    New Toy - 10/22 TD w/ Bull Barrel

    I have a 10/22 TD and saw a post on rimfire central about a guy who machined a bull barrel for it. I know there will be those who say why in the world would you do that? Defeats the purpose of the gun. I did it because its bad ass. Plain and simple. I am not as talented as the other gentleman that did it but I do know some folks that are so... why the hell not. I love to shoot .22lr and this is a real fin gun to shoot.

    So anyway, here are a few pics. I'd like to polish the barrel and then wait to see if anyone comes out with a replacement stock. If not, I will just stick with this one for the time being. If you haven't seen the other, it looks great with a custom hogue over molded stock. I haven't made it that far yet.

    Figured I would share.

    It is actually well balanced. The "muzzle brake" is simply a thread protector for the moment. I typically shoot suppressed so its really just there for protection. Doesn't look all that bad though.

    I saw that thread on RFC that you referred to. That guy did a nice job. You also did a nice job.

    It does not make any difference what anybody else thinks about the heavy barrel on the TD 10/22. You are the only person that has to like it.

    I also like it!!

    I'm patiently waiting for huntertown to release their takedown integral suppressed barrel. That will be an awesome combo.

    I am not aware of an aftermarket barrel yet. I got this TD in January and had looked before buying for a bull barrel with no luck. There is a lot of modification that has to be done (from what I understand it is a lot more work than what it looks like) and it took me awhile to find someone who was willing to try. If you search for TD with a Bull Barrel and go to images, you can see the barrel mods that have to be made.

    I like the Thompson Machine one but I have a Sparrow and didn't want to spend $850 + 200 to the ATF. I have ~$320 in this one which includes the price of the Green Mountain barrel. I got the barrel around Christmas time when GM Barrels does a 12 days of Christmas sale and sells items for 50% off. So I bought a 24" barrel and had it shortened to 20". Its balanced really well with the scope on it and it shoots lights out.

    Thompson Machine is WAY over-priced for their stuff. Huntertown has a nice integral with all the perfect features at a street price of less than 300 bucks.

    Ill be getting one as soon as they get the version for the takedown out. Just hope its possible to get a front iron sight on it as Id like to keep my takedown as simple as possible.

    No current barrel will work, the way the extension feeds into the locking mechanism wont allow for it. Its really a cool setup and some are even reporting a little better accuracy due to no barrel droop. Mine just has iron sights and itll shoot reasonable for my crap iron sight skill.

    Would be sick if Tacsol made a lightweight aluminum bull barrel for the TD. That and a Hogue stock and that would make one sick ass rifle.
