Bicycle inner tube.

You want something a little malleable, but able to last a lonhg time. And that wont absorb moisture

That's just about all I do anymore..is tape bed the action.
And a little bit of tape under the barrel at the top of the stock.

I usually start by placing the pad at the very tip of the stock (since it always seems to end up either at, or within a couple inches, of the tip) and work my way back towards the receiver..you have to place it and test until you find the sweet spot, then you glue it in...sometimes you have to play with the pressure as well, by stacking layers (of inner tube) to get more tension on the barrel...

Thanks, I will try the pad at the tip of the stock and then a little further down at the barrel band location to see if one place is better than the other.

Removed the barreled action from the stock and it's going to be a tight fit putting the taped receiver back in. There is definite daylight between the receiver and stock plus movement when the screw was loosened so bedding the receiver should really snug things up.
Thanks again everyone.

For rough use the barrel band also adds some stability to the action in the stock. If your gun falls without the barrel band and hits something at a bad angle you are more likely to crack the stock without the barrel band. Many older 22s with single action screws get their stocks cracked by accidental falls. Otherwise it's not really needed. Most of the knock about fonder stocks will have a barrel band like the Paratrooper style wood stocks, and AMT or Ramline or Choate plastic folders.

The barrel band it mostly asethic intended to convey the look of the old western carbines. Some have sling swivels/studs attached to be more practical.

Barrel Bands have been on long guns for as long as there have been long guns.


They were originally put on to keep the barrel from moving around in the wood stock.

As to WHY the Ruger has one it is most likely for LOOKS.

It's there because Sturm & Ruger liked how the old black powder cartridge guns looked...ever see a #3? (mines chambered in .223, because I couldn't find one in 22 Hornet at the time)


10/22 Carbine was just their auto rimfire version of the design, slightly modified to appeal to more people by adding the pistol grip

which I personally think was a mistake, as it looks quite good without one

Yes... hogged out the channel for the 920 barrel.

I have a sporter and it shot great. I changed the barrel to a Shaw and it shoots even better.
