Video: Hogue Introduces Tactical Thumbhole Rifle Stocks for 10/22 Rifles

Hogue Inc. has released one-piece, OverMolded Tactical Thumbhole–style rifle stocks for .920-inch-diameter bull-barreled carbines.   Featuring a thumbhole/pistol grip design, an integrated cheek weld, a bench stop and a soft-rubber buttpad, Hogue’s new thumbhole rifle stock is designed to work with optics.

The OverMolded rubber covering is a durable, comfortable, recoil-taming material that’s impervious to dirt, grime and moisture.

Said designer Pat Hogue, “It’s a departure from our traditional rifle stock designs in some ways, but we think this new design will have strong appeal to target shooters, varmint hunters, and competition shooters.” The forend on the Tactical Thumbhole models is wider and curvier than the company’s Sporter-style rifle stock for more stability when used without a bipod.

The high comb enhances fast target acquisition through a riflescope, and the bench rest hook offers different shouldering options depending on the shooting situation. Designed primarily for 10/22 rifles with heavy barrels (.920-inch diameter), the new stock will also accommodate standard contour barrels.

Tactical Thumbhole rifle stocks will be available in Black, OD Green, Flat Dark Earth, Ghillie Green, Ghillie Earth or Purple. Hogue’s Tactical Thumbhole 10/22 stocks are also available for two-piece takedown style 10/22 carbines for both standard and .920-inch-diameter barrels.

  1. Gentlemen, have to agree. Hogue makes so many fine products and have use Hogue pistol grips on most of my pistols. This is one product that should have never seen the light of day. Recoil taming indeed. Now, if this product was useful for a .338 Lapua, it may well be a different story.

  2. REALLY!!! we need this because that .22 kick knocks out your shoulder every time. We all need that recoil-taming material to make it more comfortable to shoot. We are all tired of having to go to the emergency room to get our shoulder popped back into place.

      Haha thanks for making me laugh. I totally agree with you. This is one of those CTD articles that never needed to be written.
