Strong/light weight 10/22 stock?



Log in to see fewer ads
I'm looking for a strong, light 10/22 stock. I do a bit of hiking on some of our private land, and want something strong, but light weight. I have a ATI stock on it now, but it doesn't allow a larger barrel. Any ideas? Would like to have sling mounts as well. (Gonna be all Kidd stuff, ultra light barrel, with a Ruger receiver etc...)

Nate

p.s. I was looking at the Fox defense kit, but it looks weak... any input from owners?

I recently saw and handled a friend's 10/22 in a Magnum Research ambidextrous, thumbhole stock. It seemed to be light-weight, rigid and strong. My friend said the action was a tight fit and there appeared to be absolutely no wiggle of the rifle in the stock. Not beautiful, but functional and reasonably priced (link below). There's also the Hogue stocks -- both loved and hated. And there are many other choices too.

pretty sure the lightest would be the knoxx axiom will be similar to your ati can be bought for about $60

if your into hiking you might want to look at agp takedown stuff

they also sell 10$ factory stocks and its hard to beat how light they are and they are pretty tough.

As far as the kit fox I dont think he is making them anymore and how could it look weak it is machined from aluminum?
IMO the kit fox will not be lightweight.

Thanks Toys4guns, That is some good info.

I have 2 factory Ruger stocks laying around that I might try to mess with.

Yeah the Titan weighs a little over 3 lbs. You can build an entire rifle that weighs around 3 lbs.

I did a build using the Knox Axiom stock. I swapped out the butt stock with a Mag Pul Carbine stock. I used a TS fluted barrel, Tech Sights peep aperture Sights, Upgraded the bolt and trigger. This is the rifle I grab when I think 22lr it weighed 3.75 lbs in this configuration and then I added a Luepold 2.5 fixed power Ultra Lite scope and their 10/22 mount and rings which took the weight up to 4.5 lbs. I actually like this gun much better at this weight and the added accuracy is a plus. I like this stock and would use it again if the need arises.

I felt one of those, very light weight, but no sling swivels and not very strong (for a hiking/backpacking gun, one fall and I could see that stock breaking in half)

Those $10 plastic Ruger stocks are very light. They are also easy to relief the barrel channel and cut down and install sling studs. In addition the butt plate can be pried off and the hollow stock used to store stuff in i.e, cleaning stuff, survival stuff, extra ammo etc. I have several of those stock I put on Appleseed rifles as loaners. They are used hard but are still good after three years.
