copied this from Ekie's m16 guide

Colt increased the diameter of the AR-15 barrel beyond ArmaLite's original specs during production of the Model 601. Diameter was increased from app. .565" to app. .575" in front of the front sight base.

thank you.

i went a little smaller than that. it gives it more of an old school effect.
