View Full Version : Hogues Overmolded stock for hunting rifle?

06-10-2012, 9:54 PM
Im looking for a stock to replace the skeleton stock on my Ruger m77 markII in 270. The factory stock seems to flex quite a bit. looking for a new mid-light weight stock, and hopefully improve the rifles accuracy a little.

with a budget of 200$ i think the Overmoled stock seems like a winner but wanted to see if any one had experience with this stock or recommend a different one.
this is the stock i was looking at (http://www.midwayusa.com/product/938744/hogue-overmolded-rifle-stock-ruger-m77-mark-ii-long-action-standard-full-bed-rubber-black?cm_cat=Cart&cm_pla=ProductDesc)

Works great on my bunny 10/22 and I plan on getting one for my 30.06 savage. They do come standard on plenty of Howas and even on Rugers Alaskan .375 rifle. Should work fine.

I have one on my `10/22 and my AK I love Hogue's when I get off my *** and build a 700 it will probably be on one too.

Honestly I'm gonna be the odd man out here and say that I don't like my Hogue overmolded 10/22 stock. It feels really cheap and it's not fit 100% to the rifle -- there are spots where it looks like the cutting was done in little Timmy's 4th grade arts and crafts class. I still use it because of that nice rubberized grip but I feel ripped-off.

the only other one i was looking at was the B&C carbelite, butliked the overmolded because of the full aluminium bed. i would think that the stock they make for the M77 MarkII would be better than the one they make for the 10/22. but i cant say for sure as i have held neither...
