Does anyone out there have any experience with the barrels offered on the website "AR7.com"? They are fairly inexpensive, but I am wondering if that's because they aren't worth diddly.

My bad. I should have stipulated that the barrels that I am referring to are for the Ruger 10/22.

Do a search, there are a few threads on them but none of them impressive enough to warrant buying one when there are so many good options.

I am actually more interested in a Green Mountain barrel, but I am wondering, have they fixed the feeding and extracting problems that they use to have?

Never had any issues with any of my Green Mountain barrels. Except stellar accuracy. If that's a problem.

I remember reading those threads. My recollection is that the reviews were generally positive and that they were a good barrel for the money.

I did a search on the AR-7.com barrels for the 10/22, but no luck. I appreciate the input.

I guess that, if I have to, I can deal with the stellar accuracy. 😁

I've purchased GM barrels for 10/22s and ARs. They are all accurate, but the 10/22 barrels seem an unbeatable value. I bought an 18 inch blued bull barrel for $95 from Rimfire Sports and followed GM's break in procedure. It's now part of a rifle with a Kidd trigger and has been the favorite of the fellow who bought it from me several years ago.

I splurged on a 17 inch heavy taper barrel for $130-ish. That rifle will print half inch groups at 50 yards consistently. I am not promising you that Kidd, Volquartsen or Fedderson won't be better, but my experience is that the GM barrels have as much accuracy as I can realistically use.
