1022 Carbine barrel band question



Log in to see fewer ads
Please help me understand. What exactly is the purpose of the barrel band on my 1022 carbine?
For example if I wanted to replace the ugly scratched up factory stock on my old 1022 carbine with a Boyd's laminated stock for a carbine barrel would eliminating the barrel band be detrimental to the rifles operation and accuracy?

Maybe. Standard taper barrels often benefit from not being free floated, the barrel band , if tight enough, may cause the barrel to shoot better.
But Ruger uses the same barrel in guns without a barrel band.
You may have to put a pressure pad under the barrel at about the same place to make the barrel shoot better.

I have 10/22’s that don’t mind the barrel band, and one that hates the barrel band. I shoot that rifle w/out the band in the regular stock, no issues.

You can put your action into a stock with no provision for the barrel band with no issues.

The band was originally (according to internet rumor) a design feature to make the rifle more akin to the Ruger 44 Deerfield and more “western”

Thanks everyone, I will try taking the barrel band off the next trip of our weekly range day and test for accuracy.

On my carbine stocks... I have "one" that didn't like the band..
I just simply sanded down the inside channel of the band, so it wouldn't touch the barrel.
I think they look best with the band.

Or.... cut the top off. - fills the stock gap/looks better and no interference.



1 small counter-sunk/or not wood screw on each side holds it in place.

Thanks everyone. I tested a 5 shot group @ 50 yrds. off a Rock BR and Protektor rear bag with 6 different ammo brands & loads with the barrel band attached and removed but the groups didn't change much. All were dismal at best with the tightest being CCI SV. It shoots fairly tight groups @ 25 yrds. but over that the groups opened to 1 1/2"- 3" which after searching is the norm for this rifle.

I had replaced the oem trigger with a Ruger BX and will start a new thread with aftermarket barrel & stock recommendations for non competitive paper punching & target shooting. Btw, my range buddy was sitting next to me with his bone stock 1022 sporter and all his 5 shot groups were touching @ 50 yrds., I had to contend with his ragging.

Send that barrel to Randy at CPC.
It will amaze you , when you get it back.
But ? Like posted above.
Might try a pressure pad under the barrel.
Sometimes that really helps.

I tried to expand your picture but no go; is that a bull barrel sitting in the oem carbine stock? Did you rework the stock channel for it?

I admit I'm a noob at these things so what would you use as a pressure pad and would it go under the barrel at the exact location of the barrel band?

One of the guys I’ve shot with, has a radiator hose clamp, claiming the barrel of his 10/22 to the severely battered wood stock. He says it looks like crap, but it shoots very well

you may not need to spend the $$ on an aftermarket barrel and stock..many of my 10/22 carbines do quite well with nothing but some aluminum tape bedding at the receiver, and a piece of bicycle inner tube under the barrel

spend some time tuning/shooting it before you start throwing money at it

Thanks again. I found an old thread and saw how to tighten the receiver in the stock using aluminum tape which I'll also try. I just have to figure out the best spot to place the pad in the stock channel.

Nobody really answered the question as to why it is there. I think the rifle was designed to resemble an M-1 Carbine.
My sleeper has the band clearanced inside so the band does not touch the barrel. You can't tell by looking at it.
