Pat Hogue recently said his company’s full-length bed block stock “is quite simply the best option available to replace your factory [bolt action rifle] stock.” And he may be right.

Hogue’s secret to success lies around the molded-in precision CNC machined 7075-T6 aircraft aluminum block that completely surrounds the action and extends into the forend. The full-length block absolutely guarantees the ultimate in accuracy potential by providing rock-solid stability over the full length of the stock.
“The full-length aluminum bed block which free floats the barrel yet creates a rigid barrel end results in a consistent point of impact that is unmatched,” Hogue said.
Hogue’s molding has created a process that causes the aluminum bedding to interlock with the polymer frame resulting in a mechanical bond instead of the traditional adhesive bond found on other stocks, which begins to fracture over prolonged use. This stock is built so solid that when independently tested, it was the only stock that retained zero movement after a 30 foot drop test.
Even with the solid build, Hogue’s full-length bed block stock weighs in lighter than competitor stocks.
Along with enhanced accuracy potential, the bed block stock contains all the usual popular Hogue features. It is OverMolded with a durable, soft synthetic rubber with Hogue’s unique Cobblestone texture; it is equipped with two QD sling studs; and it sports the Hogue recoil pad, which provides outstanding recoil control and shooting comfort.
Hogue offers models available for Mauser, Winchester, Remington, Savage, Ruger, Howa and Weatherby rifles and in Black, OD Green, Ghillie Green or Ghillie Earth colored options. MSRP for the full-length bed block stocks in black is $259.95 while colors are priced at $269.95 MSRP.
