Ruger 10/22 Bull Barrel Review. This bull barrel can be used to fire magnum ammunition as well. I haven't seen many positive reviews on er shaw barrels either.
Made with either 416 stainless steel or 4140 chrome moly, these are plenty. Using the ruger bx trigger and bull barrel, the boyds 10/22 bull barrel stock, tactic. Its extremely light weight and accurate (cover bullet holes with a quarter at 50 yards).
Even volquartsen has been making carbon fiber barrels for 10/22 but they cost almost as much as a brand new 10/22.
Each barrel offers some different benefits than the others. They're about the only ones making an aftermarket sporter barrel. I think he only ruger parts left on the rifle is the name. It's safe to say pure aesthetics drive many 10/22 projects.
