Ruger American Rimfire Stock



Log in to see fewer ads
I have been looking at the standard model Ruger American Rimfire 22 rifles at some of the local shops, on every one I have seen the barrel is off centered in the barrel channel, can this be adjusted out by loosening the stock screws and re tightening ? doesn't look like it could be sanded out either, not much there, looking to purchase one, thanks in advance.

Mine is like that also but so far its just cosmetic. It hasn't hurt the accuracy one bit. A Boyd stock would be ideal replacement which is what I am planning to do. Only other thing I thought about doing is have my son machine a piece aluminum bar stock into the web in stock then epoxy it.

You say off centered, but is the barrel actually touching the stock on one side? If it isn't actually touching the stock, it is just a cosmetic thing. I had to search a while to find one that was centered.

I just checked mine and it does not make contact. It doesn't look all that great, but mine shoots extremely well and I am not changing anything......................

I’ve using the factory stock just till I find a better one. The wrist is too flexible. Had the the gun in a bench setup put a little pressure on the wrist and watched the crosshairs move up and down

Yes, they're typically like that... And loosening the stock screws and retightening (and torquing properly) goes a long way to fix it.

Oh, but it can be sanded out. I used a sanding drum (1"?) to hog out the barrel channel on both of mine.

Mine shoot surprisingly well... With the right ammo, right around moa (17HMR) or even less (22lr).
