Thanks to everyone for the big response. As most of you know my local supply of stocks is long gone, and many of you have been sending them to me to be modified, in fact I think 5 more are coming this week. I've done a few different requests, including a tapco, a walnut, a tundra, and another laminate that I have no idea who made it. The tapco is much more intense, but comes out awesome. The walnut was a joy, very consistent wood. Brich can be finicky and want to chip. Laminate everything has to be very sharp to prevent chipping.

Donor stock available

I'm interested in one at $60. I have a standard stock available as a donor. Please let me know how you would like to proceed.

I like the idea of a wood stock on the takedown, and yes they look cool also. But doesn’t that kind of defeat the purpose of having a all weather pack gun?

Wood can be sealed up and good for most weather.

Were you really planning on shooting in a hurricane or blizzard? Is that why people are buying takedown guns?

You dont get bad weather in OH?

In a survival situation you might be in a hurricane or blizzard.

The Takedown is compact and easy to store.

Hope for the best and plan for the worse, its not gonna be 70's and sunny everyday..

I'm with RugerF on this one. I love good wood(what guy doesn't?), but for my TD it will stay as light and as weather resistant as possible. I currently ride a DRZ400, so in order for it to haul my fat 230lbs around I need to watch what I put on the back or in the bags...the TD is perfect for it.

Jr, you have found the elusive "nitch"...you do good work so the possibilities are endless

In a survival situation you're not shaving any dry tinder to start a fire off your plastic stock. That plastic doesn't get you too far in real survival. Wood is slightly heavier to carry in the bag though.

If you have to use your stock for kindling, my guess is you need to burn the whole rig........hoping this guy isn't serious.

I saw a laminated stock someone built for the takedown. But I don't remember where I saw it.

Its all in fun jrkull I don't think anyone would really think you were serious.

What would be a better quality, yet reasonably priced (<$100), synthetic stock to have modified for the takedown model? For the purpose I bought my takedown, I would want to retain the lightweight and weather resistant properties of a synthetic stock; however, the factory Ruger synthetic stock is pretty cheap on quality...I mean we're talking "BB gun cheap." I would want to stay with a traditional sporter style. If the barrel band is non-essential on the takedown model like it is on the regular 10/22, I'd prefer a stock that did not utilize one. I would also want one with sling swivel studs. Thanks!
