  • 2 POUND 22LR barrel
  • SLIP FIT DESIGN for the Ruger 10/22
  • STAINLESS STEEL core construction
  • HAND LAPPED individually 
  • 11 degree crown, 1:16 twist, convex extractor slot

Our aftermarket lightweight 10-22 barrel is an aftermarket replacement for the Ruger 10-22 barrel.  This is a fantastic 2 pound 10-22 barrel to slip into your Ruger 10-22 rifle or other aftermarket 10-22 receiver.  This lightweight bull barrel design is unique due to the singular construction of the barrel, breech to muzzle.  Then we sleeve the barrel with a black or silver anodized tube to give it a bull barrel look, along with an extremely rigid and durable construction.  This innovation in the 10-22 barrel gives it unparalleled accuracy in this weight class.  As an aside, if you are looking for an even lighter lightweight 10-22 barrel, we offer the Ultra Lightweight 10-22 barrel.  

The Kidd 10-22 Lightweight barrel has a bull diameter for the first two inches and then steps down to .870 until the muzzle.  The bull barrel channel of .920 barrel channel works perfect for this barrel.  The 18" barrel weighs 2 pounds and the 16.5" barrel weighs 1 pound 14 ounces

Our muzzle threading is 1/2"-28 and is available with a protective cap or muzzle brake.  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.

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 as you will decrease accuracy. Depending on the ammo, clean the bore around every 500 rounds.

Rating Really Impressive
I went to the range today with my new Kidd barrel, trigger assy, and ejector. The gun fired flawlessly. And very accurate. I won't brag about group size. But, I shot much better than ever before. Get these Kidd parts, you will not be disappointed. And your friends will be impressed.

Rating KIDD Quality
Hello, I have a Ruger 10/22 that my dad bought for me back in 1976. I never got a chance to do a whole lot of shooting with it being that we lived in a major city, but recently I wanted to upgrade it a little. I added a Boyd’s Tacticool stock, a Kidd 18” lightweight barrel, a Kidd scalloped bolt and Kidd charging handle. I followed your directions to the letter for barrel installation and it paid off. The rifle is a serious tack driver. I shot the center out of the target after getting the scope dialed in with just two three shot groups. Your products and workmanship are worth every penny. Next on my list is one of your trigger assemblies. Thanks again. Sincerely, Ron
