My buddy picked up an upper last weekend at a show. It had a GI surplus upper receiver. It also had a new CAR type 16" barrel marked 556 SUM. No other markings. Does the SUM stand for Stainless Ultra Match? Does anyone have information on a barrel marked SUM? Twist rate? Any ideas or information would be appreciated.

I asked a simple question (I thought politely) to the general Ar15.com population. He crawled me about sending $25 to OlyArms to get the history of my rifle, even though my serial number is in the "records destroyed in the fire" range. Just asked simply this: "How can I guage the twist rate of my barrel?"
