Extra-long sporter contour barrel made for the Ruger 10/22. This barrel is made for us by one of America's premier barrel manufacturers. These barrels are 29" long and for such a long barrel are very well balanced. They maintain the factory sporter contour, and will fit most factory barrel channels. These barrels look very good in a factory Mannlicher stock. Order our 10/22 jumbo stock blank and use as is or create your own ultimate look. When used with sub-sonic ammo* this barrel is especially quiet. When used with CB shorts or CB long caps and our bolt lock, it is nearly silent. Semi-Match chamber.
*Sub-Sonic ammunition is ammunition that has a muzzle velocity less than the speed of sound. Supersonic ammunition is, by its nature, louder than sub sonic ammunition. The supersonic report adds to the sound of discharge. When the goal is reduced noise, always use sub-sonic loads. There are several available. Many standard velocity loads are also sub-sonic, as are many target loads. When looking at ammunition note that the speed of sound varies due to elevation, humidity and other factors but it remains near 1100 fps at sea level.
