Stiff synthetic stock



Log in to see fewer ads
Any input on a stiff synthetic sporter stock appreciated. I would like to shoot it with a tight sling in sporter competition. Thinking about hogue hard nylon or Ruger modular stocks. If forends flex quite a bit, then I'll go with laminated wood. If you have experience, thanks for some input.

Magpul X-22 stock. Very stiff and tight. Excellent stock. It does not come with the high comb. That is an option.

I have both and I prefer the X-22, myself. I have two of them and I am a walnut stock guy. If I had the choice of a pretty walnut stock, then that is were I'd go. The X-22 is stiff and very adjustable. JMHO

The Bell and Carlson stock offerings are actually a very nice stock, and more on the rigid side. Slightly more spendy but not crazy.

BTW, I know you said sporter, but I have a barely used Bell and Carlson "Target" style synthetic--this one, in the Black and gray web color--that will be going up for sale shortly.

I'd put money that the Titan stock is stiffer than any out there...

Agreed, that Titan stock seems excellent, but not quite what I need. I may wind up going with wood.

stock

I have had flex trouble with some of the plastic stocks also, The cure is, I've been using the Boyds Tacticool laminated stock for CMP sporter with a Green Mountain heavt taper barrel and modded 3# trigger. It's a hammer. No stock flex with a tight sling. The laminate is birch, I think, so it's not to heavy. I had to wrap the barrel with a few layers of tape and add bedding material the length of the forend to get the gap minimized. Very nice for position shooting, and I'm going to try it for NRL22 as well. The only synthetic stock,that I know of, that would fit your needs would be the Titan/Victor I think I'm going to try one on a .920 barrel build.

Here's a very nice laminated stock.. Revolution Explorer Laminated Wood 10/22 Bull Barrel Stock, Brown

It's basically the same style / design that Ruger used on the factory target rifle up until recently - see below.

He has several other color combo's to choose from. Very comfortable stock, I used have a Ruger Target rifle.

The Hogue nylon stock seems quite stiff, but the next stock I buy will be a Titan X

Don't forget McMillan. Fiberglass is almost always stiffer than injection molded plastic.

I've got the B&C sporter style on my LVT, had a local smith open the barrel channel.

Comb is a little low, but overall nice stock

I have a nylon Hogue. I picked it over other options as it is traditional sporter style. Most of the other stocks in that price range were either tactical, skeleton style or laminate.

The Hogue is rigid enough for a bipod and any sling arrangement. You really have to be exerting an abnormal amount of force to get any flex or twist. Certainly more than would be encountered in a normal shooting/hunting situation.

I have a full Kidd build in my Hogue, so quite a bit of money invested in the rig. I don’t mind spending more for a nicer stock, but honestly don’t see a reason to. My Kidd rides around in a 4 wheeler rack and the Hogue doesn’t scratch easily and is very durable. If I were to replace it, I would go with a Bell and Carson.
