Guys

Is there a site to buy true 22 cal AR barrels in lengths up to 24" long,
I don't want LW barrels, prefer unchoked barrels,
with different rifling twists 1x10" thru 1x14",
want to do an experiment with different types/weights of pellets etc.

Tia,
Don

... up to at least 21". Might check there. TJs also makes some really nice stuff.

the 1-16 twist rate should work for 30-40 grain bullets
as I use a 1-16 twist on a Daystate Air Ranger that has
a .223 barrel and it works very well , you will need
someone to do some machining on the breach to fit it
to your air gun . and your ammo will need to be .224 OD diameter . http://www.gmriflebarrel.com/bx22lr-25- ... r-rimfire/

Thanks for the info,
and will add this info,

I just received an email from Green Mtn bbl's,
per info received from them,
"They don't make any AR bbl's, only 22 LR Rimfire bbls".

IMHO,
and from little I know about AR's, I believe AR bore diameter is around .217"?,
the 22 RF bbl's would be too large of a bore diameter, ie, .222" diameter
to work properly for accuracy or fit the AR pellets etc.

If I am out in left field, let me know.

Thanks,
Don

Green Mountain barrels work great for cast bullets. Your right about bore diameter, if you want to shoot pellets you'll need .217 diameter. Check out TJ"s barrels, they are choked, but Diablo pellets shoot better through a choked barrel. He probably can do a unchoked barrel if your mind is made up.
