I want to install an inexpensive heavy barrel/stock combo onto my 10/22. From my research, the combos seem to range in price from about $110 to Way-too-much-for-a-freaking-.22.

Any particular brands to stay away from?

Thanks in advance,
Eric

I have a stainless barrel from J&G sales from arizona which only cost $89.00 plus shipping that after proper barrel break-in shoots a box off T-22 into a dime sized hole at 50 meters. you then clean it and it will do it again after coolig. This barrel is mark U.S. ORD. It was made for US ARMY rifle team. You can't beat price or quality. Your question should be whats the best buy for a quality barrel instead of what to stay away from.

i have experienced shoddy craftsmanship from the buter creek "carbon fiber" barrels. which BTWare injection molded plastic not carbon fiber. for $89 its hard to beat an adams & bennet/green mountain.

check out rimfire central

J&G Sales has one of the better deals out there. ~120 for a Hogue overmold and Clerke barrel. You can get the 18" or 20" barrel.

Oh yeah. Stay away from butler creek.

Green Mountain seems to be the preferred brand of the 10/22 hotrodders at rimfirecentral. If I ever decide to build a heavybarrel, that's what I'm using.

Ditto. A&B barrels from MidwayUSA are actually Green Mountain barrels. Mine's pretty good.

+1..I have had good luck with my A&B barrel. Combined with Volquartsen trigger guard, makes a decent shooter.
