The HTA 10/22 Bull Barrel lineup was designed with rimfire competitors in mind; shooters who demand precision, reliability, and a rifle that cleans up easily and consistently, even after firing hundreds of rounds or more in one match or range outing. For this reason, these barrels feature a full .920" profile, "Bentz" reamed chamber, Melonited bore for ease of cleaning and extended rifling longevity, and the option of either a target crown or a 1/2-28 threaded muzzle for further customization. A knurled thread protector is included with threaded barrels to prevent the threads from being damaged when a muzzle device is not attached. Fluting is also an available option which aids in cooling and eliminates about a half pound of weight. Barrels measure 18" in length.
WARNING: HTA 10/22 bull barrels are chambered to Bentz chamber specifications. Velocitor and Stinger ammunition can cause unsafe pressures in this style chamber. DO NOT USE STINGER OR VELOCITOR AMMUNITION IN BENTZ CHAMBERED BARRELS. This applies only to our bull barrels.
Each barrel is made from a 4140 steel barrel blank, button rifled, air gauged, and thermo stress relieved twice (before and after turning) for maximized accuracy. But the feature of these barrels that really puts them head and shoulders above the competition is the process each barrel undergoes after they are machined. Our barrels are treated with Melonite, a process revered in the firearms community, which imparts nitrogen and carbon into the very molecular structure of the barrel surface, producing a rock hard layer inside and out. Finally, each unit is finished in a matte black milspec phosphate to reduce the reflective signature to a minimum. The end result is a barrel that is nearly impervious to corrosion, longer lasting, and easier to clean than traditional steel and stainless steel barrels, not to mention, they give your 10/22 build the look and feel you just can't get with a factory barrel. Made right here in the USA and backed by HTA's lifetime warranty. *Stock and Ruger 10/22 not included.
