For a second there, I thought you ran over your Ruger in a Honda!

I got one ordered today.
Anyone on here replaced a barrel? I've never done it before. Much at all to it or is it pretty straight forward?

All you do is take it out of the stock and there's a V clamp with 2 allenhead screws in it. Remove the 2 screws and the clamp. The barrel will pull right out. You MAY have to sand the shank of the new barrel if it fits too tightly. I assume you bought a bull barrel? If so then you'll either have to inlet the existing stock for the bigger barrel or buy another stock.

Thank you sir. Sounds easy enough. And yeah. I got the weighted bull. It should fit into the new stock. Hope so anyway.

Pretty straight forward. Just don't over tighten the v-block and be sure to index your ejector slot.

Thank you.
That was pretty easy too. Took about 2 minutes total. are there any torch specs for the bolts? I have a bad habit of over tightening ****. Seriously. I've broken a lot of **** by over tightening nuts and bolts.

I got it today.
I ordered the 19.5 inch barrel but they sent the 16.5 inch barrel but they only charged me for the 16.5 so I'm cool with it. I'll build up another one for son later this winter and maybe give him the shorter one.
There's a little sanding to do at the bottom of the stock and I'll shoot it a few times and send the trigger grouping off to Stalkingbear
