10/22 strut?

Hey Kevin.

I'm looking for a faux gas tube for a 10/22 mock-SOCOM m1a build. I was thinking an Accu-strut SOCOM would be the ticket. I noticed in your FAQ that it mentions your product is not compatible with the 10/22. Am I wrong in assuming it wouldn't take much work to fit to my 10/22? The difference in diameter between my 581 tactical 14 and my 10/22 is only a few hundreths. Would a tapered barrel affect the clamping that much?

Hello Crowcifier!

Can't make any specific recommendations for a non-standard application. The Accu-strut clamp is designed as a flex-clamp and will negotiate tapers and pretty much any barrel up to 5/8" in diameter.

Thanks, Kevin!

About what I figured...gonna pull the trigger one of these days. You've got the blued socom in stock right? After all my strut research, it seems you are the godfather of this idea. Makes sense, as yours looks the best, IMO. Just gotta support the shepard not the sheep, if ya know what I mean.

Well, thank you, Crowcifier! I never get tired of hearing kind words from happy or soon-to-be-happy customers. Really, this kind of thing means a lot to me. Yes, I do seem to remember inventing something called a barrel strut.

Kevin
