Here is my Ruger Hawkeye in it's new stock, a Hogue over molded with a full aluminum bedding block. It fit perfect, and after putting it in the stock I checked it and it is free floated all the way to the receiver. It is lighter than my wooden stock was an actually throws up and meets my should better. It really handles well and I love the feel of the pistol grip. Nice indeed.

I was very impressed with the fit and finish, in fact, I was shocked at how well it was put together and there were no un-smooth places or ragged spots on the in side and the aluminum block was also finished very nicely. As some of you know I ruined my wooden stock but before I ruined it I could only get the rifle to shoot if I free floated the barrel. When I did this I had 1/4" groups with some loads. This will be my main 30-06 in my load work.

My Gun Smith ordered it because he owed me some difference on a trade, all I know is that Brownell's has them.

Now that is the best looking "green" gun I have seen ... I really like the turn/twist of that bolt ...

Yes, it turned out better than I thought it would in looks, but the construction of the stock for the money is what really surprised me and especially when I dropped the rifle in the stock it fit like a glove custom made for my hands. Really amazing, I thought I would be doing some adjusting and fitting but this truly is a fine drop in stock. It was so cool to be able to run a sheet of paper between the stock and barrel that looks like it fits so tight and not once did the paper catch on anything. In fact I tried it four times just to make sure. Yes, now the rest is up to me at the range. Can't wait to get out and pop some caps, make some smoke and kick up some dirt at the range. I am so glad that I waited for this stock, it is so well built for the money and I love how it feels in my hands but also how well it throws up and fits my shoulder. I am really happy with this stock. :):) Yep, going to be some game hit the ground with my 30-06 commanding DRT. :)
