10/22 Youth Stock Options
« on: September 03, 2013, 02:27:49 am »
Anyone have a source for a youth stock for a 10/22 that isn't half the cost of the gun? My daughter (6) is almost ready to start popping cans, but before I go out and get a Savage Rascal for her (thanks again to schapm for pointing that gun out), I figure we should at least find out if she is actually interested enough to warrant the purchase. I promised my wife and myself that I would encourage her, but not force her, to learn to shoot, and thus far she has certainly shown interest, but has not yet dropped the hammer on a live round. Hence, I'd like to have her shoot one of the .22s I already have, but that stock on the 10/22 is looong, and she is tiny.

I know that Hogue sells a youth stock, but it is not much shorter than standard, and is about $80. Are there other quality options? Anyone have a take-off they want to sell?

I'm seriously considering just sawing a few inches off of the OEM stock. I'm not sold on the look, the wood is nothing to write home about, and I will probably replace it down the road anyway. Maybe I just radically shorten the OE stock, use it as an intro gun for the kiddos until they have proven themselves enough to have their own gun (I hope to have enough interest to make multiple purchases from Savage), then take the shortened stock off and drop in something nice for Daddy. ;)

Thoughts?

    I get my stocks from BoydsGunStocks.com  However, with shipping, you're looking at least $115 so that doesn't meet your criteria and they don't appear to have Youth Stocks.  I think you're best bet is to cut it down and then buy a new stock for yourself, if desired.
