My 10/22 deluxe sporter needed a new barrel, I bought it when I was 12 and after 35 yrs of use and abuse it was toast, it would only shoot a 5" group at 50yd. After some research and knowing I wanted to keep the rifle light and short and also wanted to keep my nice walnut stock I ordered up one of these awesome barrels! It took some fitting with an adhesive sanding disc wrapped around the old barrel to open up the barrel channel. At first I tried it with keeping the stock pressure point in the barrel channel at the fore end and was getting 1" to 1 1/2" groups at 50 yd after breaking in. (10 rounds, clean, repeat for first 100 shots) Then, I went ahead and free floated the barrel installed an adjustable v block to keep the barrel from "drooping" and I also added a small pressure pad made from a inner tube about 1" long 2 layers thick, laid it in the rear of the barrell channel in front of the v block. I did not bed the action just put 2 layers of black vinyl tape wrapped around rear of action to tighten things up a little and now it is a shooter! Now off of the pickup hood with a rolled up towell it will put 20 rounds shot in about 30 seconds at 50 yd in one big hole you can cover with a quarter!! I call that a real world minute of squirrel test.
Thanks Green Mountain for an awesome product!

Needed a accurate barrel to install on a Ruger SR22.
Broke in barrel in groups of 5 shots and clean, after 25 shots shot off rest at 50 yards, using center-X, last 5 shot group all together in a small connected cluster.

I have a modest collection of 10/22's
So far I have purchased 9 Green Mountain barrels.
They all take the accuracy of the 10/22 to something I consider to be very good.
Most of my 10/22's will shoot 1/2-5/8" groups at 50 yards.
A huge improvement over the factory barrel.
This barrel was purchased for a 10/22 build that I am doing for my wife, I am sure she will be thrilled with how it shoots.

This barrel shoots as good as it looks! My groups tightened up considerably simply by switching to the GM barrel. Installation was an absolute breeze. I did have to open the barrel channel up slightly but it was a quick task that didn't involve significant removal of material.
Couldn't be happier with this barrel! I can't wait to get it in the woods chasing squirrel!
