Hands On with Fab Defense 10/22 Stock: Rimfire SBR

This summer I realized there wasn’t a single rimfire firearm in my safe, and set out to fix that. The end result was an 11 inch SBR settled nicely into a Fab Defense 10/22 chassis. Take a look:

One of the things I really like about this stock is that it’s not trying to convince me I’m shooting an AR. I’ve looked at several tactical .22s and stock systems that are actively mimicking the aesthetics of some recognizable military rifle, but they just don’t quite get there. They just don’t quite capture the quality and feel of the original rifles.

Although as a side note: I have to confess I want a Blaze 47 just because the RCMP thinks its some kind of Kalashnikov. Isn’t Canada fun?

But with the Fab Defense 10/22 setup, it’s just trying to be a comfortable stock with a decent grip and some picatinny rail space.

I’ve had several people ask about a version of this stock that would fit a take down model 10/22. While Fab Defense hasn’t released any statement about that yet, Shot Show is right around the corner, and it seems like a natural direction for them to go.

If we’re actually breaking down the full line, there are currently eight stocks in total based on the following choices:

  • Do you want the UAS stock with a cheek riser, or an AR-15 tube with a GL shock stock?
  • Do you want just the stock, or the optics mount included?
  • Do you want the folding mechanism, or a fixed stock?

Depending on how you answer those questions, the stock runs anywhere from $125 to $199 USD.

Fab Defense is distributed by Mako Group in the USA, Wolverine Supplies in Canada, and sold online by Zahal, which is where this sample came from.

    Every day I curse out SBR laws a little more, I realize that over all we have it a little better here than in Canada, but still, if this Hearing Protection Act gets through, barrel length needs to be next.

    Thus continues the "AR-ifcation " of every thing.
