    Kidd, Green Mountain, Shilen, Lilja, Hart, Whistle Pig, and Voquartson all make great barrels. I'd recommend you steer clear of Butler Creek, Clerke, and other cheaper brands.

    Quoted for truth...I've seen a few Butler Creek bbls that just didn't live up to expectations. Green Mountain I see as one of the best buys for the buck. They are not all that expensive and work very well.

    If you plan on packing your 10/22 for hunting i would recomend you look at Volquartsen Carbon Barrels. I built a all steel bull barrel 10/22 and it was heavy and not balanced well to me, front heavy. I like shooting off hand so just a sugestion. Very accurate.

    The Volquartsen is the one on top
    Magnium research on the bottom

    Thanks guys ...all are around the same price /quality. Was thinking of going threaded for future class 3 can . the tax plus the hassle may not be worth it ,unless i have my mk2 target threaded also.
