Opinions on B&C Stock

I just bought a new 10/22 two weeks ago, my first rifle, and already I want to upgrade. Does anyone have experience with the Bell & Carlson Anschutz-style stock?

Bell and Carlson do make some pretty good stocks. While I "personally" am not a fan of synthetic stocks they certainly have there place. The Bell & Carlson Anschutz-style stock you make reference to is a good purpose built stock. You must answer a couple of questions before you pop for any stock.

What are "Your" intended use's for the new stock? In the case of this Anschultz style stock is was designed for Silhouette and for the Team Challange events. That doesn't mean it wont work for other use's but maybe your "Intended" use would be better served by another stock.

What type of sights are you going to use? The Anschultz stock by Bell and Carlson was specifically designed for Scope use, and works poorly with iron's.

Now with the above said if in reality you are just looking for a "COOL" looking stock ( and by the way there is not one thing wrong with that) and you are intending to only shoot with a scope ( probably a huge mistake for the guy who just bought his First rifle) then the Bell & Carlson Anschutz-style stock would be a good choice.

There are dozen's and dozens of stocks out there for the 10/22 shooter. Take a little time and look around some and don't make a hasty choice. Of course you could always have more than one stock for any rifle. I own 5 10/22's but I have 14 stocks for those 5 rifles.

I prefer the wood stocks over synthetic myself, just feels more solid... have you looked at the Boyds Blaster stock, its also a thumbhole style similar to that one.

the bell and carleson anschutz style stock is a great value for the money. i have even used them for remington 700 sniper rifle builds. it's no mcmillan, but way more stock than needed for a 10/22.

You build sniper rifles huh? What do you expect from your rifles after they are built? 2 MOA, 1 MOA, 1/2 MOA, sub 1/2 MOA? Pics? Practical applications?

My guns are 1 minute guns. Maybe in the hands of a better rifleman,
they could do better.

Fajen Silhouette Stock

I have a Fajen fixed Synthetic Silhouette Thumb-hole stock I got from optics planet for $80 shipped...

This stock is (minimally) floated for a .920 barrel...I would not hesitate to use it with a factory or tapered barrel but if I did I would get a VQ no-droop barrel to receiver gizmo...sorry I forget what they are called...

Fajen Legacy Series Ruger 10-22 Silhouette Stock - Fixed Position 577898 FREE S&H 577898. Fajen Gun Grips & Stocks.

http://www.battenfeldtechnologies.co.../?10/22-stocks

I have neck/shoulder problems and bought it primarily for ergonomics with no regard for what anyone else thinks about how they look...I wanted a thumb-hole stock with a lot of heel drop on a budget...

I absolutely wanted to stick with iron sights as much as possible for weight reduction...get the sights up to eye-level without neck strain and without putting extra-high iron sights on the front....this turned out to be a great purchase for me...

If you want to use iron sights the cheek-weld has to removable...period...

This stock is meant for and is great IMO for off-hand shooting but kind of sucks for bench-rest...the original factory stock is a walnut deluxe sporter which is infinitely better than the thumb-hole stock for sand-bagged target shooting...and a very nice piece of wood working IMO as well...

The B&C adjustable synthetic is going to be VERY heavy...and pricey too IMO...I also don't think the adjustments are really necessary if you have the Fajen synthetic-fixed it has removable butt extension and cheek weld that come off quick and easy and the stock is relatively easy to modify all around to whatever heel-drop and cheek weld you need...with half the weight or less...

If you get ANY wood or plastic stock with a molded in cheek weld you can forget about using any iron sights...

There are a variety of peep/military style iron sight and scope/picatinny rail combinations that will allow you to go back and forth from iron sights and scope by simply removing or replacing the cheek weld which only takes seconds to do...along with quick-release rings on your scope if you want the on/off the scope in a hurry...

Anyway not everyone is going to like this stock as much as I do but if do like the same features and flexibility I like this stock is a no-brainer for the price...

I am not knocking the B&C but I know for a fact it would not be anywhere near as nice for me...mostly due to weight...and also price...

If I was going to be dedicated to a scope and bull barrel I would get a wood silhouette/thumb hole stock with the amount of heel drop that suited me best (for me that is a Fajen) and you also want to have a real good idea of what scope/rings/rail you are going to use...that will tell you how much cheek weld and heel drop you will be most comfortable with...
