Ruger Stocks

Can one buy Ruger rifle stocks directly from the factory? I would like to get 7mm-08 in a laminate but id doesn't come in a laminate, so need to buy the stock and then put on. Thanks

Dave

But I'd assume you can order stocks from Ruger just like any other non-fitted part.

They make a M77 MKII Frontier in that caliber in laminate. Next rifle I buy. Except maybe a .308 in an AR platform. Or another #1 in a big bore. Or a 77/22. Dammit, now a gotta go regroup!

I've kind of wanted to buy one in 375 H&H. I have ABSOLUTELY no need for it, and don't know which would give out first shooting it, my wallet, or my shoulder. Still like it.

45-70 would probably get more use. The .375 Ruger intrigues me, but I'm leary of its longevity. If it's gaining momentum in ten years??? Different story.

I think you would like the #1 375H&H. I have one and its awsome. I have shot several whitetail deer with it. I used to use Speer 270gr bullets but I have found them not to open up. I have switched to 270gr Hornady and they are devistating and open up nicely. Recoil is managable. My dad has a 338 WIN Ruger M77MKII and its pulverizes your shoulder. I folded a heavy welding glove in half and put between the but plate and my shoulder. After the shot, the Ruger emblem was stamped into the welding glove. It is the hardest kicking gun I have ever shot, my teeth litterly rattled. It kicks far harder than my 458 win mag. Compared to these to latter cartridges, the 338 and 458, my 375H&H Ruger #1 is a pussycat.

I have heard of that before. I have also heard they will factory fit a same style stock to the action for a price or as "warranted" work. I understand they have no expressed warranty.

They're not official Ruger stocks, but have you looked at Boyds stuff? BOYDS The World's Foremost Supplier of Hardwood Gunstocks. They might have something suitable.

Thanks for all the input, I'll keep looking online, gunbroker, etc.

In regard to Boyd's I like the stocks, just don't understand why thet don't checker them. Ruger even got with the program and started checkering their laminates.
