  • 10-22 barrel
  • starts at .920" tapers to 0.700" at muzzle
  • 20" length
  • requires 10-22 bull barrel stock channel 

Introducing our 20 inch 10-22 stainless steel straight taper barrel, that slips into your 10-22 receiver with a bull barrel stock.  Our straight tapered barrel is not as small at the muzzle as the Ruger, because we found that amount of taper to negatively affect our accuracy. With a .700 muzzle we can still guarantee a 1/2" group at 50 yds. This barrel weighs in at 2 3/4th pounds and has a balance point for the rifle very close to the shooter's body.

We believe these are the finest barrels on the market. 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 ammo and have a 1:16 twist.  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. We can offer such a great price on this barrel because we don't sell to distributors, only retail and dealer pricing is 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 200 yard bench match
I purchased the straight tapper for 200 yard bench matches. I use CCI standard, T36 scope, and have a 2 lbs trigger. Consistently score 189 12X or better. I am Always in top 5 only beat by bolt guns with Lilja barrels and Eley or lapua match ammo. I have 6 10/22 for different matches and hunting. The Kidd is bar far the most accurate and consistent.

My rifle has KID bolt, 2 stage trigger, receiver pins and recoil spring. I had a 20" .920 barrel in the rifle and shot amazing groups, but found the rifle to heavy for field use. I replaced the .920 barrel with the straight tapered match barrel, went to sight it in and found that my zero had not changed. The barrel shoots groups well under 1 min. angle. I am extremely satisfied with this barrel. Also I am using a Houge overmolded stock and am still getting really good groups. Mel Kidd
