The Magpul Hunter American Stock for Ruger American short-action rifles has been talked about for a while, but has never been officially “released”. Finally, at the recent 2018 SHOT Show, Magpul announced that their Hunter American stock will be available in late May, 2018.
This stock is going to be a great option for those who are shooting the Ruger American short-action rifles, but need something better than the factory OEM stock. We have used both the Magpul Hunter X-22 and Hunter 700 rifle stocks and have found both to be a huge improvement over the stocks the rifles originally shipped with. The Hunter American stock has an MSRP of $299.95, which is a very good price for an aftermarket product of this caliber.
While at the recent 2018 SHOT Show, we asked Cris McRae from Magpul, Inc. to discuss the new stock, some of the features and pricing:
Listed below are the complete Product Details from the Magpul site:
