Anyone remember Tony's Powderhorn Barrels?



Log in to see fewer ads
Back in the 1990s, I ordered a Tony's Powderhorn Barrel from Brownell's. With a host of other parts, I built a very nice shooting 10/22 with that barrel.

For a time, I had lost that gun ( I had sold it to a friend ) but have since regained it.

It's an incredible shooter...have since wanted to know the history of those barrels.

Does anyone know the story behind the Tony's Powderhorn barrels? The internet is VERY scant on information.

Thank you, everyone!!!

Yes I remember

Bough one also in 1994 or 95 from Brownell's
Has a Benz chamber, Douglas premium XXX air gauged barrel, .920 fluted hvy.
Still have the rifle.




Very accurate from day one.



Last I looked it's # 14th on the ultimate 50 yard contest here on RFC.
I have never shot any hi-end over $10 buck a box of ammo in it.

Mine is similarly accurate which is one of the reasons I was asking about these barrels.
