ProMag Archangel Ruger 10/22 Conversion Stock Review

Ruger 10/22 Carbine models get an update in “cool points” with a ProMag Archangel Conversion Stock. This stock is ideal for customizing and improving Ruger 10/22 Carbine models. Specifically designed for the Ruger 10/22 Carbine, this stock supports various optics, bayonet models, and other tactical add-ons. The model boasts a six-position butt-stock (Archangel Compact Stock), designed to be useful in a number of diverse situations. The Archangel Conversion Stock is a great way to transform an outdated or antique Carbine into a tactical beast that maintains the integrity of an original Ruger 10/22.

MiLitary grade polymers compose the body of the Pro-Mag Archangel Stock, creating serious updated rifles out of outdated Ruger 10/22 Carbine models. The platform of the add-on is sturdy, and owners have claimed that the stock is solid and made from high quality material. Carbon polymer is a military grade polymer and this specific grade of polymer used in the making of the Archangel Conversion Stock is some of the best, but you pay for it in the price.

What are Defining Features of this Stock?

Upper-level receiver housing, fit with a solid Picatinny/Weaver rail, enforced with an aluminum coating, makes the ProMag Archangel Conversion Stock ideal for customization. The addition of lasers, dynamic sights and other optics is simple. Typically, advanced rifle owners find that this addition provides so much space that they do not have enough accessories to occupy every rail, much like an AR-15 with a free floating tactical rail.  The bayonet included with this package is also of high quality polymer material, and is a great way to customize a rifle with an intimidating, formidable tactical style.  Your lower-level receiver housing is fitted with a state-of-the-art pistol grip. Should you want more rails installed, this stock makes it easy.

The grip of the Archangel Conversion Stock is also quality. The pistol- grip’s slanted design creates not only a tactical “feel” and appearance to surround the rifle, but its central placement ensures stability throughout and can provide security to the shooter.  The stock’s size and weight, though larger than some, allows the addition to facilitate a full-bull-barrel, and increases security and safety when firing.  This 3.5 pound addition measures roughly 30 in. by 8 in. by 3 in. Though larger than some stock systems, this system can owe its robust security to its substantial size and make. Barrel length is 18.5 in.

What about the Install?

Instructions are included in shipped packages and are meant to help with installation of the Archangel Conversion Stock.  Installation of this stock is slightly more complicated than the Butler Creek or Tapco, but still pretty easy.  Map out 30 minutes for the install.  The Archangel Conversion Stock should require little to no modification to either the rifle or the stock itself during installation.  Tools should be included in the package to help facilitate an easy install.  An extended magazine release lever is included in most packages online as well.  A specialty bolt release, also included, quickens installation and de-installation effort.

How will the Archangel Conversion Stock System Improve my Ruger 10/22 Rifle?

The Archangel Conversion Stock System secures the Ruger 10/22 Carbine model, decreasing shock and “wiggle room” within the rifle. Recoil pads in the stock system improve the shock resistance.  The sight on the additional stock system, though keeping a consistent and accurate sight provides flexibility to elevate and wind sight to a shooter’s preference.   Sling mounts on this stock system have been claimed to improve sling position, providing more convenient holding and carrying than even an original 10/22 Carbine can provide. The stock possesses four swivel hard points that are of quick-detaching, suited for ease of use and transport.

 What About Looks? 

Plain and simple, this stock looks great.  Your old Ruger 10/22 carbine will come out looking like an AR-15. The design was originally aimed to give an appearance similar to that of an M-4 Carbine.   The Archangel Conversion Stock for Ruger 10/22 Carbine is among the best .22 caliber rifle conversion stocks on the market. It maintains the integrity of the original Carbine model while improving the use and look of an original weapon, helping users to transform an old Ruger 10/22 into a modern, tactical weapon, fit with accessories, modern grip, and increased storage.
