My 10/22 has two splits in the stock right at the top where it mates up to the receiver. One on each side.
I took the scope off also because I have the wrong attaching hardware.
This has possibilities.
Whatever I decide to replace the current stock with is most definitely not going to be made out of wood.
The very first thing I read about this set up wasn't very encouraging though.
From the Muzzelite website;
MUZZELITE BULLPUP RIFLE STOCK
for the Ruger 10/22
Muzzelite stocks have been a safe and effective alternative stock for many years. While there have been no reports of injury, it has come to our attention that in some cases, dimensional differences in receivers may allow some rifles to move within a Muzzelite stock. In that event, an unintended discharge is theoretically possible. If you have any question about your rifle in its Muzzelite stock, please call 1-800-428-9394. If you have concerns, we can help you arrange to ship your rifle for examination. Shipping costs would initially be borne by you. If your rifle and receiver combination permits any movement of the rifle within the stock, we will upgrade your stock with two alternative parts, re-install the rifle, test it for function, and return it. If your rifle requires upgraded parts, the upgrade will be done without charge and your shipping costs refunded to you.
Yeah, that's kind of weak bullshit.
"It might be fucked up but you won't know unless you pay to have it shipped to us first" kinda thing doesn't fly with me.
Especially when we are talking about the possibility of an "unintended discharge" because the parts don't fit right!
So, now that I have had time to think about it, that attitude alone just cost them a sale.
Sorry guys, having to roll the dice when I shell out hard earned money for something that I may need to protect myself and my family with doesn't cut it.
That's just my opinion anyway.
