i thought about a hogue but im not sure. I'd like to know what ya'll perfer. Im just looking for a cheap but decent stock for my 10/22 project any ideas. The reason im leaning away is i HEAR its not real stiff and will flex with a sling. I've been searching but i either run into a hogue or 300-500 stock.

Every 10/22 I've ever shot was with a Hogue stock or the ruger factory stock. The Hogue was a great stock.

I cut the OEM stock to A1 length and installed a flat buttplate; it makes a good trainer for an AR-15 or a Garand.

For what your looking for, the Hogue really is your best bet. The stock flexing stuff is largely over blown. A lot of guys use Hogues on their Appleseed training rifles (which is all slung up style shooting) and don't seem to have any problems qualifying.

The Hogue's I've had (2) had no noticeable flex. If you get a Hogue and the barrel is not completely free floated, it's not hard to remove some material to make sure it's FF. You can also add some bedding material in between the ribs in the barrel channel to make the forearm more solid if you want.

All that said, if you still decide against the Hogue then I think you would be better off going with a good basic laminated wood stock. If you can find one, the factory laminated stock that comes with the 10/22T is pretty nice for the money. The factory "Deluxe" walnut stock is pretty nice too, especially if you are sticking with the factory barrel. The Revolution TrailBlazer stock is a good basic wood stock with a rollover cheek piece.

The Hogue with the plastic overmoulding as opposed to the rubber seems to be a little stiffer, but I think the flex issue is of little consequence. I would also take a look at teh B&C stocks. I have used 2 of them and was very happy with them

I prefer the laminated stocks from the factory T models.
