Yesterday I by chance saw that Ebay was having a sale by coupon code for 20% off. I seized the opportunity to order another Kidd barrel for the Kidd 22.
I went with the same .920 straight profile in matte stainless but with a shorter length of 16.5". I of course ordered it threaded and with the beautifully fitted Kidd thread protector.
Once this barrel arrives and I install it, I plan to take the 20" Kidd barrel I take off and have it machined and fitted to the Ruger American .22lr bolt action I have posted about here.
There is a gun smith in Michigan who specializes in this swap. He cuts the shank from the barrel, machines a new shank, cuts a new match chamber and extraction groove and fits it all together. There is yet no aftermarket barrels for the Ruger American Rimfire rifles.
I will have it machined to 16.5" and threaded too. A deadly accurate 22 or three will be a very useful thing, don't discount its utility. Easy to supress, easy to feed and penetrates very well with standard velocity solids.
I will post results once all this gets done.
