This upgraded 6" bull barrel will slip into your .22 Charger™ for more accurate results. 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.

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 at the muzzle end with KIDD marked on the barrel.
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.

Stunning QA/QC
This is my first kidd barrel and I got the 6” SS bead blasted and it is gorgeous. I matched this with a brownells receiver and PMACA chassis and this might be the nicest gun I own. The workmanship and quality are god level. I emailed kidd asking what I can expect from this barrel with Eley match/target. I was told to expect 1/2moa-moa. DID NOT DISAPPOINT! Barrel is thick and rigid, threads are the smoothest threads I’ve ever felt. With a KAK brace and a holosun 503c I can’t hit IPSC torso plates at 220 yards. This barrel rocks. I will always be a Kidd customer after this.

Kidd 6"
The Kidd 6" barrel for the Ruger Charger is the best looking barrel I own. The tollerences are tight and the finish is awesome! The thread protector fits so nice you cannot even tell it is on there. Great looks and functions great also. I love this barrel and will be back to buy more. I have a few chargers. All with different barrels. But this is this is the nicest and best by far.

Ruger barrel perfection
Nice! By FAR the the most finely constructed bbl for the Ruger I have ever had the pleasure of fondling. Perfect companion to my SBR 10/22 with a folding stock. Both of my suppressors mounted perfectly. Bravo, maestro, bravo!

I'm using this 6" barrel on my Ruger 10/22 SBR with a suppressor & it looks and shoots amazing. It is so accurate that people with factory and after market full length barrels are stunned by what you can do with a proper barrel at only 6" long. The craftsmanship is beautiful and the threading is nice and concentric for suppressor use. I think Kidd makes the best 10/22 parts In the world and the prices are reasonable to boot! Thank you for the great product & I highly recommend this barrel.

I am simply blown away at the level of workmanship displayed in this barrel. It`s simply perfect! The thread cap matches the rest of the barrel so well,it looks like a magic trick when I unscrew it. It`s a bit of a tight fit into the receiver but it goes in with some elbow grease. A nice bonus,the bore stops before the threads start. I`d love to buy another of these!

6" barrel
This little barrel is the best thing I have put on my Ruger charger. After following the instructions on breaking in the barrel I was shooting 5 round 1/2" groups at 25 yards with CCI mini mag ammo. It is a little louder than OEM barrel with same ammo, but the trade off is worth it. I also have at 10" barrel with the same results. GREAT
