Re: Ruger 10/22 green mountain barrel

I had a GM barrel in 22 mag for my Ruger 77/17 and it was the most accurate rimfire I've ever shot. It would easily keep 10 shots in under 3/4 of and inch with most groups around the 1/2 mark and one 8 shot group that was 1/4 inch till I ruined it with two more shots that opened the group up to just over a half inch. All those were shot at 100 yards. When I get the time to trick out my wife's 10/22 it'll be getting a GM barrel.

Re: Ruger 10/22 green mountain barrel

I have or have had

1 Magnum reasearch (superb but spendy)
1 Butler Creek (piece of junk)
1 E.R. Shaw ( shot just fine)
1 Volquartsen (had features gm didn't offer)

But I currently have 9 green mountain barrels, in each rimfire caliber ranging from 16.5 inch 17 hm2, to 20 inch 22mag. I love them, have installed probably anohter 15 for relatives and friends. Have not had a single bad one.

I highly reccomend Green mountian.

Re: Ruger 10/22 green mountain barrel

thats good to hear i was a little conserned to buy a barrel i didnt know anything about. I would like to get the 20inch sporter barrel that tapers and its fluted. Its .920 at the base and im not sure what it gets down to but it looks like a good one. Are barrels hard to install on a ruger 10/22?

Re: Ruger 10/22 green mountain barrel

Switching them out is pretty easy, just pull the stock and their are 2 bolts holding the barrel on. Sometimes the tennon is a little sticky but a littel emery cloth or sticking the barrel in the freezer usually works.

I don't think that the barrel will dissapoint, especially if you are switching from a factory sporter barrel.
