The 10" KIDD stainless steel aftermarket pistol barrel weighs 2 pounds. This barrel is used to replace the factory barrel with a .920 diameter bull barrel for increased accuracy and fun.

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 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 it requires that tolerances be held very close for proper machining. Each barrel receives an 11 degree crown and the double ring at the muzzle end with KIDD marked on the barrel. We can offer such a great price on this barrel because we don't sell to distributors, only retail and dealer pricing is offered, so 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".

Avoiding "barrel droop":
First and foremost barrel droop is eliminated with a solid fit between the barrel and the receiver. If the barrel slips in too easily then the shooter should already be aware that there is not a secure fit and gravity will start doing her work immediately. Or if the barrel tenon is not the same diameter throughout the length then a teeter totter effect is set in motion. For instance if the breach end of the tenon is smaller than the shoulder end the weight of the barrel will "pull" the barrel down and barrel droop is created. Or if the breach end of the tenon is larger than the shoulder end then as the tenon is installed in the mortise the breach carves a larger hole and again a teeter totter effect is created as the smaller shoulder end of the tenon sits is a hole that is too large. This same effect would happen if the middle of the barrel tenon was enlarged.

KIDD eliminated barrel droop with the utilization of a resistance fit in this mortise and tenon joint, meaning that the KIDD barrel tenon is just slightly larger in diameter than the KIDD receiver mortise and we make absolutely certain that the tenon is the same diameter throughout the length.

Another problem area to be aware of is the proper utilization of the shoulder. If the shoulder of the barrel does not set flush against the receiver then again the support isn't there. Comparable to setting down a tall glass with a convex bottom, it wants to tilt. We make certain that the shoulder created between the .920" diameter and our tenon is precise. This requires specialty cutting tools to create a very clean step. But if done with less care there will be a ramp rather than a step between these two differing diameters. This ramp will not support the necessary weight and will prevent the shoulder of the barrel from sitting flush against the receiver.

When this barrel fitment is secure we recommend the v-block screws just need to be snug, around 10 inch pounds, which is just snug enough to keep the barrel from moving forward, but not too tight to pull the barrel out of alignment.

Barrel installation:

Depending on your receiver, if there is paint build up in the receiver mortise be sure to scrape that out. We recommend using an anti-seize compound to assist in installation. Anti-seize is readily available at automotive stores. It is best if you can get the barrel tenon started into the receiver mortise, 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.

10/22 SBR
This is my second 10" barrel purchased from KIDD. These barrel shoot outstanding! My kids plink clay targets at various distances. They can easily break them into nothing with cheap bulk ammo. This one runs all ammunition flawlessly. Thanks again for the outstanding products!

Good Quality, Confusing Website
Ordered this 10" barrel for my wife expecting it to have a muzzle brake. The options while ordering were (Muzzle Brake, Stainless Steel Brake $45,and No Thank You). I selected Muzzle Brake. When the barrel arrived it did not have one and I contacted customer service they advised me that they only sell the stainless Muzzle Brake for $45. It would be nice if the options on the website were fixed as to not cause this confusion next time.That being said everything I have purchased from them have been top quality and fantastic products.

Charger barrel
Just installed a 10" Kidd barrel on my charger, for starters, 30' sight in, 1 hole all within a dime. 1" high, At 100yds 6" high, made necessary adj. This barrel shoots as good [or better] at 100 than my long heavy target barrels. This is with a bushnell red Dot. I did have to polish the receiver where the bottom lug protrudes to get the barrel to fit, [the OD of the barrel was a little bigger] a few minutes with a dremel and polishing wheel and it went right in. Am very pleased with this barrel. thanks Dave

Have two of these now. Both shoot single hole groups at 50 meters plus. Almost makes it boring shooting the small steel plate swinging targets. Even at 200 meters, it's pretty hard to miss--no kidding. It's like zing, zing, zing, zing, yawn (all four hit), guess I have to hit the reset plate now... You want to shoot single hole groups? Get one of these, use SK standard quality ammo or better, and make sure you have a nice crisp trigger. Thanks Tony for the best barrel on the planet!
