    Anybody ever change out a regular barrel for the ruger 10/22 with a bull barrel? Was it something you would need gunsmithing tools to do-like a centerfire-or is it relatively easy to do like using a t/c encore? I am thinking about getting my first 10/22 but don't like using thin barrels on my guns.

    All you need is an allen wrench, 3 minutes, and a stock designed for heavy barrel. That is to allow clearance but you CAN redo factory wooden stocks by hogging the barrel channel out. The best of cheap stocks are the Hogue rubber overmolded.

    Best bet would be to buy a cheaper more accurate rifle to begin with.


    Just exactly what stalking bear said.
