Our aftermarket replacement for the Ruger 10-22 bull barrel is the ultimate performer in accuracy.  Our stainless steel 10-22 barrel is guaranteed to group 1/2" at 50 yards.  This bull barrel will slip into your Ruger 10-22 receiver or other aftermarket 10-22 receiver.  It comes in three lengths 20", 18", 16.5" and the stainless steel finish is offered in a polished or bead blast.
We believe these are the finest barrels on the market, each one is hand lapped. Our stainless steel barrel is bored and rifled by Lothar Walther in Germany. Tony Kidd then performs all the final machining to make our match barrel a worthy KIDD product. A proprietary chamber reamer is used to ensure the cartridge and bullet feed smoothly.  Our barrels are chambered to accept .22 LR ammo and have a 1:16 twist.  Our muzzle threading is 1/2"-28 and is available with a protective cap or muzzle brake. 

The unique convex extractor slot eliminates extraction problems by ensuring the extractor is always in perfect alignment with the case rim. Why doesn't everybody use this extractor slot? Because the tooling is very expensive and requires tolerances be held very close for proper machining. Each barrel receives an 11 degree crown and the double ring logo at the muzzle.  Our 20" bull barrel weighs 3.5 lbs, 18" weighs 3.3 lbs, and our 16.5" weighs 3.1lbs.
We can offer such a great price on this barrel because we don't sell to distributors, only retail and dealer pricing are offered, therefore we don't have to increase our price to compensate for 3 tier pricing. There are cheaper barrels out there but as with all KIDD products, "you get what you pay for." 

To avoid "barrel droop," check your clamp to make sure you only have moderate tension on the screws. We tighten them to around 10 inch pounds which is just snug enough to keep the barrel from moving forward. No more than this, as even the slightest tension moves the barrel and receiver out of alignment.

Barrel installation: 

Depending on your receiver, if there is paint build up in the receiver where the barrel extension is inserted, be sure to scrape that out. If the barrel is tight, use an anti-seize compound to assist in installation. It is best if you can get the barrel started, then turn it over and tap the back of the receiver with a rubber mallet. Be sure to line the extractor slot up as you are installing the barrel. Your barrel is ready to shoot, just run two magazines through it before you really start looking at group size. Do this each time you change brands of ammunition as well. Keep the chamber clean, but don't clean the bore too much you will decrease accuracy. Depending on the ammo, clean the bore around every 500 rounds.

Rating Minute of squirrel eye
Bought a 16.5" barrel to get the best accuracy possible out of my custom 10/22, the only thing left of the original gun is the receiver and bolt. My hunting partner wants me to order a barrel for him because mine is "minute of squirrel eye" at any distant up to 100 yards. A lot of shots are at 45-65 yards with a target area the size of a quarter at best. This was one of the wisest purchases that I have made.

Just got back from the range to shoot my custom 10/22. I had a Kidd Match Bull Barrel and Bolt.....no misfires and the shot groups were great. Zeroed out to 100 yards and AWESOME.

Rating Superb Barrel
WOW...can't wait to see what this does after it's broken in. After sighting in the gun with 40 rounds I put up a new target and placed 20 rounds of CCI Mini Mags into a dime sized hole at 50 yards! Barrel was a real tight fit going into the receiver even after freezing for a couple hours and applying some anti-seize. After many strikes with a rubber mallet to the receiver it finally seated perfectly.

Bought this barrel and it's worth every penny! I get .3 to .5 groups. Install note: my barrel was going to be a tight fit but a simple step can make things much easier.. I placed the receiver outside in the sun to warm it up and placed the barrel in the freezer for about an hour.... then the Barrel installed with ease. Purchase and enjoy!

Rating Kidd 20" Match Bull Barrel
Incredible accuracy! Will shoot dime sized groups at 50 yards with Wolf Match Target ammo. I like to shoot pennies for fun. Very high quality and easy installation.

Rating 20 inch match
This by far is the most accurate barrel I've ever used on a 10/22. Ammuntion: Wolf Target Match to get 3/8" groups at 50yds and under 3/4 @ 100. Often in will print .5 moa in the indoor range at 100. Set up is a Kidd barrel 1978 Ruger receiver with my own triger work, Nikon Monarch 5x20x44 optic and a Bell & Carlson Anschutz style stock. Uses: NRA 4 position match.

Rating Wow - very happy!!!
Just came back from the range after installing the Match Bull Barrel. Zeroed in the scope (3-7X33mm)at 50 yards then fired 5 rounds at a 1 1/2" bulls-eye target. 5 rounds at 5 targets. I threw out the furtherest round as a flyer (i.e. bad shooter) then measured. All five groups of four, were less than 1/2". Including all five rounds the groups measured 1/2", 15/16", 7/16" 3/4" and 9/16". I'm not a gunsmith but was able to sand down the origional stock using a wooden dowel so the bull barrel fits well. Needless to say I'm very impressed and happy. This is what I was looking for. Ammo used was Wolf Target Match. I believe I will be able to improve some with more experience with this barrel.
