Green Mountain makes a good barrel,they offer blued steel & stainless. If you want a lighter barrel,Tactical Solutions are good but kinda pricey. you can also find the factory takeoff target barrels for good prices if you look on Rimfire Central or Gunbroker.
I would stay away from butler creek as a lot of them have loose chambers. For less than 200$ the Volquartson barrels are good and I'd check out Shilen or Green Mountain as well. Shilen is what I have on my own 10/22.
You can get a new stock or I believe a member named RugerMike has a checkered walnut deluxe sporter stock ready for a bull barrel for a very reasonable price. How is the trigger on that Ruger 10/22? Is the trigger too heavy, thus holding you back from good accuracy?
Sometimes you earthlings REALLY amaze me!
it could use a trigger job for sure. i,am going to used the bull barrel with my butler creek folding stock if i can clearence it for the .920 bull barrel.
thanks for you help fellas its greatly appreciated.
