  • Nice stock

    Posted by Kobuddy on Apr 5th 2019

    I bought this stock to replace the original stock came with Ruger American Go Wild Camo in 7mm-08. The original stock was lighter but as I was swapping out the trigger, I have damaged the trigger guard section where one had to punch out the pin to access the bolt which I didn’t like. As if the AC magazine well was modified to its section to be added. Basically, no clear access to two bolts holding the barrel to its stock. Anyway, for this stock, I had to use total of 4 bolts to secure the barrel to the stock and the trigger guard, it is much better than the original stock that you had to punch out the pin to access one bolt. Make sure to use the bolts that came with. If you try to put the original bolts in, they would be too long (bolt will hit the protruded bolt inserted). Also, there are V-blocks you need to place them (check their heights too, cause depending on where you place them in the stocks, heights vary). I placed them to where barrel flushed with the line of stock (check to see if the stock and the barrel are parallel by looking from the side) Anyway, it is completely floated barrel, which I like. Magazine goes in very smoothly for my 7mm-08 (PMAG5 7.62 AC). I went ahead and bought extra 5 round and 10 round mags as well. They are fine! Looks great with bronze cerakoted barrel in FDE colored stock. I would recommend this stock for sure. Now for the accuracy, I have not tested far 2 MOA at 100 meters (109 yards) with the cheapest ammo I can find (Rem Core Lokt 140gr.). But Ruger barrel, it takes a bit longer to break in and copper fouling would help to squeeze the grouping, I think.
    I like the looks very much with new bolt shroud and handle and knob from AO as well.

  • Its a Magpul, got to be good

    Waited a long time for them to finally put it out for sale, but I think it was worth the wait, my ruger ranch is in 308 , i hated rugers mag and it worked but thats about all . Long story short its a great stock and worth the bucks

  • Magpul Quality but doesnt feed 223 or 300BO

    Posted by Treyh007 on Oct 30th 2018

    I was super excited when these stocks came in, I planned on using this with a Ruger Amer Ranch 223/556 or 300BO. The quality was typical Magpul excellence and the best option available for the money. They both mounted up perfectly and looked beautiful, unfortunately 223 nor 300BO (I tried 3 different brands of AICS 223 mags) would feed. I ended up sending the stock and mags back for refund. Will be going back to the old trusty Boyd’s Varmint I guess. I recommend these for 308 or 6.5 users but the rumor that these work with 223/300BO was a no go for me. I’m sure I could’ve tried to trim, tuck and bump the stock and mags but I wasn’t willing to waste all that money for a “might work”.

  • finally a good upgrade stock

    this is a great stock for the ruger american. I have a 6.5 creedmoor and the only reason this dont have a 5 star rating is because I have had some feed issues out of the mags but the fit and finish of the stock is awesome. It was easy to install and i love the adjustment of the length of pull. I would recommend it to anyone thinking about trying one.
