I have seen pencil barrels in full rifle lenght (20 inch) but is there a carbine length pencil barrel?

I believe Colt makes one in 1/7 twist. No link to info or pics that I could find.

Found pic and link (top two carbine uppers have 1/7 Colt barrels):



This is a parts sale thread from ARFCOM member, BILLBO

BILLBO Colt Parts for Sale

Bushmaster also sells their lightweight version in 1/9. Don't know if a Bushy 1/7 LW is available, though.

Where you been?

Bushmaster has been making them in1:9 twist for a couple of years. Both in pre-ban and post-ban form.

I have a post-ban version and love the thing.

BTW Colt also makes one - in pre-ban form, it has a 1:7 twist. However it costs about twice the Bushmaster equivalent.

Okay...after seeing the pictures I feel really stupid! I guess I was just having a brain fart and couldn't remember seeing one...
