Default Are all versa pack 22lr 20 inch?

Finally picked up a nice versa pack 22lr. Mine is 20 inch. Was this the only size this came in?

After reading all I can find about it I guess 20 inch is all they made.

Mine is 20 Inch as well. The previous owner did ream it out to 22 magnum though...
It shoots well and does give the squirrels quite a thump....

I have seen versa pack barrels discussed on this forum but had never heard of them before for h&r guns As I understand it they are 22 barrels that can be used on standard h&r receivers due to offset bores. Rossi has a similar arrangement on the matched pair 22/410. Were these offered by H&R or after market? I have always wished I could get a 22 barrel for one of my existing receivers. I saw some on ebay but they are pretty salty $300. Am I understanding this correctly, if so what would be a going price for one of these? Purebred, I have a .22 handi and it has a 20in. barrel.

22/410 VPs were NEF factory offerings for many years, they even made a 3-barrel combo version with centerfire rifle, rimfire and shotgun barrel one year.

Thanks Tim, will a versa pack 22 barrel fit on a standard sb1 receiver? What about the forearm will that accept a standard one?

Answer to your question Mike. The versa pack barrel I bought fit perfect on my 12 gauge SB1 frame. Lockup was perfect and fired a few shells with no problem. I just didn't know if they were 20 inch barrels. I guess they were. Also the front fore arm fit perfect. Even though the 22 barrel is not as wide as the 12 gauge there was no real difference in appearance.

Thanks Purebred, that's what I wanted to know. I think I will try to find one, that would round out a set of H&R calibers and gauges.

I think ALL 22 rimfire barrels are 20" except the 17HMR, 17M2 Sportsters and 22 Mag Ultra Varmint which are 22" bull barrels, I'm not sure of the 3-barrel 17HMR rimfire barrel, I only know of a couple here that have owned them and it's been a while, they're shown in the VP sticky above which has discussion about VP barrels fitting other frame, H&R wouldn't fit a VP barrel as accessory barrel, but the will fit after proper fitting as many have done, some have even rechambered them to 22 mag.
