10/22 Boat Paddle Stock



Log in to see fewer ads
Hello everyone quick question about the boat paddle, what's the value on one of these? I just bought one off eBay for little over 35 dollars. Did I get a good deal? I know they are sought after by some, just want to know just in case I don't end up liking it and decide to sell it.

Thank you,
Hugh

Obviously it wasn't worth more than the $35 winning bid to the ebay audience. Like anything else... It's worth what you can sell it for. Not a penny more. Having said that there is probably someone out there willing to pay 60-70 bucks for it if you can find them.

Hi GH41,

Thank you for the reply, I got it pretty quick with in 20 minutes of the auction starting, either way 35 bucks shipped to my door and some of the profit went to a charity for Autism I should feel good about it, I know I've seen some people asking over 100 and wasn't sure if that was the norm for the boat paddle

Thank you,
Hugh

I have never owned one, but had a bunch of them thru my hands.. it screams RUGER!
That for some is why it's a keeper and/or sought after. If your a Ruger fan and a collector of sorts you need one. Some say it's fugly and some say it's sexy.. if I ever find one that is close to what you paid I will own one.. and I really am not a Tupperware fan.

Thank for the reply Chaser!
It does scream Ruger for sure, I'm definitely a Ruger fan, growing up that's all dad had, Does the Tupperware feel like the newer synthetic stocks? If I ever decide to sell it you'll be the first to know Chaser

IMO they all feel pretty much same same... but the Boatpaddle Butt being narrow and sculpted if you will feels more solid = obviously less hollow... Tupperware is Tupperware.

Sweet i do prefer the feel of the synthetic stocks far as the forearm grip. I bought a newer synthetic stock from S&P a week ago, Wood is dead gorgeous, but ultimately function out ways looks. Thank you for insight on the boat paddle, I have always wanted one. Up until recently i always thought they were only on the 77 series.

Sorry to be "that guy", but I'm new here and I have no idea what is being discussed. Could someone please explain the "boat paddle" stock, perhaps with a photo? So I'll know it if I ever see one...

I have a couple of them, one in a high powered rifle and one on a 77-22.

I wouldn’t go out to pay high dollar for one, but for what the OP paid, I would buy several. They certainly are durable which is what I think Ruger intended when they came up with the design.

Ah, now this makes sense..."narrow and sculpted if you will feels more solid = obviously less hollow..."

I suspect the new synthetic stock with the replaceable comb are going to also be emblematic of Ruger.

Thank you.
