Default need help on softening up stock

hello all, quick ?

i just bought a ruger 10/22 carbine. I replaced the wood stock with a dragunov fiberforce stock. I love it, but it think that when i do get to shoot it, the hard plastic stock on the new stock will be hard on my arm. are there any suggestions to help me soften up the stock butt. i need something that is, obviously, soft, durable and will stand up to the weather (rain, snow, heat, etc). any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I just need a simple addition or modification to fix this problem, but the stock is just to hard on the arm (or im sure it will be). i will post a pic of it 2marrow when my dad takes one with the digital camera

thanks
geter

sniper...what does that have to do with a hard stock butt? i didnt say i cant lift the gun, i said that the continious recoil of the hard fiberforce plastic on the same spot on my arm will begin to irritate me, or i would think it wold. my other nguns do not have this hard of stock

Recoil??????? From a .22????? Doesn't appear to be much of a problem to me. Am I missing something?

Don't be sorry, just wasn't sure of the problem. Recoil out of a 22 rifle is virtually non-existant. Good luck.

lol, geterdun.

That's ok man if you didn't know.

there is NO recoil from a .22 You could hold the butt of the stock against your nose and pull the trigger and you'd never feel a thing.

That is too funny.

this might be kinda daring to say, but you could hold it up to your boys and it wouldnt do anything.

I have a Marlin 60 with the same stock , recoil isn't a problem . If it isn't the same for you try wrapping a few pairs of your panties around the butt to soften it ...
