Three years ago, the Austin-based maker of everything AR came out with this 10/22 stock, the Hunter X-22. This spring, I finally got my hands on one. It's the main beam of a ridiculously accurate Volquartsen Summit 17 Mach 2 that I can't stop shooting. It's also the stock used by KIDD Innovative Designs, makers of insanely accurate 10/22 clones. If the best 10/22 builders in the world are using Magpul, you know something real is going for it. The X-22 comes with an innovative buttstock spacer system for varying length-of-pull from 12.5 to 13.75 inches, plus fore end M-LOK slots at three, six, and nine o'clock for bipods, lights, lasers or anything else you want to hang off your rifle. The barrel channel has a tray to easily free-float sporter barrels, or you can remove it for or .920-inch bulls. Unlike a lot of inexpensive plastic and rubberized stocks, the X-22 is rugged as hell. I'm a huge fan of the overall lightweight (2.6 pounds), and the 60-degree pistol grip, too. It all adds up to a fast, great handling rifle platform. If your dad, like me, chases bushy tails in the fall and messes with .22 builds in the winter, you can't go wrong here. —M.R.S.
