Thanks all for your info. Since I had already acquired a 16" bull barrel barrel I reckon CPC is my next consideration. Read that they will thread receiver and barrel and make it rock solid and straight. All sounds great to me. Thanks again

Unless you thread it, and weld on a flash hider. That is a legal solution. Done with countless AR-15 14.5" barrels.
After the holidays I will be looking to do this. Right now I just ordered my third PMACA chassis. First two in black anodized and the third now being cerakoted in FDE.

They don't have to be "welded" on, there are other methods that meet the requirement of being "permanently" attached.
Do you mean cross pinned? Welding a muzzle brake/flash suppressor all the way around certainly is one way. The other involves cross pinning and welding over the pins. The purpose is to ensure that the pins can't be removed. Is there another"legal" method?

You don't even have to weld over the pins!

Awhile back I read a test where a guy had two of the factory 10/22T barrels that were provided to him unchambered or cut. He also had one of the top 22 BR barrels of about 9 years ago. He chambered all four barrels and fitted them to a switch barrel 22 bench rest rifle.

He did some very extensive testing. I believe the other barrels were Liljas but I would have to find the article to be positive.

4 barrels tested results:
1. Lilja
2. Ruger
3. Lilja
$. Ruger

The results were so close that he stated that done in any other combination of days shot and ammo used the order could have been reversed front to back. The Ruger 10/22 barrel is a VERY good barrel. Not onl;y that but if you can find one that was made before they cut costs the highly polished Blued 10/22T barrel is, in my opinion, probably the prettiest heavy barrel you can put on a 10/22.

It is a shame they do not finish them like they used to. Still they are an excellent barrel especially when Randy does his thing to them! :):bthumb:

I will not dispute on that, because I don't represent the ATF. But a few years ago, one of the local smiths tried his version of "linear" pinning vs radial pinning, he won his case but it was questioned!
If the barrel stayed attached to the firearm, one would be manufacturing a SBR, that would require an 07FFL and SOT, and maybe technically, paper work, or a letter from the ATF.

Which is a lot of commotion, for a rechambering of a 10/22 barrel.

probably best to add the permanent brake first, then trim.

Everyone I know of who rechambers 10/22 barrels only recuts and sets back the barrel between .200-.250 inches. If the stock barrel starts at 16.5", not an issue. I have a reworked 22" Wally World special barrel that is now 21.8" Nemohunter did it about 2008 IIRC.
