New Archangel 10/22 Stocks

purple archangel

Archangel Manufacturing will introduce a number of new 10/22 stocks at the 2016 SHOT Show. These new stocks are variants on the company’s existing 10/22 stock: the AAP1022 that was introduced at the 2015 SHOT Show.

The new stocks are functionally the same as the existing black stock, but are now available in new colors. The new colors are:

  • plinker purple,
  • bullseye blue,
  • olive drab,
  • ringmaster red, and
  • desert tan.

As with the original black stock, these are designed for easy installation and will work with both the 10-round and extended Ruger magazines. In fact, the polymer stock has a flared well for easier magazine insertion.

The stocks weigh approximately 2.5 pounds and give the shooter both length of pull and cheek height adjustments. The butt end of the stock has a rubber cushion. On the underside of the forend, Archangel Manufacturing built in a Picatinny type rail. The company includes a soft cover for the rail.

The stock has a goose neck style pistol grip, and the grip has a storage compartment inside of it. There are four steel inserts that serve as quick attachment points for a sling.

A suggested retail price has not yet been announced, but I would expect it to be the same or fairly close to the price of the existing black stock: $132.99.

    Seeing that tiny magazine come out of that stock is hysterical.

      Could look better with a ten round mag. Think I’d go with FDE or OD, but I’m traditional like that.

    • Phillip Cooper

      Bet you wouldn’t stand in front of someone with it, though.

        …Obviously not? I wasn’t knocking the .22lr at all, it’s just that you usually see these kinds of stocks on larger rifle calibers (or the occasional .223) so the size of the .22lr magazine just looks funny coming out of it.

    Few rifles have spawned such a massive industry around them as the humble 10/22. You might count the AR-15, but those are made by many, the 10 may be the most supported design produced by a single manufacturer.

      Might not be that way for much longer. Several companies have been producing barrels for a while, recently I’ve seen an expansion in the number of aftermarket receivers as well. Possibly a result of the large number of companies getting into the AR business, then realizing they need to expand their product line due to all the other competition in that arena.

        Nothing against Ruger but the idea of building my own 10/22 without a single Ruger part would be a fun project.

      I remember thinking they were the bees-knees as a wee-one in the 90’s. Thinking “yeah, get a bull barrel, banana mags, some heavy, colorful, spectacularly perforated laminate stock. Be like ‘brrrappp'”. *eye twinkle*

    • TheMaskedMan

      Yep, every collection should include a 10/22.
