This is probably what sets the 10/22 apart from other .22 semi-auto rifles. You can go from mild to wild with bolt on ease. Traditional shooters my be content either upgrading to a synthetic or fancy laminated stock along the lines of the factory unit. However in my opinion the fun starts when you select a thumbhole or a competition oriented stock. Additionally there’s hardware to turn your 10/22 into a bullpup or something resembling an AR-15. Easy justification for owning more then one of these fine rifles. Below you’ll see some a random sampling from the inexpensive Hogue to the top of the line Bell & Carlson or FA Enterprises. If your interested in getting a 10/22 for a youth there is also a suitable stock for that purpose. Lastly before you head out and spend more on a stock then the guns purchase price be sure to see if one of Ruger’s 34 models doesn’t already suit your needs. Of course where’s the fun in that.
One thing to keep in mind when picking a new stock. Know the dimensions of your barrel or the barrel you intend to use so your sure to get one that fits properly. A standard barrel will look silly in a stock meant for a heavy barrel.
