    I went to the gun show last weekend and seen a sweet looking customized Ruger .22lr's. They had aluminum barrels, cant remember the names, some up to 10". They retailer is J@S guns in evensville, IN. anyone have one of these or know anything about them. The price didnt scare me for a customized pistol, but not knowing anything about them or aluminum barrels is worrying me.

    Bro you can order the tricked out fluted barrels aftermarket...I'd pick a model Ruger you like, and see if it isn't enough fun the way the factory made it.
    The new Mk3's are evidently as good as their earlier models. I'm a stainless fan myself, and the aluminum barrels have a steel liner for the aftermarket units. John Taffin tested em for Guns magazines and they are can even get one in pink I think, LOL. Any increase in accuracy comes from the longer sight radius I'm betting. And you strike me as a fella that takes care of his guns.....
    Why fix it if it isn't broken?
    You will have to get a dealer to order in the barrel, and do a transfer if you order it aftermarket (?) I don't understand that as you can trick out a 10/22 without any paperwork.....but I'm not with the ATF on a lot of things.

    You can order barrels from places like Midway,topglock and other places online.I've never heard of doing a transfer for an after market barrel.I'm not saying you are wrong bootshawl,thats just a first for me.

    The reason the FFL transfer is required for these barrels is that the barrel is mounted to the receiver, which is the serialized part.

    On something like the 10/22, the barrel is separate from the (serialized) receiver.
