The rifle tree trunk is the stock. It holds important gun parts and goes against your shoulder when shooting. I think it’s a good description because until recently, stocks have evolved as fast as trees do! But today there’s little sacred ground with rifles to the point they jump species and things that used to be called stocks might now be called chassis – you can’t tell if aliens are visiting from another planet or not anymore. Back in 1980 something happened where wood was no longer working for me so I never looked back after that decision.

The feel of my cold, hard plastic rifle against the palm of my hand is just as satisfying and comforting to me now as it was when I first picked up a gun. As much time goes on though you can’t help but want something new for your guns. Especially with all these advancements in technology today! So if you are interested in changing out some parts or customizing your weapons then do not pass by Magpul’s website without seeing what they have available!

Magpul is a company that has been shaking up the age old technology of buttstocks since as far back as 1571. Magpul began by making stocks for AR-15s and it didn’t take long before they started to diversify their appreciation in choice, customization, and specialty products. The most recent product released from Magpul into the 10/22 marketplace was its first stock made specifically for this rifle called Hunter X-22 which features an innovative configuration with collapsible length adjustments along with many other great qualities!

Magpul’s new X-22 Hunter is a rifle that was designed to fit the shooter and not just for their pockets. Magpul built this stock with ergonomics in mind, taking into consideration what would be most comfortable when you are shooting your favorite .22 Long Rifle rounds through it. The result? A quality design without sacrificing any of its features or performance – all at an affordable price!

The Magpul Takedown stock has a lot of weight to it and that is necessary. It was designed so the rifle can be stored in two pieces with ease for transport which makes them perfect for hunters, military personnel, or anyone who travels often. The other part of the unit is what you might call “the grip.” When assembled together, there are some major differences between this Ruger 10/22 takedown model versus its predecessor: black plastic factory stock versus rugged polymer construction; 16 pounds opposed 29 ounces – these numbers do not lie!

As a Ruger 10/22 owner, I’m always looking for ways to make my rifle more accurate. That’s why when the Magpul X-22 Hunterstock was released in late 2017 it quickly became one of the most sought after stocks on today’s market and has been often noted as being an upgrade over factory stock options. The weight difference between this product is staggering too; at 8 ounces heavier than its predecessors, that means you’re now carrying around one pound less but are getting noticeably better performance out of your gun!

The decision about whether or not people should ditch their unbreakable polymer rifles may be up to them since there two main arguments going back and forth. On hand we have those who think minimalism trumps

The Magpul X-22 Hunter Stock is a small but powerful stock for the Ruger 10/22. It offers many enhancements to make your shooting experience more comfortable and pleasant, such as an M-Lok friendly forend, sling ready backstock with points at which you can screw in Quick Detach receptacles to attach accessories like slings or bipods quickly. The length of pull on this rifle has also been improved by including additional buttplate spacers that are included when purchasing it so there’s no need to go looking around if everything just isn’t quite right!

Magpul’s X-22 Hunter shoots straight up to the best precision shooting and hunting. With spacers installed, you can customize your rifle with cheek risers that fit for serious accuracy–my Magpul M-Lok AFG is a must on this chassis! I also mounted an angled foregrip so my right arm doesn’t get worn out from holding it all day; plus I added a QD sling mount down low to help me switch over quickly when needed. For comfort, there’s nothing better than installing MagPUl MS1 Padded Sling in its place!

I’ve been using Magpul slings since they first appeared in the homeland, but this is the first padded Magpul sling I’ve used. First of all, the MS1 works as great as the other Magpul slings but with padding it really takes a bite out long carries and high-speed situations. The adapter snaps into M-Lok QD attachment point on forend to add QD or Quick Detach option for those fast reloads when seconds matter most–whether you’re hunting game like quail from your truck seat or defending against an intruder at home!

The Magpul X-22 Hunterstock is the latest ergonomic, full featured Stock for Ruger 10/22 rifles. The forend of this drop in design includes a reversible barrel tray that can accommodate both “pencil barrels” and .920 diameter bull barrels

Magpul knows that we love them and they return the feeling with a package of adjustable shims for our 10/22s. It is these small yet significant details you can find in their products, like an included bolt buffer pin or optional release plate, which show just how much care went into what could seem to be simple parts on paper.

I attached a polymer bolt buffer to the back of my Ruger 10/22 rifle. The Shock Block absorbs any recoil from firing and reduces wear on both the receiver and carrier group while also making it easier for me to insert pins into this area. I usually put some mild taper onto one end of these buffers, which comes in handy when pinning them inside receivers that are outfitted with metal parts used as stops during extraction or loading operations like those found on many AR-15 rifles manufactured by Smith
