Does this barrel require any special registration I know putting on a gun would require some kind of registration

The barrel in and of itself does not require any registration, as it is not a "firearm." Installing that barrel on a Ruger 10/22 creates a "short-barrelled rifle," which is an NFA classification and requires a $200 tax stamp, approval from ATF, yada yada.

Doc`s right and that barrel appears to be threaded to accept a suppressor....."check your states laws before installing"
More like... "ALL NFA RULES APPLY!"

***EDITED FOR A SNIDE COMMENT***

If you have a 10/22 in the house, you better not have this barrel around, lest you like the word... PUMPED"

With the plethora of 10/22 take-off barrels available for next to nothing looks like someone could do ok shortening and threading them or would the production of the barrel fall under a different set of rules

Nope. The barrel itself is meaningless. It might as well be a piece of angle-iron as far at ATF is concerned UNTIL you install it on a receiver. And, like LTS said, the mere possession of the barrel AND a rifle the barrel will fit on MIGHT be a problem...

Now, there was a landmark ruling that went against ATF in favor of Thompson Center, where the court ruled that possession of a shoulder stock for a Contender was not illegal even if you also possessed barrels less than 16" long PROVIDED THAT you also had a barrel 16" long or longer. The court held that since there is a legal combination there, it was OK. That would not hold true for the 10/22 though, I merely raise the point for clarification.

The market for these barrels would be the Class 2 Manufacturer.
