Meet Adaptive Tactical’s New Tac-Hammer Barrel for the Legendary Ruger® 10/22®

December 01, 2015

The Tac-Hammer Rigid-Core Post-Tension Barrel provides the benefits of a bull barrel’s larger diameter and related stiffness – greater accuracy and repeatability of shot – without the added weight.

Nampa, Idaho (December 2015) – Adaptive Tactical, LLC, manufacturers of innovative firearm stocks and accessories, has developed a way to improve rifle accuracy, performance, shouldering and portability with the introduction of its Tac-Hammer Rigid-Core Post-Tension Barrel for Ruger® 10/22®, 10/22® Takedown, 10/22® Charger and 10/22® Charger Takedown models.

“Many of our earliest memories hunting and shooting in the outdoors include the iconic Ruger® 10/22®. We have a bit of a soft spot for the rifle and we wanted to do our part to make it a little better. Our Tac-Hammer Barrel gives it the increased accuracy and precision that helps the rifle go from being good to great,” said Gary Cauble, director of sales and marketing for Adaptive Tactical.

The Tac-Hammer Rigid-Core Post-Tension Barrel Package includes a barrel, cantilevered optic rail and front threaded compensator. The barrel delivers the benefits of a bull barrel’s larger diameter and related stiffness – greater accuracy and repeatability of shot – without the added weight. It accomplishes this through a rigid-core, stepped barrel design encased within a post-tension, aluminum shroud. The Tac-Hammer Barrel design is about 40 percent lighter than the standard bull barrel. The included compensator reduces muzzle rise, increasing second and third shot accuracy.
