I have two questions.

What are you guys torquing the action screws to for the boyds stock? Torquing it to ruger spec smashed the tab and dented the soft laminate making the magazine even worse

And, what did you do to make the stock fit? Im having an issue with the magazine not properly engaging the magazine retaining tab. It appears to be too short so the magazine doesnt snap in but just hangs up. Im thinking of bedding the magazine tab area to increase its height so the magazine can actually fit.

It sucks that there is literally no aftermarket support or following for ruger american rifles. And even less for those who have done modifications other than some generic post about doing one.

With the amount of them out there you'd think there would be more support by now. It's been a big seller for Ruger

Exactly. What ive found so far is pretty much the same stuff thats been on the market a year or longer. Still no extended mags.

Nightforce base
Egw base
Warne base

Glades armory bolt handles

Boyds stock
Mdt chassis (pending current status is 6 months according to mdt rep)

Dropped it back into the factory stock. Ordered a glades armory bolt handle and an egw 20moa base. Tossed the boyds stock in the trash after i cut it into pieces.
