V Block ?



Log in to see fewer ads
ok I searched and searched and cant find an explanation of this v block.

The pic is a stock 10-22. This block isnt touching the barrel and isnt flush on the opposing side.

Is it just a hanging weight?

How does this thing work, whats its purpose?

The v block holds the barrel in the receiver. The v cut in the barrel is captured against the receiver. Its not designed to hold up the barrel .

Retains the barrel.. keeps it snugged up to the Rec. whilst the bolt bangs away at the barrel face. It's not for support. Looks perfect.

if you look closely at this pic of a barrel that's not fully seated yet, you may get a better idea of how the block works

Thanks!

duh! I didnt notice the cut in the barrel located between the arrows

Not that Im going to do this, but I would assume that its probably not a good idea to free float a 10-22 barrel off the aluminum receiver ?
I'm just analyzing since I see what's going on there now.

in my experience sporter weight barrels don't like free floating anyway, and prefer a slight upward pressure out by the tip of the forend...squares cut from a bicycle inner tube works well for a pad here

I've found most .920" bull barrels (20" and under...haven't any hands on with longer barrels) do like to free float, but you have to have a solidly anchored receiver, front and rear...

Take it off and you’ll immediately see how it works.

Gunsmither make a flat block with a setscrew that pushes on the barrel and it works very well putting presure to keep the barrel from drooping. I have used v-blocks with the setscrew also with good results. Most of the after market barrels are tight enough that they really don't benefit from the pressure screw.
