Would someone tell me which model has the grey plastic type stock with "RUGER" embossed in the butt stock. Are they still manufactured? Thanks

i think the one you are refering to is what some call the boat paddle stock- and i am pretty sure they do not make them anymore- but you can find them for slae on ebay and gunbroker- i sold a couple myself a while back because i do not care for them-

What don't you like about them? Just because they are not wood? The appear to be bullet proof.

The only part I don't totally understand, is GRAY. The All-Weather stocks for a 77/22 are of a more resilient material that turns gray with age, whereas the All-Weather stock for the 10/22 is of harder plastic, and I've not seen them turn gray with age.

WAYNO.

Unique, but why? when there's God-made black walnut available?

I took mine afield once, and though it was super-lightweight, it sounded like I'd dragged a bag of child's toys into the woods every-flippin' time it contacted a twig or blade of grass. And I never found myself sitting in a ray of morning sunlight, turning it so as to discover new grain or depth of figuring...

They're out there on GB and of course on anti-Bill of Rights Ebay.

They did make some gray stocks but none were ever put on guns and shipped.

So, MADDOG 521...Many of us are here to learn, also. Have any of your questions been answered?

And, ruger66...I did not know about this all-gray stock. If it was never distributed, what's the story behind it?

Thanks.

WAYNO.

I was curious about them. I have never owned one and what I've been reading I won't buy one. I didn't think about the noise they would make bustin' brush but it makes sense. Probably very durable but not practicial. Thanks for the comments.

As far as practical...For me, in a very wet State, these synthetic stocks are extremely practical. Everybody has their own experiences and opinions. :D

WAYNO.
