Uhmm allegedly this is the upgraded factory furniture I believe and I was wondering about the barrel band myself. But I google 10/22 bull barrel pictures and saw several with no strap sooo ?????

I did find this thread http://www.perfectunion.com/vb/ruger-10-22/69194-10-22-barrel-band-920-bull-barrel.html

And allegedly the strap adversely affects accuracy and serves no real function. Anyone confirm this?

A barrel longer than 18" on a 22 will reduce velocity.

The barrel band is not necessary. What you do have to watch out for is barrel sag when you hang a heavy barrel on an aluminum action.

Isnt the receiver on a 10/22 steel?

Wow it is not aluminum alloy. Allegedly this barrel has had a couple thousand through it so I think trouble woulda arose by now But I looked into a steel receiver and a voltzquartzen steel receiver is 369.00 :/ Would it be worth it ?
