    I buy all my gun parts from midway USA. Fast shipping. They have hella parts, stocks, barrels, trigger groups, spring sets. As far as the best, it depends what you want to build, a target rifle with a thumb thru stock ( like mine, archangel deluxe target stock $99) , or an ar looking rifle, or whatever. As far as quality u get what u pay for.

    Boyd's stocks What comes on them works fine for general use, hunting and plinking. Just use it as is. and see what others have do and go from there. Hogue has a nice overmolded stock that gives a good grip, is designed more like a normal rifle stocktoo and is lighter than orginal and can be bought for less than 60 bucks. Boyd's has maybe 5 stock designs that also just bolt in that will give different looks , Most cost under 100 dollars too.

    That's a sick stock, but I'm looking for more of a tactical look, something that IF I HAD to use it for protection it would look scary and not much like a 22 ya know?

    If you want a stock for hunting it all ready has it on the rifle. Most all of the rest is window dressing. Spend the money on a good sights or optics and good ammo.

    Imho the stock ruger is perfect as is, but a few cheap user friendly mods are nice.. Some come with the extended mag release, if not GET ONE. Get a spring set to drop ur pull weight down, and dremmil the bolt catch so it will auto release

    The original stock Works really nice for general use. If your money is as hard to come by as it is for me, my recommendation would be to upgrade the rifle's action- trigger, hammer, sear, springs, etc.- and leave the stock for last. Believe me, ANY rifle will have the "intimidation" look in a defense situation regardless of the look of the stock. Matter of fact, the very sound of a pump shotgun chambering a round is more intimidating than the look of any stock.

    If you must have a stock, look at the offerings of www.cheaperthandirt.com. They have a section dedicated to 10/22's.

    I'm a lefty also and have never had any kind of problem shooting "righty" guns at all including the 10/22. There are no true lefty 10/22's that I'm aware of which would mean the ejection port is on the left side. Any stock except some thumb hole and those with a roll over cheek pad can be shot lefty

    If you really want to intimidate someone take a stock looking 10/22 have upgrade the trigger like clark customs can sell you or have the barrels crown and chamber redone by que over at rimfirecenteral or sent it to clark customs for the same work and have a stock looking ruger that with quality ammo can shoot with bolt rifles ringing steel at 200 yards. Nothng intimidateing about some tacticool stock and add on junk. Makes most of use wonder is all. There is a difference between accurate for hunting and tactical worthless.

    The 10-22 was designed to be a light handy carbine for plinking and small game hunting. It does that very well in its basic stock form. If you want a tactical looking rifle get a S&W MP15-22. You will spend less money in the long run and a lot easier to clean. We have both. The best thing you can do to a 10-22 is clean up the trigger. There is a forum member that does it reasonably. The new 10-22's have plastic trigger groups so watch it. My current 10-22 was purchased used and it came with a Butler Creek sporter style stock. I did a very cheap $1 mod to the stock and it shoots very well with the stock barrel. It is capable of head shots on squirrels at 50 yards with 36 grn mini mags. It will also shoot very well with the standard synthetic stock with barrel band if you dont heat it up too much.

    Tapco intrafuse 1022 stocks awesome quality good mounting structures tactical and all around awesome in the pistol grip has enough space for me to put o 20 rounds of 22 ammo in it other than the normal woodstock it allows for a bipod flashlight excetra and a sling edit when you replace the stock you will notice that it will not be perfectly balanced because the woodstock or synthetic stock have a bouncing wate in the but of the stock
