I am thinking about buying a Deluxe Sporter that I will use for open-sight plinking and target shooting. I am kind of a prefectionist, so I plan to send it to Randy at CPC for his full, trigger bolt and barrel tune-up. I am also considering getting a Green Mountain drop in barrel. All of this raises some questions:

Will the bolt and barrel work that Randy does limit me to match ammunition?

What kind of difference can I expect in accuracy between the non-bull Green Mountain barrel and an "accurized" standard barrel? (This is another way of asking, is the GM barrel worth the extra cost?)

Why does Randy need to do anything to the aftermarket barrels? Aren't they manufactured to high tolerances as it is?

If I get a GM barrel, should I go with the running boar barrel instead of a tapered barrel?

After a barrel tune up you will have a tighter chamber, but if memory sreves me well Randy doesn't make them quite as tight as a Bentz ..... Randy could better answer that question.

Chances are the GM sporter barrel would be marginally more accurate.

Read through the information on Randy's website, he goes into that quite well.

Depends, how much weight do you want? Additional weight can be condusive to good target shooting, of course myself I would most likely go with a short GM bull barrel with Fire Sights. But thats me.

The barrel that Randy sets back and rechamber and recrowns seem to shoot right with the aftermarket barrels and certainly fit the "Super Stock" ideal alot closer. I'm looking for a good stock barrel right now to continue my Super Stock. You will not be limmited to match ammo but I don't believe you will be able to shoot "Stinger" ammo in it....small loss that!!

Most people consider that the extra weight helps improve accuracy when shooting off hand. If you like the open sights and want a heavy barrel GM makes one with Firesights.

I like a 16" bull barrel for shooting off hand, it's not terribly front heavy but just about perfect.

I have a super stock 10/22 walmart special that [email protected] did all the mods to that you want done. He reworked the factory barrel it shoots very well.

here it is, he also turned down the front sight base for me.

Yep, I do 10/22 Tuneups using the original Ruger carbine barrels for people on RFC that ask... (My website says I don't do them but its old an ugly an since Im backed up with tuneup work at a 3.5 to 4 week turnaround I have no intention of puttin lipstick on that old pig)...
Some people want the sights left on, some want them lathe turned off, either way its good... Prices / address / options are currant on website... I normally describe the accuracy of a Tune-up'ed Ruger carbine barrel as being the same if you just stuck a aftermarket barrel on it - but with none of the probems...

Glad to hear you're staying busy. This "Super Stock" thing is starting to get some traction. I just think the concept is very sound and it has to be a kick to take your 10/22 out to the range and watch the faces of folks seeing them shoot that well. I'm startng to look for a barrel for mine. I have the 76 Liberty Carbine and Randy says some of those barrels aren't the best to start with.
