| E. R. Shaw has an excellent reputation for quality and precision in their center fire rifle barrels, so now it seems
fitting that they should be making replacement barrels for the Ruger 10/22 as
well. Here's the story...
These E. R. Shaw barrels pack a lot of desirable accuracy features into a very low Basic Barrel Price. Built on an air gauged chromoly steel blank the "Basic Blue" 10/22 barrel (top right) is 18" long and features a target crown and Bentz 22 LR match chamber. Finished in the heavy .920" dia meter target barrel contour, this barrel is built for accuracy.
At the other end of the price range, the Helical Fluted stainless E. R. Shaw barrel adds the style and weight reduction characteristics of fluting while retaining the heavy .920 barrel stiffness. The Helical Fluted Stainless

(bottom above) barrel uses E. R. Shaw's patented helical fluting process for a look you can't get anywhere else. The same target crown and Bentz 22 LR match chamber are included only this time in an air gauged stainless barrel.
|What You Need to Know... You can upgrade your Ruger 10/22 quickly and easily if you remember a few simple points. First, these are .920 diameter bull barrels. They have no taper and are most likely too wide to fit in your original factory Ruger 10/22 stock. The easiest (and most fun) solution to this is to replace the stock with something exotic and adult sized. We have several options on our Ruger 10/22 Stocks page. Second, you can't realize the full accuracy potential of these gun barrels unless you use a parallax adjustable riflescope. We have an explanation and can recommend several several good scopes and scope mounts on our Ruger 10/22 Scopes and Mounts webpage.||
Finally, we have some straight forward barrel installation instructions that should give you an idea of what's involved and what to consider. Good luck and Good Shooting!
