Thumbs up 10-22 + scope



Log in to see fewer ads
My 10-22 is the DSP model, and I have to raise my head to see through the scope properly. I think the stock's comb needs a little bit more height to make it more comfortable using the scope. The rings are the lowest I could get for scope bell clearance.

I bought one of the lace-on, saddlebag sort of things, but that was not quite "it"! It does lack elegance!(Is UGLY, too!)
I have the DSP, which is a good looking rifle, IMO, and I don't want to mar the stock in any way, or farble the looks as little as possible.
I have seen a company that makes a stretchy, fit-over thing with different thickness pads, which look like it will work, but I think it may be for full-sized stocks, which would slide around on my 10-- and 77-22 stocks. They haven't answered my inquiry yet.

Can anyone offer suggestions?
Thanx!

I've been using this Voodoo Tactical cheek rest on my DSP and it has worked well. I only have the Tech Sights on it at the moment though. It does come with an insert to get more lift which may come in handy depending on the height of your scope. It fits snug and doesn't move when it shouldn't.

They also have another one with a removable ammo carrier that goes higher.

Another thread discussing cheek risers as well: https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums....php?t=1039434

What size scope do you have on your rifle? If it has a 40MM or larger bell your scope mounts are probably causing you to have the cheek weld problem. I removed the rear sight on my DSP because the 40MM AO would not clear it with the lower rings.

I am using the Beartooth product and I am pretty happy with it. The sleeve material is comfortable against the cheek, and it is less obtrusive than many I have seen.

beartooth here too. they supply a good range of inserts in different thicknesses. you can even double them up if needed

once you get it on and the pads placed where you want them... it stays put

My 10/22 came with a weaver scope already mounted.

The only thing I did when I got home was to remove one screw at a time and put blue locktite on each one.
It is perfect for me. It sighted in with less then a BX-25 magazine used.
Ruger has them in a nice ruger plastic case and already installed.
I did get four BX-25 Magazines at the same time.

Use a heat gun to bend a 6"x 6" square of Kydex over a piece of pipe. Use stick on Velcro to mount it so no damage to the stock. I have done this to several stocks. Another option is to remove and store the stock and go to Boyd's for a nice laminate stock designed for a scope.

If it needs just a bit, one of these might work (the shotgunners wedge).

Does add some weight.

Wish somebody made the euro stick on types here..........

I was tempted by a couple of DSPs locally with nice wood.
But my tolerance for woodwork is gone.
Plus they'd have needed some comb change.

My solution was to just say "screw it" and get a Victor Titan stock.
It's not wood and with the texture areas being bumpy, not checkered I'm not going to get it film dipped.

Too bad nobody makes the old fingergroove type of stock.
Closest non custom thing I've seen is a McMillan.

IMHO Ruger dropped the ball on the 50th yr deal by not doing a checkered fingergroove in synth. Black w stainless rec/bbl...........it'd have been perfect blend of old and new.

And.........we could have the stock film dipped later.
