I was thinking of getting an aftermarket composite stock for my 10/22, but need some advice on a good one.
I"m not interested in folding stocks, or anything else wild, more like this one:

Either one like this, or? Anyone here use this one?

Thanks! The reviews looked pretty good, but I"m always careful with aftermarket stuff.
While were on the subject, I would like some recomondations for a decent scope (not variable) and a good scope mount.

I got quite a deal on the 10/22...everything is original, came with the box and manual, and......an extra barrel that is threaded! Just perfect for my Gemtech!! :grin:

As far as the scope goes, I"m trying to stay around $50. There are so many to choose from, I"m not sure where to start.

The Hogue stock is awesome. I've had one on my 10/22 for YEARS and love it. As for the scope, Tasco makes a 3-9 Mil-Dot that's less than $50 and the glass is unbelievably sharp and crisp. I know you said NOT variable but I thought I'd throw it out there. I currently have one on my Cetme...

It looks like the Houge stock is the way to go. I"m not planning on competition shooting, but I will need a scope because the can makes the iron sights all but useless.
I"m also gonna need a scope mount. It looks like the rifle never had one installed? When did Ruger start doing this?

The Tasco scopes are great. I have two of the 2.5-10 models on 22mags and a 3-9 on a 10/22. This place has great prices and free shipping.

If you need a hogue stock to fit a bull barrel I have one I'd part with. I want a green one and all I need is an excuse. :twisted:
You may need the sporter profile barrel one though.
I also have a few extra scope mounts.

go for the houge or a choate. i've had about all the other 10/22 stocks and all they do is destroy the guns accuracy. the muzzlelite bullpub was the worst. ramline folder was just acceptable if you have to have a folder. hope this helps.

How about a fixed power scope report? Something that will not set me back that much.

In my opinion it is damn hard to beat these.

I have 2 of them, one on a 10/22, another on an Ar15. They need a forward mount for the eye relief.
Luckily there is an alternative to the $40 extended mounts out there. This mount will do the job for you.

I have used the split top to bottom Bushnell rings and Weaver brand rings and had zero problems with this mount.

ETA: Here is a pic of the scope mount in the link and the 3-9x Tasco scope.
You now see why I want a ghillie green hogue stock. Screw it. I'm buying it. If I order it tonight it may be here in time for the squirrel hunt.

JoeMomma, is the only reason you want a fixed power scopebecause the can gets in the way of the irons? If so i would highly reccommend a look at these : http://www.tech-sights.com/ . They rock! And if you have an AR it makes for a nice and cheap way to practice withthe same sights....

As for a cheap fixed power scope, the 4x32 Simmons .22 Mag is probably the best bang for your buck, that and the paralax is set at 50 yds for rimfires...

h8mtv...Army ACU pattern??? Dare to be different do we? :grin:

Nice setup though!

Neat sights...but not really what I"m looking for. I will leave the stock irons. I"ll take a closer look at the Simmons scope. I ran across these already, but have zero knowledge on these. They take the standard Ruger mount on top of the rifle then? Or should I look to an aftermarket one?

Dumb question....does the Weaver mount from Midway work with the screws already on the rifle, or do I need to get these somewhere?

It matches up with the existing holes. The carbine came in ACU pattern from Gander for $169. The camo finish is shit though. It came off over the barrel where the band was almost immediately. It was too big a PITA to strip the reciever and trigger so I just Duracoated a sand blasted SS barrel ACU grey/green and I will have it in a Ghillie green stock.
