Take a look at Kidd. They are a small company, make great stuff, and their customer service is fantastic.

Kidd, Green Mountain, Shilen, Lilja, Hart, Whistle Pig, and Voquartson all make great barrels. I'd recommend you steer clear of Butler Creek, Clerke, and other cheaper brands.

Quoted for truth...I've seen a few Butler Creek bbls that just didn't live up to expectations. Green Mountain I see as one of the best buys for the buck. They are not all that expensive and work very well.

If you plan on packing your 10/22 for hunting i would recomend you look at Volquartsen Carbon Barrels. I built a all steel bull barrel 10/22 and it was heavy and not balanced well to me, front heavy. I like shooting off hand so just a sugestion. Very accurate.

The Volquartsen is the one on top
Magnium research on the bottom

Default 10/22

Thanks guys ...all are around the same price /quality. Was thinking of going threaded for future class 3 can . the tax plus the hassle may not be worth it ,unless i have my mk2 target threaded also.
