Question Ultimate Build barrel & receiver help



Log in to see fewer ads
I'm planning on doing my first ultimate build. From what I've read, TacSol has the best receivers due to the two bar guide for their bolts. So, in terms of accuracy, would I be better off getting a TacSol receiver and bolt with a Kidd barrel, or a Kidd barrel action (assuming all other parts are the same)?

I myself like building off of the Tactical Innovations Elite22 receivers and Kidd barrels. I have had very good results. But any good receiver is going to work as long as you have a good tight barrel to receiver fit.

Since barrel to receiver fit is key, would it be better to get a KIDD Supergrade barreled receiver, or should I get a TacSol (or other brand) receiver and a traditional Kidd barrel and have them threaded together?

If your planning on using Kidd components you might as well just use a Kidd receiver. I've used most of the available receivers for the 10/22 and I haven't found any to be better than Kidd. I have had some that were worse. With the Kidd receiver you have the advantage of having the rear tang attachment. If you went with a new Kidd SG there would be no reason to have your barrel threaded into the receiver either. Plus if you ever decide to sell the rifle your going to get more for it if it is a full Kidd build as opposed to a frankenruger. The problem with having a barrel threaded into the receiver is if you ever want to change to a different barrel. So before having it threaded you want to make sure you have a barrel that shoots lights out consistently. Of course if it does shoot like that you may not want to have it threaded and risk losing any of that accuracy.

If it was me I would go with a Kidd Super Grade Receiver with the interchangeable barrel system for a number of reasons .First off it has a longer barrel extension of 1 7/8" compared to the 3/4 " barrel extension .This makes for a much more rigid barrel to receiver connection .In the future if you want to change out barrels it is so simple just loosen 2 screws slide out your barrel and put in a different one tighten up the screws .Go from a heavy barrel to an ultralight in seconds .Lastly it makes cleaning your barrel and receiver a breeze .I can't say enough about the Super Grade Receiver. I also have a Kidd threaded receiver. The rifle is very accurate but I'm stuck with the one barrel. To me the Super Grade from Kidd with interchangeable barrel system is the best on the market.

barrel to receiver fit doesn't account for much on a 10/22...good barrels and ammo are where it starts and ends

That is very true. But you don't want a very accurate barrel that is real loose either. I sure don't.

What about floating the barrel? If it is a loose fit won't there be problems with droop?

Probably, but if your using a Gunsmither's block you should be fine. Personally I would much prefer a tight fitting barrel though.

A great product for barrel droop would be the Gunsmither V block it has a set screw that will tighten up against the barrel to hold it up .I use one and it works very well.

Now that I have found a barrel with a shank that fits snuggly in my old oem receiver I cant blame my 'loose groups' on a 'loose barrel shank to receiver fit' anymore.
I was using a 'gunsmither' type block with the loose fit barrels, none now but I have a pressure pad in the forstock so no long overhang.

Question on match barrels for the Kidd Super Grade Receiver

Iím leaning towards a Kidd Super Grade Receiver and have two questions.

How do the Kidd barrels shoot for rimfire benchrest?

Is there anybody else offing match barrels for that particular receiver?

Thanks,

Zepher

Just because itís a Kidd doesnít make it the best despite what people tell you all the time. I just recently completed a new build using a CST receiver and took advantage of their rear tang hold down (standard feature that you can either use provided you put the rear pillar in your stock or removed via standard 10/22 mount to stock up front). I also use their competition bolt with auto hold open feature which is really nice. I was very fortunate to have come across Zeke06 (Chris) on this forum and he makes custom barrels from Green Mountain blanks to your specifications. He made me an 18Ē from a stainless blank which he then cerakoted to match my black receiver. So far this barrel shoots fabulous. I just had it outside today since the weather finally warmed up and shot it at both 50 and 100yds from a bipod front rest with bag rear. Shooting SK Rifle it shot .27Ē five shot group at 50 and .65Ē at 100yds.
Kidd guarantees 1/2Ē at 50 yds, mine shoots much better than that and I didnít pay as much for my barrel as I would have for a Kidd barrel. With 10/22 rifle builds it comes down to trial and error to find the best combinations, Iíve had several but for now am quite content with this newest build. Good luck on your build whatever you decide on.

Kidd barrel in my honest opinion is a step up above GM by a tad. I got 5 Kidd barrels. All shoot about the same. All shoot SK Pistol Match very well. I like the 20" stainless bead blast barrels.
