Worth the time or not?

My new 10/22 wood stock has low and high spots on it. I discovered it while wiping it down and felt the dips. Should I contact Ruger?

I would just keep it since you didn't notice it until you were cleaning it.

Or you can refinish it.

Or get a new stock.

Or like some, complain and make Ruger give you the product you deserve!

I would shoot it and enjoy.

Welcome!

I woodn't bother. It doesn't effect function and it doesn't sound like it's all that noticeable, especially if it's the less expensive "hardwood" stock. To me that's like getting all excited about a small knot in a 2X4.

If it's a wood stock, and you want a nice wood stock, perhaps you should find a nice older walnut stock on eBay for your 10/22.

It is the walnut stock on the M1 Carbine model.

Being the walnut stocked model, I'd complain.

To me, those are supposed to have a rough and tumble GI issue rugged sort of feel about them.

The M-1 wasn't a glamorous sporting rifle. It was a handy utilitarian piece of equipment that got the job done.

I think I would be disappointed if it was too refined.

I agree. I consider mine a 'field' gun and and feel it show that it is experienced.
