Kidd Ultra lightweight in the house



Log in to see fewer ads
Received my Kidd Ultra lightweight barrel today .
Not only they produce some of the finest 10/22 accessories, they have the quickest service I’ve experienced .
I cleaned out my receiver hole with some fine sandpaper and the barrel was still a tight fit . It went in about half way using some lube . After lining up the barrel I tapped the butt of the receiver on the carpeted floor a couple of times to seat the barrel .
I was going to put the action into a PMACA chassis, but chose to put it in a Hogue stock just because the Hogue won’t be as cold to handle this time of the year . And it’s the lightest of the stocks I own . 5.5# with a 4-16x 40 scope .
Hopefully going take it to range tomorrow if the weather cooperates.
Pics when I get back .

Kidd Ultra lightweight range day

I beat the rain this morning to the range , but not the wind .
I took my new Kidd Ultra lightweight build in a Hogue stock and my new Whistlepig barrel build in a PMACA chassis .
I like the looks of the chassis build , but prefer the Hogue build for shooting .
Both barrels functioned great . Accuracy was pretty close between them with a slight edge to the Kidd . Iíd be super disappointed if it didnít since it costs double what I paid for the Whistlepig.
Ammo was mainly CCI SV except for three 25 mags of CCI AR . Both barrels shot ragged holes at 25 yards , in spite of the windy conditions ( our weighted down target stands got blown over twice ) .
We pulled our targets and setup a 4Ē plate and some cans at the backstop berm thatís around 115 yards . The 4Ē plate was easy to hit even with the one rifle that wore a Nikon 2-7 scope .
Iíll definitely buy another , of both .
Iíll be swapping out some Green Mountain barrels just to lighten up the rifles . Makes it easier loading and unloading at the house and range .
BTW , as soon as I got home , the Whistlepig barreled action went into a Hogue stock and got a cheap red dot , ready for the next range trip .
Pics of the rifles and the results on the cans on the berm .

I really think you will enjoy the accuracy of the Kidd Ultralight barrels. I only have two but, they both hammer. One threaded on a Kidd and one non-threaded on a Ruger DSP.
Sorry about the troll thing.

BTW , in case anybody wondered .
I picked up the leftover metal and deposited it in the dumpster at the range . We also swept our two lanes and the one next to us before we left .
Always try to leave it better than we found it !

Thanks , so do I .
Whatís not to like . Got the accuracy I need in a lightweight package .
Although I do enjoy shooting tiny groups , I sometimes like to spend a few hours , just plinking .
I save soup and other metal cans for targets .
Also enjoy shooting metal plates too . I hang them on shepherds hooks at the berm .
Weíve have used plastic army men for targets .

BTW , my shooting buddy , my brother , is a Vietnam Veteran Marine . We pretend the plastic soldiers are Vietcong. .
Takes a good scope and an accurate rifle to takeout a 3” tall target at 115 yards

I plan on ordering another and putting it in a Bell & Carlson Anschutz stock and giving it a shot at the USBR Green Monster Target with with some SK ammo and see just how good one of them will shoot .

Was going to pickup another Whistlepig, but they decided to raise their sale price that was supposed to last until 12-31-19 .
For a little more I went with another Kidd .
Also the Kidd fits my Bell & Carlson stock without altering the stock . My Whistlepig actions will not .
