Krieger will cut and hand fit a barrel for almost anything.

Cabellas has these barrels for sale. From what I've read they are good quality barrels.

Here's some more from Sportsman's Guide.

Barrels are more than what I paid for the whole gun LOL. This project is going to get expensive fast!

There are TONS of after market barrels that range from $89 GM 96/22 barrels (they will fit a 10/22) to +$300 Volquartsen barrels. And I second the what are you building question. If you have not checked it out, Rimfirecentral.com has so much info on 10/22 mods your head will spin. Good luck.

Default Three Likely Choices

I'm also looking for a replacement barrel for my 10/22. Now that I've put a good quality peep sight on it, I've found that it's not all that accurate. Putting two different scopes on it and shooting from a bench rest confirmed that it's a 5-6 minute of angle gun. With either of the two factory Ruger barrels I have, I can hit a coffee can at 100 yards, but I want to be able to hit a golf ball at that distance.

I would like one that's match -quality but with standard factory sporter weight and dimensions, so that I can use my existing stocks (I have 4 of them) without modification, and without having to buy new ones.

But very few companies make such a barrel. Some companies have introduced them and later dropped them from their product lines. So I may have to get a .920 bull barrel.

KID / KIDD makes 20" long match barrels that cost $175.

Green Mountain has serveral barrels, most of which are backordered and everybody is sold out of them, but they do have a few models in stock, including something they call the Running Boar, which is a fairly skinny barrel that suddenly swells up to .920 for the last four inches before the muzzle. This barrel costs $170. It's 22" long, which I like, as I will be putting a front sight on it to use with my biathalon-style peep / rear aperture sight (from Archer Airguns). A long 22" barrel will give me better sight radius.

Clark Custom Guns has a medium-weight (.720 diameter) barrel for $200, and their standard .920 barrel is only $175. These barrels are also pretty long, at 21.5".

Michaels of Oregon has a .920 bull barrel for $175. I have not heard anything about it though, good or bad. So I probably would not take a chance on it.

E.R. Shaw barrels are selling for only $80-$90 from several suppliers. Some people say they're as good as any other barrel out there, and other people say that they're not much better than a factory Ruger sporter barrel. If I wanted a .920 barrel with a tight "Bentz" match chamber, I think I'd take a chance and go with the Shaw.

Green Mountain used to sell a factory-tapered .650 barrel, but four inches longer (22" barrel length), with a match-type muzzle crown, and their standard medium-tight chamber (not as tight as a Bentz, but tighter than factory Ruger chambers). There's still a few out there for sale from distributors, even though the factory discontinued them. They're $80.
I am seriously thinking about getting one, but I'm worried about how I might be able to put a front sight on it-- the sight would have to be really tall, with the center of the aperture or the tip of the front sight post about 1.25 inches above the center of the bore.

Default Range Report

I just received my Green Mountain 22-inch sporter, tapered, stainless barrel. It shoots much better than my old factory Ruger barrel. At 100 yards my group size shrank from 4" to 1", and at 25 yards my old 1-inch groups are now little clover-leaf clusters where all the holes overlap.

Although they call this a sporter barrel, they mean the contour or outside dimensions. Internally, it's a match barrel with a tight chamber and target crown at the muzzle.

And it only cost $85.
