I bought a 16" barrel that has been turned down to light-weight profile from the FSB foward... the only markings I can find on it now is a date 1/98 just to the rear of the hand guard cap,(bottom of barrel) and what looks like a 0(zero) just in front of the barrel ext.

Anyone got these markings on their barrels??

The date and the "0" makes me think that it is a Colt barrel. I have a couple with dates and "0"s on them. The fact that it was turned down forward of the FSB, where the standard Colt barrel stamping would have been, is another reason.

Well, that sounds reasonable. My barrel is stepped down to .565 forward of the FSB(Cast, no marks and a pinned sling swivel), and the lathe worg looks "rougher" than whats under the handguards... Thanks for all the info!!!
