Rhineland Arms RA-22 Stock



Log in to see fewer ads
I built this about 10 years ago. At the time when this stock presented itself it was IMO the best I'd seen. Even strolling thru the AR style options on the forum currently, i still like this one over anything i see.

Just wondering how many others on here used this stock as well, i dont see any like it. Shortly after building this, I dropped off the forums for a long long time, so i dont know how long of a run this stock had.....

Much as i like it, i currently am interested in changing things up a bit, I have a hogue overmolded in OD green on the way to try out. Trying to decide whether to build up another barreled action for this RA-22 stock, or just unload it if i like the hogue.

I'd definitely keep the Rhineland. You don't see those everyday, and if you sell it and then decide you want another, it would be hard to find. Here's the Rhineland I'd like to find.

How much did you sell it for? If you don't mind me asking.

Here is mine. I love this stock. I paid $80 (military discount) for it shipped directly from Rhineland Arms in 2006. I wish they still made it.

Is it just me? It seems like everytime something decent is made- it goes out of production.

No, when something decent is made, it doesn't go out of production, it just stays backordered or out of stock. This has never been the case with Rhineland Arms...

I don't know about Rhineland Arms but things that are expensive to mfg (EG: well made) can and do go out of production. (Item too much for market demand, low market demand due to high cost. As item price increases-market decreases.)

Then there are the always present bean counters that will screw-up a great design with design revisions that lower production cost- at the cost of alienating those who are purchasing the item for certain design features.

On the back-ordered or out of stock aspect, not being able to satisfy market demand due to insufficient production capacity can result in losing business as well. People will/can only wait so long for a product, at some point they have to source the item from another source.

By your description, they fit all 3...
