    i am looking at getting a heavy barrel and new stock for my 10/22. i live in alberta canada and want to be able to pick it up and/or have it shipped to my door.

    i really like the look of the weatherby stock (black with the off white paint drops). but i am having a hard time finding one like that for my 10/22.

    any suggestions?

    im looking to spend no more than $200 on the barrel. the guys at bass pro were no help on there adams and bennett barrel they have on there shelf?

    it was a FAJEN STOCK(BLACK) AND AND ADAMS & BENNETT HEAVY BARREL (BLACK ASWELL)

    BASS PRO PART #0661120732259 FOR $199.99CAN

    is that a good deal or do you guys have anything better

    Thanks Conrad

    My bull barrel Volquartsen barrel will shoot right along with my 17HM2 CZ Varmint gun and is not far behind my Anschutz Model 64 based silhouette 22. It also sports their laminated stock. My Volquartsenized 10/22 will shoot five shot 1/2 inch groups at 50 yds all day long if I do my part and may shoot better than that with a better shooter (??).

    But be warned "Best" and "Cheap" don't go together. You get what you pay for. Volquartsen barrels are NOT cheap. But they MAY BE the best.

    The best barrels out there is simple. In no order, you deside. These barrels will with club match ammo all shoot under 3/8 50 yard group. With a better ammo that can be cut again 25%

    There are some that cost less or look purdier, and from time to time they shoot nearly as well as the 3 above but you are hopeing you get a good one.

    Then are are some used by serious bench/match shooters that cost way more. But the 2 above will not disapoint.

    Stocks?? purly your choice but check out Boyd's Stocks to.

    You are on your own for the barrel (length, profile and WEIGHT), my only suggestion would be to find a gunsmith who can help you determine what would fit before ordering a stock. My experience is that stocks are often bought for look and not comfort and fit that is important to accuracy. Try to figure the length of pull and what kind of balance you will need with the type of shooting you want to do. Heavy barrel guns are great for bench shooting, light tension barrels are better for carrying or 3 position shooting unless your rifle is balanced.
    Just general suggestions.

    one other thing,if you buy a thumbhole stock it limits who can shoot it.they come right hand left hand and ambi.if your right handed then the one for right hand shooters is best.but as i said,it limits who can shoot the gun.as far as the barrels you already have been given advice. old semperfi
