So i did a little looking and finding a stock for a Ruger 96/22 is next to impossible.
It looks like a Ruger 10/22 mag stock can be modified to fit the 96/22 action, which i guess is an option. The thing is, this particular 96/22 was the first gun I could call my own, and would really like to keep it the same as the day i got it. I've put many thousands of rounds through that particular rifle and don't want it to have a 'makeshift' stock. Side note, i also have 96/22 mag and hope to acquire the 96/17HMR and 96/44mag someday.
What I'm hoping to do not now is to find someone who can make a custom stock that would essentially be a replica of the OEM stock.
Referrals to custom stock makers welcomed.
