For the record a Hogue on a centerfire would be my last choice. They are OK on a 10-22, but I don't like them at all on centerfires.

But to answer your question. I've had one on a 10-22 for a years with no problems. I do suspect that if they were exposed to a lot of sunlight you would see some breakdown sooner than with other stocks. The soft rubber coating is over a harder plastic interior. While I've never seen it happen, I'd also suspect that if dropped on something hard, such as rocks or concrete the coating could tear.

My complaint is with the ergonomics and extreme weight on larger rifles, not with accuracy or durability. They add some weight to a 10-22 that helps and those stocks are not as bulky, fat and clunky as the centerfire stocks.
