RAR 22LR in New Boyd Stock



Log in to see fewer ads
New Boyd stock came it. Drop in was perfect. I needed to free float the barrel though. 10 minutes with the dremel fixed that.

Range report is next

Nice! What did that add to the cost of your rifle? I don't care for the plastic stock on my American Predator. Maybe something like this would suit me better in the future. rc

That looks really great!

I have one of each Predator in the rimfire calibers.

I may need to change up the looks on a couple of them!

The base stock is 130ish. I had the LOP shortened to 12 3/4 so that brought it up to 161.


Well worth it in my opinion

Looking good!



I do wish that Boyds would make and sell RART fitting stocks. I have a standard barrel 22 inch in a RART factory stock and it shoot very well. The RART stock uses a shorter rear block with more wood under, and factory steel sleeves for the action screws.
, target barrel action blocks top, standard bottom.
the full disassembled RART. Note the sleeves and shorter rear block, plastic dipped metal trigger guard.
I feel the RART is a better action mount than the standard models RAR. My restocked 22 inch standard shoots very well and consistent.

I see the forend is milled out.

Is that standard or did you pay extra for that?

Thanks,

Jerry

I have 3 Boyds stocks all were milled out below the barrel channel when purchased. The barrel channels may have needed some fitting to accommodate the barrel dimension. KM

Yes, mine were too but I was getting some contact points on the barrel so it was a small mod then good to go.

Dave-Beautiful stock! I believe that's the Rimfire Hunter, correct? How do you find the fit with your scope--eye relief, cheek weld, etc?? I'm thinking of getting one for my RAR .22 WMR. Thanks!

For me, it's a perfect set up. I did some online surfing for reviews before I made the purchase and the little reviews I did find were all really positive.

Thanks for the reply, appreciate it. It IS the Rimfire Hunter, correct? The Pro Varmint looks in pics to have too large of a grip for my small hands. That doesn't seem to be a problem with the R.H. Yes? Thanks again!
