It's all about being cost effective at the factory. They could have put a decent looking high end carbon stock on it, weather proof. But you guys wouldn't want to pay $400 more for the same gun.

I own the Ruger 77/22 SS/Com., and the All Weathers in .223 and .22-250. Between the three of them, they have been under water numerous times, knocked into the bottom of boats/ canoes full of beaver urine and mud, pulled overboard by willow branches, laid in slush, completely covered in snow more than numerous times, bounced down the half frozen banks of a river right along side of me, and the 77/22 was launched out of the canoe once when a beaver I threw in the canoe bounced off another beaver and hit the barrel. Try that with a blued, wood stocked rifle! Yep, butt ugly in a beautiful kind of way.

Anyone have any experience with carbon fiber barrels? I bought a Christiansen Ridgeline a couple years back, 280 Nosler, but haven't shot it much yet.

Had a full collection of those all weather Ruger rifles a few years back. Decided it was time to think the hard while the prices were still good. Theyíve dropped off a bit from what they were so I got out while the getting was good. Loved those guns though. And like several others, Iíll take synthetic over wood when it comes to a gun thatís going to see heavy use. Itís lighter and more durable. That matters when covering rough terrain and lots of it. Not that I walk as much as I did in my younger days but I still prefer a light rifle for covering ground.

As for the question about the carbon barrel, not real sure whatcha want to know. Theyíre good for getting rid of heat and much lighter. Aside from that, not sure what to tell ya right now.


I keep desperately hoping that one day someone will call me "Sir" without adding "please calm down" or "you're causing a scene."

Guess itís all in perception to some extent. They were lighter than the wooden guns I used to carry. Moot point now though. Theyíre gone and Iíve moved on to Kevlar stocks and carbon barrels.

Geez, I treat my Hi Lift jack better than you treat your rifles! 😁


I have nothing clever to put here.

my rifle weighs almost 9 pounds with the sling and scope. no clue how you can describe that as light.
