Did Ruger make a 77/22 Hornet with a synthetic stock?

Not AFAIK.

Walnut and brown/laminated were the only cataloged stocks for the 77/22H.

Which is not to say that some enterprising soul adapted a synthetic stock from another 77/22 rimfire or centerfire, like the 77/44 All-Weather, to a walnut Hornet sporter.

I was thinking along those same lines, since the hornet is built on the 22 action how far of a stretch would it be to install a stock from a 77/22 or the 77/44?

The 77/22H is not the same action as the 77/22. 77/22 Mag or 77/44 actions. If you want a synthetic stock for it, you may want to talk to the folks at MPI Stocks.

It's been over 15 years, since I've owned a 77/22 Hornet - so I can't recall if Ruger simply changed the 77/22 bottom metal for the longer Hornet mag, changed the front half of the 77/22 bolt from RF to CF, and moved the 77/22 bolt stop further back - or if it was the same/different(?) action as the 77/44, I also once had long ago.

CRS can be a PITA. :)
