I also wanted to change the stock on it. The "bump" was to far forward for my hand so i carved it and sanded it to my liking.



It feels much better in my hand now. Next is a butt stock extension..

Thanks for the help getting my scope sighted Jim.

This was my best 10 shot group at 25 yards,



I zeroed it at 50 yards, it shoots MUCH better than I do.

My scoped ready to rock 10/22. EVERY American should own one of these great rifles. I just dig mine.

Sad thing here.. I envy the T-shirt weather..

My last visit to the range. 27 degrees.

Ruger looks great. I have 2. I have 1 with wood stock (factory) 1 with a Folding stock, muzzle brake, sling.. Both were made in 1975.. 1 digit off on serial #..

Great rifle. Wishing you a brick of ammo for Christmas !!

Umm. What stain and finish are you planning for the new fresh wood ?

You might want to think about refinshing the whole stock now. Will be tough to try to get the stain to blend and look uniform.

I agree, now that I know I like the new shape I will most likely sand it down by hand and stain it, then seal it.

I have NO idea what stain or what to seal it with. Input very welcome...
