rare Green Mohimbo tree, found only in the jungles of the Isles of Langerhans, I believe. :tough:

okay, I will bite. What makes that Archangel stock so good?

It looks all tacticool in an AR sort of way. But what you have is still a semi auto .22. The plastic bayonet is pretty much garbage. What are you gonna do, stab someone with it? I doubt too many people think going into close quarters battle with a .22 a very good idea.

Does that stock make the rifle more accurate than the original stock?

Ah c'mon Mikey, you know the answer.
Because you can. :)

Why does Ruger sell this (SR-22)?:

Because they can!
And Ruger didn't even have the decency to design a hi-cap mag for the silly thing.

But if the Archangel stock does not make the groups tighter why put it on?

Yeah you can, you could wipe dog pooh on it too, but will that make it more accurate?

I am waiting to read why that stock is the best thing for the 10-22
