I hate stuck barrels, they are the bane of my existence with 10/22's

good aftermarket barrel + good after market receiver = nightmare useually needing a heat gun on the receiver and the barrel in a freezer over night

i really like this idea and will construct one as soon as i get home

Thanks for the useful tip; I have six (6) Ruger 10/22s and want to swap/move around some of their barrels

I just used this trick to pop out a barrel last night. After looking at the pics posted it took about 15 minutes and I had a loose barrel in hand. Many, many, many thanks to the Wil E Coyote super genius that came up with the idea!!

Yet more thanks to Wil E Coyote... I installed a Volquartsen Carbon Fiber barrel recently and it took a number of serious whacks with a rubber mallet on the receiver to pair it with the barrel. After installation I sort of resigned myself to keeping this barrel and receiver paired.

I've been thinking about switching this barrel to a black receiver, but knowing what it took to install, I didn't dare want to try removal without searching here for a technique. Thanks again, buddy!

It would seem that the newer 10/22s with the the plastic have very tight fits, I think this should help accuracy.

I just removed the stock barrel from my charger.

I went with the plastic mallet against the receiver technique.

It worked very well... Very Quick...

The problem that made the barrel stick in the first was the paint from the receiver (black) got between the barrel and the receiver.

Emery cloth cured this quickly and the barrel can be inserted and removed easily.

Now it's off to the machinist for threading...

Happy New Year!!

Mike

Stunning!! I had a Volquartsen barrel that I malleted onto my Charger receiver, I wanted to change it out for another barrel EXCEPT I was unable to get it off. Then last night I ran across this thread. It tool me longer to build the jig to press the barrel out than it took to remove the barrel. Thank you sharing this with us.

Somebody posted a nearly identical barrel removal setup some time ago. Still a good proceedure though.

Dude, u should get paid for advice like this.
Just bought my 1st 10/22
ordered my first aftermarket barrel. When it came time to put in the new one, the old one wouldn't come out. Did some vice tricks, even some flat punch hammering. Nothing would work.
So I read here. And did the bolt trick. It worked great! Like a dead blow hammer - and before this, it was stuck.
Anyway, thanks for the tip!

To anyone else with this problem. I would give this a try, it works great!

Thanks, wish I saw this earlier, it would have saved me a cut thumb. (don't ask.)

Edited to add: Worked like a charm. Barrel was on TIGHT! and when it finally popped out, it really popped out! (I caught it in a tube, with plastic stuffed at the bottom, with a towel beneath that. New barrel installed so much easier.

Also, I drilled a 1-1/2" hole in my 1x6, it was big enough for the barrel and the block. I shimmed it with a paint stick from a big box home improvement store. Couldn't find a small enough dowel but the handle on those foam paint brushes worked great!

That's awesome! I have a Kidd 20" in a factory receiver, been wanting to upgrade the receiver to a Kidd but been dreading the barrel removal (especially knowing how hard it was to get it on). Will definitely be building one of these rigs soon! Thanks!
