Re: Volquartsen stabilation module
I assume you have a 10/22 as that is the only firearm I'm aware of that volquartsen makes the module for. It is designed to fit over the heavy profile barrel or "bull barrel" that many people install as an after market upgrade. It has a diameter of .920 inches the whole length of the barrel.
It should also be noted that to install one of the heavy barrels you would either need a new stock or to drill out your existing one to fit the larger profile. You probably have the standard barrel or what is referred to as the "sporter" profile.
The front sight is removed by simply drifting it out with either a special tool that gunsmiths might have, or else using a vice, a brass rod and a hammer. If I remember correctly it drifts out from left to right (if you're looking at the front sight like you're shouldering the rifle), but I could be wrong on that.
I've never heard anyone say that the stabilization module really did anything, but if you do install it and notice that it does have an effect, please let us know.
Here is a picture of a 10/22 bull barrel.
Knowing is half the battle...
Of course, the other half is violence.
