I really like the look and feel of the Hogue 10/22 stock but some people over at rimfire central say they are bad for accuracy because they are flexible. How true do you guys think that is?
Also can you paint a Hogue stock?
Does the Hogue stock come in styles that allow for thicker barrels?
Thanks

I have read they flex, but I don't shoot mine with a tight sling so I have not worried about it. Mine is the one for the .920" bull barrel . I don't know how well they'll take paint as they are rubber coated.....unless they have a non rubber coated version.

they do flex but most of the guys at rfc try to ring out as much accuracy out of the10/22 as they possible can

i had a butler creek stock on mine for awhile and didnt notice any major change in accuracy when i switched over to the bell & carlson but i was shooting mine off hand, no sling or off of a bi-pod

I've got a Hogue under my GM bull barrel. So they do make them for the larger barrels to answer your question. It may flex,however I'm not too worried about it on a rifle with an aluminum receiver and a barrel attached by two screws and an offset block. It does what I need it to do: shoot cheap ammunition reasonably well.
I don't think you could keep paint on the soft hogue stock. It would probably flake off in short order.

Got a hogue OM (.920) on mine and it shoots dime-sized groups at 50 yards as long as I can.

man, there are so many reinforcing ribs in the hogue stock, it can't flex too much!

also, my stock only has rubber in the foregrip/firing hand area and the buttpad. the rest is plastic or nylon so it should be paintable, right? just mask off the rubber bits...
