Adaptive Tactical announced new Tac-Hammer barrels for the Ruger 10/22 rifles and Charger pistols. This barrel design is designed to offer the benefits of a bull barrel without adding the weight. The company advises they accomplish this by using a rigid core barrel with a stepped design and combining it with a post-tension aluminum shroud.
Adaptive Tactical is offering barrels for the standard and take down versions of both the rifle and pistol. Barrels are made of P4140 steel, and the shrouds are made of 6061 aluminum. All of the barrels use a 1:16″ twist and are threaded (1/2×28).
Rifle versions have a suggested retail price of $329.99 while the Charger models list at $299.99.
