After having a little time to look it over more the gap is still annoying and more noticeable because the tan stock with black receiver but I can live with it. So far I plan to keep it and gather the remaining parts needed for my build.

What makes it so noticeable is that the sides are very tight. The receiver was almost a press fit on the sides. My stock is black and you really have to look for it to see it.


I bought the 3/4" riser because of the odd spot weld I prefer. Works just the way I like it.

I have an FDE stock I just got from Midway. It has a gap at the rear of the receiver, .018 feeler gauge barely fit in the gap. Slight gap is not a problem for me, have had similar gaps on factory wood stocks.

Is this the riser kit you bought for the Hunter 10/22 stock?....

The risers are the same ones used in their SGA shotgun stocks (which have been out a while) so should be readily available at many retailers.

Anyone that has one in their possession know?

Been waiting for others to answer this. But ok, guess I'll do it.

The area where the screw goes that contacts the barrel retainer is about 3/4 " in diameter. It's the same material the stock is constructed from. Not aluminum or brass. The area around this is cut away. Lots of room for filler . The rear is supported on the back 3/4" of the sides and rear of the receiver.
The material is very stiff and mine is extremely tight. I feel that bedding is not going to be needed but I have not had it to the range yet.

My rifle was benched before the stock was replaced with very good results. I plan to bench it with the new stock and compare the before and after. Once that's completed I'll do what's needed.

My rifle was better with the barrel preloaded at the front of the forearm. I free floated it once and it didn't work for me.
I have some ideas on installing an adjustable preload device in the barrel tray if needed.

This stock was designed around the Ruger, Nodak, Kidd (no rear tab), and Tacsol actions. Magpul wanted compatibility with a lot of the stuff out there, but there are just so many options for the 10/22, that they couldn't fit them all. They shot for center mass and I think they have a good hit with this stock.

I'd love to see some pictures.

I just received my MagPul stock I have kidd receiver, trigger group, and ultra liight bull barrel. It was a very snug fit getting it into the stock. I do not have any gap at the back of the receiver like I have seen and heard of in prior posts.

Love to see another washingtonian!

If possible would be great to see some pics of the snug fit with your kidd action, sounds like a great set up, how is the balance with the ultra light tube?
