    3. Don't really care after that but I get the feeling the Ruger American Rimfires are going to be a BIG hit.

    Excellent ideas for all of then.

    I hear a lot of people like the guns themselves but say that the factory stocks just feel "cheap".

    I think walnut or laminate stocks would be a hit.

    If I had to choose one, I'd go with the Ruger rimfire. I think the numbers game will reflect much more profit there for you.

    I agree that both Rugers would be a good start, but you'll have to emulate the "power bedding" feature that is a really good enhancement of the synthetic Ruger stock.

    A good number of sportsmen who want to upgrade or trick out a rifle will go with polymer replacement stocks. There are usually more accessories that can be added with synthetic stocks.

    I sell a huge amount of Tapco. Timberline wood stocks, mostly for AK's, a subsidiary of Tapco is also very popular. DYI, no special fitting if any and lightweight.

    I would model any of your efforts around Tapco's success.

    I agree, start with Ruger.
