I just picked up a used base 10/22 with the birch stock. I am looking to get either an OEM Ruger synthetic stock, which go for pretty cheap used ($35 shipped) or a Hogue overmold (~$70 shipped). It seems the Hogue will be 'softer' and probably of a higher quality, but can you all recommend which one you would go with? I am on a limited budget and will be shooting mainly at a range or occasionally out in a field. No bench shooting or competitive target practice. Thanks in advance. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
