The stock is made up of some hard plastic material (I think). It is very light and feels somewhat cheap. You can feel the barely feel the seams where the two halves of plastic were molded together. The textured grips do feel nice when holding it.
The receiver/trigger/barrel assembly did not easily fit into the stock. I had to give it a good amount of persuasion to fit. Even after tightening the takedown screw (which comes included) you can see small gaps here and there between the receiver and stock. In contrast, the standard wood stock that came with my 10/22 fits better, feels heavier, and has an overall higher quality feeling.
While the takedown screw is included, a barrel band is not. The standard 10/22 barrel band does fit on this stock (but you don’t need it). It does have holes to attach a sling.
This aspect is obviously subjective, but I love the look of this stock. I think the contrast of the white stock is perfect against the black reciver and barrel. The “camo” pattern is subtle but well done. The Ruger eagle logo is present on the butt plate and the bottom of the grip, which I think is a nice touch.
This stock is listed at $80 on Ruger’s website, and you’ll probably have to pay a few dollars for shipping as well. The build quality isn’t terrible, but I am slightly disappointed in the qualiy considering the price.
While this is by no means a high quality stock, I am still satisfied with the purchase as I really like the look of it. Whether it’s worth $80 is really up to you.
Additional note: It does not appear that a bull barrel would fit with this stock. You may be able to sand down the edges enough to fit properly.|
