Makes A 10/22 Into An M1 Carbine Look-Alike
Replacement stock turns your 10/22 into a realistic looking stand-in for an M1 carbine without altering any part of the action. Easy drop-in fit for any 10/22 action with the standard 18½" tapered barrel. Original M1 stock parts were used to make steel patterns for automated precision lathes that cut raw European beechwood blanks into finished stocks in the unmistakable M1 shape, including the cutout in the butt for the original GI oiler/sling retainer (not included). After milling, every stock is inspected for flaws by test fitting to a 10/22 barreled action before sanding with 300-grit media for an ultra-smooth surface. USGI model is stained to replicate the dark red-brown of the original USGI tung oil finish before application of a protective polyurethane sealer. Natural model receives polyurethane sealer only; wood is unstained, giving it a pleasing light blond color. Both models include a stamped steel buttplate with horizontal anti-slip grooves, sling swivel loop, upper handguard, and barrel band. Even includes the original M1 Carbine op rod cutout that now serves to help ventilate the 10/22 barrel.
