Carbon tensioned barrel for Ruger 10/22

Hi, I am looking to put an aftermarket barrel on my 10/22, was looking at Green Mountain, Kidd, and volquartsen, but I want it threaded for a moderator, and the US barrels are either not threaded, or use a different thread so my moderator wont fit. Then saw an add for a NZ made Ranger carbon tensioned barrel, with integrated moderator. They claim this barrel is as accurate as an aftermarket bull barrel. Does any one know who the barrel is made by, and has anyone had first hand experience with this barrel good or bad ?

you could easily just buy an unthreaded barrel from the US and get it threaded here?

Carbon wound barrels are made of a skinny stainless barrel with a lot of carbon fibre wound over it ,to give it strength and rigidity,
there is usually a stop washer at each end to hold the fiber in ,so there is no room for threading unless planned for in manufacture
  

Shooting is the most fun you can legally have with your clothes on .

The lazy do not roast any game, but the diligent feed on the riches of the hunt.
