  1. Perfect Hunting Barrel 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Sep 2017

    I had purchased a 20 by .920 stainless barrel earlier for wife's 10-22. I used hunting squirrels but was to heavy, accuracy was great. New 17" heavy sporter I just purchased is a great choice. Easy to manuver in tight under brush and accuracy has been great. First hunt 5 squirrels 5 head shots. Of course the Kidd trigger I had already installed makes it a deadly combination. Thanks GM for excellent product and window emblem. UPS will now deliver to right address.

  2. hard choice 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Dec 2016

    I bought a 16.5x.920 fluted barrel and a heavy taper sporter. Which do I like best.. THE one I am shooting at the time. Put this barrel in a high grade Ruger stock. Looks killer and is an ublelvieabely accurate gun. If you shoot only bench maybe the .920 but if you carry this and hunt with it the heavy sporter is the way to go. Poor squerels. (Yeah I can't spell)

  3. Perfect carbine barrel 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Dec 2015

    Installed in my carbine with kidd trigger and bolt. Opened the barrel channel to free float with pressure pad about midway on barrel. Still breaking it in and have managed .25 inch groups at 50 yards and .68 inch groups at 100 yards measured center to center.Using SK standard plus and perfect shooting conditions.

  4. Excellant barrel 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Aug 2015

    Bought this barrel to replace the short factory taper barrel with glow sights. This thing shoots great. Out of the box I was getting 1/2" consistent groups @50 yards. Best upgrade to my 10/22. Would recommend this barrel to anyone. Looks good too. Tired of bull barrels and the weight. This heavy taper is accurate and lighter. 1st quality.

  5. Excellent Bang For The Buck 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Sep 2014

    I have used seven Green Mountain 10/22 barrels on past projects. I have found them to have the biggest increase in accuracy for dollars spent on upgrades to Ruger factory equipment.

    I particularly like the 17" Heavy Taper Sporter as it offers stability for bench shooting and is still light enough for decent handling in the field. I have not found any decrease in accuracy in shorter barrels versus their longer versions.
