I got a request from a customer asking for a walnut Ruger 10 22 stock. Most of the sites that I found us CNC routers to build stocks. Unfortunately I don’t have access to a CNC so what are my options?

search ruger 10 22 stocks and find the cheapest nylon stock you can get for a pattern. that gun is one of the most popular mass-produced guns ever made and aftermarket parts are plentiful.

I’ve built a couple stocks just using the rifle as reference but it a bit of a pain. Look up someone like Hal, and have him make you a blank then finish it yourself.

You need the rifle to make the stock, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to duplicate the stock with hand tools.

I’ve got a spare stock I could ship to you that you can use as a model—it’s a wooden stock, so that might give you a helpful idea or two?

You’ll need to know the size barrel he wants on the rifle (factory, or target? – big difference in diameter.
