Here is the newest threaded barrel for the MLR22. The rifle itself is a bit heavier than the graphite wrapped barrel due to the aluminum wrapped barrel. Both of these are great as they use a 10/22 receiver and Ruger mags including the BX25s. This rifle is more expensive than the average Ruger 10/22 but in my opinion, it is worth it. Can't wait to add my suppressor and hit the range.
