Default Skimpy Ruger American stock now "fixed" with Tourbon stock cover

Got a Ruger American 5.56 NATO bolt action rifle that accepts standard AR magazines. Great gun at a great price. 16.125" barrel is 1:8 twist and quite accurate with 69 gr. Sierra BTHP bullets. But the stock was too short and the comb too low.

Ordered a Tourbon stock cover made for .22 rifles. It added about an inch to the length of pull and about 3/4" to the comb. Now when I mount the rifle to my shoulder with eyes closed the scope is positioned perfectly.

At $49 dollars the Tourbon is a bit pricey for the only fair quality of the materials -- but it does what I needed it to do. Also, left hand shooters like me will be glad to know that the .22 cartridge holder sewn into the right side of the cover does not interfere with the face when shooting from the left side.

I am hoping that the now correct fit will let me reduce the 100 yard groups from 1" to 0.75" or better.

I want to get a soft leather lace to replace the very unsatisfying lace that came with the Tourbon
