How the 10/22 Bull Barrel Rifle Was Born
The first “Bull Barrel” Ruger 10/22 rifle was born in the early 1980s by Jim Clark Jr. and Clark Custom Guns employee Randy Smith. The idea behind the gun was to keep weight in the forward part of the rifle to provide stability, improve accuracy over the factory, and to further evolve the Ruger 10/22. Jim Clark Jr, as well as other top shooters, went on to win multiple national level championships with the Clark 10/22. Other companies since then have gone on to further evolve this magnificent platform as well as further evolution from Clark, but that first old bull barrel 10/22 was born inside the Clark Custom shop over 35 years ago in Keithville, Louisiana.
We build on genuine Ruger 10/22® and offer three purchase options:
- Buy a complete gun from us
- Send your gun for conversion
- Purchase a barreled action if you have your own stock, or prefer one of our aftermarket stocks.
*All new complete guns must be shipped to a licensed dealer. An original signature copy of dealer’s FFL must be on file at our shop before we can ship.
Watch the Jim Clark and Tom Gresham display the accuracy of a Clark 10/22!
