I just purchased a used Ruger M77 MkII w/the old skeleton style synthetic stock and I don't really care for it. Does anyone know of a place online to purchase a new Hogue or other brand of stock for this rifle. Also, should it be a "bolt-in" stock or would it need to be custom fit to be accurate?

I appreciate all the advise.

Paddle Stock

The old paddle stock is sure ugly but it is a very good bedding platform for the barrelled action making the gun accurate. It is also relatively light. Ruger just came out with a new synthetic stock if you can wait 6 months before they become available from Ruger as a part.

Thanks...

It's not crucial that I get a replacement stock right away so the 6 month wait isn't too bad. I would like to get a look at a Hogue or others and if I like them drop the cash and pick them up. Looks are not to bad for me on the OE Stock that's on the gun, but it's not that comfortable when I put my face up next to the butt stock when shooting.
