Here is my Ruger Hawkeye in it's new stock, a Hogue over molded with a full aluminum bedding block. It fit perfect, and after putting it in the stock I checked it and it is free floated all the way to the receiver. It is lighter than my wooden stock was an actually throws up and meets my should better. It really handles well and I love the feel of the pistol grip. Nice indeed.
I was very impressed with the fit and finish, in fact, I was shocked at how well it was put together and there were no un-smooth places or ragged spots on the in side and the aluminum block was also finished very nicely. As some of you know I ruined my wooden stock but before I ruined it I could only get the rifle to shoot if I free floated the barrel. When I did this I had 1/4" groups with some loads. This will be my main 30-06 in my load work.
