    Please tell me about these barrels.

    I understand they are somewhat limited or rare?

    Are they worth any more than a standard barrel?

    Are they something to hold onto?

    What's the scoop?

    Thanks!

    I assume you are talking about a Ruger-factory-manufactured barrel?

    Sounds like the barrel from the 10/22 that Walmart sold as an exclusive for a while. Deluxe checkered wood stock and a 22" stainless barrel. I've never seen the barrels offered/sold separately, but I imagine one pops up on an auction site every now and then.

    I had one of the guns a couple of years after they first started selling them. I wasn't all that impressed with the accuracy of mine, and I sold it within a year. It does make the 10/22 more of a rifle than a carbine, and it changes the balance a bit, but other than that, not much difference.
