I have a question for you guys (and gals). I have a 10/22 (who doesn't?). I love that little rifle. I want to dress it up with a new stock. I'm old school about some things, and in the case of most rifles, I like steel and wood, so I want to keep a wood stock on it. I'm thinking about seeing if I can obtain a 10/22 sporter stock for it. The sporter model has a really nice walnut stock with cut checkering.

So my question is if the 10/22 barreled action can just slip into the sporter stock or if any modifications would need to be made. Also, I don't yet know if I can buy just the stock.

I know the 10/22 is highly customizable but I don't know if it's as easy as just slipping it into a new stock. I'm just beginning to research this, and I will do a web search and youtube search as well. If nothing turns up I will contact Ruger to see how I can proceed.

Thanks in advance for any light you can shine on the subject.

Check out ATI out of Flordia.

This is just one example..............: Amazon.com: ati stock 10 22

There are also a long list of folding stocks................. but it all ends up GOOD!


At the end of the day, I would not want to get hit by several rounds from this, or anything else.

Yes, a barreled action with a sporter barrel should just slip into the walnut sporter stock. I have 3 10-22s, and from time to time will swap out one of my barreled actions into a different stock and have had no problems.

Thanks for the link, ANGLICO. I know the type of stock I'm after - wlanut with nice checkering. While I was just on the Brownell's site I did a search for "10/22 stocks."

I got this product hit:

Ruger 10/22 10 22 barrel band stocks Parts at Brownells

Not what I was after, but I kinda like it. After I find the one I'm after I may go back and get this one also. I like the look of a "Chicago" 10/22!

Thanks for the info Bama. Problem is this is not a sporter barrel. It's the standard 10/22 barrel, with barrel band. My fear is that it won't just slip into a sporter stock. I may have to just suck it up and buy the sporter model to get what I want. Bummer. I was hoping to save a little money on the project.

LOL. Yeah, I know what you mean. When someone talks about "dressing up" a firearm, most people are talking about synthetics with accessories coming out the yin-yang. I'm a simple, old school kinda guy. On most of my rifles, I like just plain steel and wood. Showing my age I guess.

You may want to check directly with Ruger.
I've been on their site and they don't seem to offer the stock as a separate item. I'm going to contact them to make sure, and to find out what they have to say about putting a standard barreled 10/22 in a sporter stock. It may not even be possible. I may have to either go with an after market barrel or just buy a sporter model. This is getting more interesting than I had hoped. We'll see how it turns out.

Old School is good. Go with what you know, Bro!

I'm sorry, my post wasn't very clear. I have a sporter stock, and the standard barrel fits in it just fine. The barrel band is a feature of the standard stock. The barreled action from your rifle will fit just fine in the walnut sporter stock.

All the 10-22 stocks are interchangeable. Call customer service or go to the website. I work at the plant in Newport.

Have you considered dressing up yours? I've stripped, sanded, and refinished a couple older rifles now and been happy with the results,although I haven't cut any checkering. I understand wanting to loose the barrel band. There are a couple of aftermarket wood and laminated wood stock makers out there as well.
I am lucky, I spent the extra $30 or so back in '87 to buy the nicer wood.

Ahh, OK cool. I apparently misunderstood you. Thanks for letting me know. Now I just need to find a stock.

Here is another: Slide Fire - Slide Fire® - Superior Performance Gun Stocks

But there is always the elephant in the closest; you got ammo?
Thanks for the link. Looks cool, but not what I'm after. That's exactly what I was talking about when I said "synthetic with accessories out the yin-yang." Give me a nice walnut stock and I'm happy. I'll keep looking. I'm sure I'll find something I'll be happy with.

Oh, and yes, I'm OK on .22 ammo.

It sounds like you want to lose the barrel band altogether. Another option addressing how the rifle shoots is to use a Dremel to reduce the inside of the band so that the barrel doesn't touch it. In my experience, removing the band or doing the procedure I mentioned improves slightly accuracy of the stock barrel. However, some people don't notice a difference either way.

But if you want to consider re-finishing your standard birch stock, that gives you something to think about.

I'm with you, I like the old school wood and steel. Though I do like synthetic if it is a hunting gun.
