Ruger 10/22 Rifle -- Stock extension?

I really like this rifle but was wondering if there is a way to somehow extend the shoulder stock?? Anyone know of a way to do this with aftermarket stuff or another fairly inexpensive way?
Thanks everyone.

There is a buttpad that is a good 1 in. thick. I put one on my 96/22M since the plastic pad was slippery. Now the rifle stays put when I work the lever and the LOP is better. I think you can find one on EBay for around 10 bux.

There are some extended butt plates that add a little length to the stock.

But if you look around you can find an aftermarket stock isn't really that expensive and a much better choice in my opinion. I like the Rugers, but the only factroy stock I can handle is the Deluxe.

You can sometimes find them used on e-bay etc. The Hogue isn't bad on a 10-22 either. Wouldn't want one on a centerfire.

This one worked for me !!

You did not mention what model you have but if it's the basic Carbine then the provided link is the one I have used in the past. Not to extend but wanted pad or buttplate that does not easily slide. Worked out just fine and did not cost much. ...
