    I want to give a Ruger 10/22 to my daughter for Christmas and plan to carve a wildlife scene into the stock to make it special. After looking at the various stock models, I decided I like the Sporter stock the best as it would allow me room to carve oak leaves, acorns and the fishsale pattern as well. So far so good.

    I'd much prefer to give her a stainless model and the Sporter doesn't come in stainless :( So my question is, "If I could find a Sporter stock to carve, would if fit the stainless steel carbine model?"

    Anyone have a spare 10/22 Sporter stock they'd sell to me?

    Yes it will fit.

    Have you considered buying an aftermarket stock?

    I did consider. All the wood stocks I found were either laminated [no good for my purpose] or they cost as much as the original gun :(

    It seems that Ruger makes the exact configuration I want [stainless steel w/ sporter stock] exclusively for Wal-mart. Closest Wally selling guns is 30 miles away. Next closest is 75 miles away and past 4 which do not sell guns. On the brighter side, they told me I could call to ask and when they have gotten one in, they will hold it for me for a few hours.

    Apparently they are sold the same day they come in most times.

    I have a 10/22 with a Sporter stock and it's actually pretty nice. Much nicer than the original stock in my opinion.

    I was going to leave it in stock configuration but If you could come up with a Hogue Overmold stock in ghillie green (like this one: http://www.midwayusa.com/viewProduct/?productnumber=795281) I might be tempted to part with it :)

    They have them on eBay ... I was just looking there last night for a Magnum Stock. A few of the Hogue Overmolded stocks there ... good prices too.

    The stainless carbine, with synthetic stock, was under $250 at Wal-mart. I bought the 10/22 performance mods DVD from www.TheWorks1022.com and immediately tore the rifle apart to slick up the action and modify the bolt lock.
