Anyone have experience with Lothar Walther? Apparently they make barrels and even prefit 17hm2 barrels for various guns including CZ's and Ruger Precision rimfires.

IMO one of the very best barrels out there... KIDD uses their bored and rifled blanks..nuff said.

https://www.coolguyguns.com/KIDD-22L...rrel_p_27.html

Our aftermarket replacement for the .22LR bull barrel is the ultimate performer in accuracy. Our stainless steel material along with our unique manufacturing procedures guarantee that our match barrel will group 1/2" at 50 yards. This bull barrel will slip into your Ruger® 10/22® receiver or other aftermarket 10/22® receiver. It comes in three lengths 20", 18", 16.5" and the stainless steel finish is offered in a polished or bead blast. The best things about these match bull barrels are their simplicity. They tend to be more nose heavy then our other barrels but in this way they create an advantage while target shooting. The advantage is created by slowing down the movement of the rifle as a whole. When the rifle movement is slow the target appears for a longer amount of time in the scope.

Barrel weight:
20" match barrel= 3 pounds 5 ounces
18" match barrel= 3 pounds 3 ounces
16.5" match barrel= 3 pounds 1 ounce
We believe these are the finest barrels on the market, each one is hand lapped. Our stainless steel barrel is bored and rifled by Lothar Walther in Germany. Tony Kidd then performs all the final machining to make our match barrel a worthy KIDD product. A proprietary chamber reamer is used to ensure the cartridge and bullet feed smoothly. Our barrels are chambered to accept .22 LR ammo and have a 1:16 twist. Our muzzle threading is 1/2"-28 and is available with a protective cap or muzzle brake

Lothar Walther makes great blanks.

Even their 50 BMG barrels are great.

Has anyone been able to order one from them. I add to the cart and it only has option to submit an offer. Tried 4 times now. I called and they told me I could get the 17hm2 in a 16" but had to email sales. Still waiting after a week.

Any updates on successfully making an order?

Not yet. Going to call and get something figured out tomorrow. If not, I plan on buying a Whistle pig instead.

I did end up getting a reply from a rep via email. We are going to get the details hammered out on Monday. He said doing a shorter 16.5" 17hm2 barrel, vs the standard 18" they do, is no problem but may be a couple weeks before next production run.
