What kind of barrel is that?

It's an 18 inch bull barrel from shooters ridge, cheapest bull barrel I could find.

I plan on getting a compact 3-9x scope and go with an aluminum bull barrel from tactical solutions and lose the bipod all together.

With all due respect, the following video is an AR that is "over done".

Does all that crap on those guns make them shoot farther? Faster?

Only accessories a 22 needs is a scope , suppressor and ammo.

That is why I stripped my 10-22 back down to the basic rifle except for the trigger and a light weight stock. I have a TRS25 on it. All my AR has on it is a scope and it weighs 8 lbs.
