    I'm fairly new to this but I have a tiger 10/22 with the standard barrel iv been shooting for a while. Now I wanna modify it a .920 bull barrel. If I have a stock that fits the new barrel and a bull barrel. If drop the action and internal workings of my standard rifle into the new stock, will the larger barrel be compatible or do I need to buy the action and parts that come in the ruger bull barrel model?

    It is a plug in. The bull barrel will fit the standard 10-22 action. You should torque the V block screws at 18-24 inch pounds. The torque will affect the accuracy and every one is different. You will need to find the sweet spot that shoots the best. The tighter chamber on the bull barrel may cause some reliability issues with cheap ammo. The better ammo should function well.
