5 years ago I had 3 rifles, all 22LR. Today I have 12 and 5 are RF.

I'd buy a T/C Compass (or Savage Axis or whatever), probably .223 Rem. Less than $300.

It is disappointing that you don't...

About a year ago a batch of pink Hogue-stocked 10/22 Target (bull barrel) models hit the market for about half the price of the standard.

It looks like a couple of laminate strips were colored green and got mixed in with the tan and brown. Their pics on the website don't have green so I'd think they'd replace the stock for you.
