Anyone have personal experience with the muzzle-weighted (running boar) Lothar Walter and VQ barrels?

Price is about the same, how's the finish and accuracy?

Passinby,

No experience as of yet BUT I'm currently working on another 10-22 project that'll have one of these muzzle-weighted versions for variety purposes. In addition I wonder if they shoot better than the typical .920 barrels out there.
For econony purposes I want to try a the GM brand as it's barrel is much longer.

Anyone out their I want to know you personal experiences also. Can you show targets?

I contacted VQ about thier muzzle weight barrel and received this reply - my question was:

How does the accuracy of this muzzleweighted barrel compare to your bull barrels and tension barrels?

VQ -"It is very comparable to both the heavy barrels and the carbon fiber tension barrels. We will guarantee 3/8" or better @ 50yds using match ammo."

Where can one buy the Lothar Walther barrels?

LuckyDuc - Thanks for the link! I think I am going to get one of the muzzleweight barrels - just have to decide between blued or stainless. It is going in a walnut stock 10/22 Deluxe. I am just wondering if the 16" barrel will look too short?

Hey mac - yes , get your barrel in 22lr! I also want to hear how it shoots!

That's better than I can shoot and I like the finishing and the slightly longer weighted portion of the VQ. Besides, it's about $30 cheaper if I buy from Rimfire Sports. I'm thinking I'm going to lean that way.

Thanks, everybody

Passinby,

Have you also considered a GM version? It's barrel is much longer compared to the VQ's.

Lucky Duc,

What type/brand of red dot yu have?

wmrimfire,22
Since it was my first red dot ever... I wasn't sure if I would like using it, so I bought the $30 BSA from Wally world.

I like it and I really have fun shooting it. It works quite well for rabbit and squirrel hunting. I bought another one for my Mk II bullseye pistol and just shot my first 287 with it last week.

LuckyDuc,

I too was thinking about trying one of those "red dots". Didn't want to get involved into allot of money until I saw in the Midway catalog a Tasco version that fit the bill good. Perhaps later on I'll get one to try out. Thanks again.
