so i bought this barrel a few years ago and was told that to make this barel colt just turned HBAR's down to M4 profile. is this really the case?

Yes all lightweight/M4 barrels are turn down barrel blanks.

But I am unaware of Colt making any 1:9 twist M4 barrels - IIRC all their M4s are 1:7. Was this an HBAR that somebody else turned down to a M4 profile?

Colt makes 16" M4 1x9 barrels. I have one. Not sure if these are LEO takeoffs or sold as spares.

All their 14.5" appear to be 1x7.

BILLBO has one on the EE for $335

I got several Colt LE carbines that came with 1 in 9 twist 16" barrels. Haven't seen them lately though
