really, i don't know what these are for. are't guns generally more accurate when there's nothing touching the barrel after it's junction with the action?
why is there one on the 10/22?

Take it off and throw it away. It does nothing for you.

Take it off and keep it in case you decide to sell the gun later.

I think Ruger originally stuck it on there along with the curved buttplate to give the "carbine" version more of a "cowboy" look. If you look at Ruger ads from the 1960's you'll see that even back then only carbine version of the 10/22 had the curved buttplate and the barrel band. The "Sporter" and "International" versions had flat buttplates and no barrel band.
