Can a1022 barrel be fitted to a Mark II ?



Log in to see fewer ads
I was just looking at mr Ruger detrius and I had this thought. I would also have to come up with some kind of stock to complete the rifle. Kind of like that buck mark thing or maybe Mauser thing or that ak thing. But first the barrel.is this reasonably possible?

No .
Of course almost anything is possible , but it would take way too much machining to make it work and you’d most likely have to start with a bull barrel .
Not only that , but you would be creating the serial numbered part of the pistol .
Not feasible IMO . Kirby

Give Volquartsen a call. It's very possible they can build something for you. I talked on the phone with them and they made it sound positive. When I called Tactical Solutions it never getting past the lady who answered the phone.

If you put a barrel longer than 16" then you can put a stock on the pistol and just be a long barreled pistol, with a shoulder stock. There are custom gun smiths that will make a long barrel for you but it will be expensive. If I were going to spend the money to make a long barreled pistol I would use a quality barrel because it will be expensive so you should have a good gun when you are finished.
AMT actually sold a upper and shoulder stock at one time to convert your MK II to a carbine but I am sure these are extremely rare now !!

The original post ask if a 10/22 barrel could be fitted to his Mark II . That’s a a no .
If he’d asked if a longer barrel could be fitted to a Mark II , then the answer would be yes . But you still need to find someone to make it and since it is the part that carries the serial number , it would have to be designated as a rifle or pistol and would have to be transferred by an ffl.

Started as a standard SS receiver that someone had cut and badly threaded in an attempt to make a suppressed hush puppy as detailed in some of the 22 magazines of the '80s (anybody else here old enough to remember those? lol).

Barrel stub was removed. An 18" SS 10/22 barrel was trimmed just in front of the (behind?) the notch used to secure it into the 10/22 receiver, turned down and threaded to fit in the mkII receiver.
Barrel was then indexed, and with a lot of cussing and wierd jigging a feed ramp and extractor slot was cut into the barrel on the mill. Barrel was then chambered, had the front sight moved back, and threaded for a suppresor
A fun project and just one of those things that happen when you have an extra receiver, an extra barrel, access to a lathe and a mill, spare time, and a running buddy who agrees that it would be a good idea. 😛

That is a very cool result. It may not have been cost competitive, elegant, or straightforward, but I admire the dedication and work that went into the project. Gunsmithing for the sake of saving a ruined gun is awfully cool. Great work.

I do find it interesting that the rear sight is still on the barrel. The sight picture must be quite busy, even with the rifle rear sight blade folded.

Would love to see more pics, including the barrel/receiver interface and the feed ramp, as a fan of custom work.

The sight on the barrel is actually the one used, the original rear sight is too low. The barrel sight is significantly taller than the receiver mounted one.
