I could not resist picking up this little clip fed .22 rifle the other day. The price was right and it shoots fantastic. After shooting it for a while I have decided that I want to change the stock. It has a synthetic stock that I am not fond of, and I would like to find a folding stock. I am looking at the multitude of stocks available for the Ruger 10/22 and have yet to find anyone who makes anything for the Savage. I don't suppose anyone knows if a Ruger 10/22 stock would fit the Savage model 62... Also, the only mags I can locate have a 10 round capacity. Is there someone that makes a larger capacity magazine for this fun little rifle?
Probably the number one reason that the Ruger 10/22 is so popular is because of the endless supply of aftermarket goodies out there which allows one to customize their rifle any conceiveble way they want. You don't have that option with 99% of the other .22's out there, including your 62. While anything theoretically is possible with enough work, the simple answer is no your 62 won't fit in the Ruger stock. I think you'll find the 10rd. mags are your only option for your rifle as well.
Dan , I would agree with jbw1776 on this one. There is basically no aftermarket support of your Savage model 62 so you more than likely will not be able to find another stock or a larger capacity magazine. Youcan do an extensive online search to see if anything pops up, but I spent 10 min looking and could not find anything. The good news is that you have a fantistic rifle for a great price, the bad news is that it will always be what it is.
There is no problem in life, no matter how large, that cannot be solved with the proper use of high explosives
