Hi all. Today I received this barrel from another (unmentioned) seller here on the EE. It was sold to me as a “new 20” colt 1/7 twist barrel” and the seller told me that indeed it was 1/7 twist when I emailed him. For now, I believe this was an honest mistake, made by someone who didn't know the difference... I am attempting to contact the seller right now, but in the meantime, I have decided to list it for what it really is here on the EE. If it sells, it will of course save me and the seller some grief. Yes, I do feel I am feeling generous today.
Here is the real
low-down on this barrel:
As-new/unfired 20” chrome-lined Colt M16-A1 barrel assembly, 1/12 twist, with correct "C" marked front sight base, bayonet lug, sling loop, barrel nut, and what are now called “M4 cuts” in the barrel extension (even though there was no “M4” around when this was made)*. This barrel is factory threaded to accept a muzzle device, but the threads show no sign of one ever being installed on it (yes, it's that untouched). The barrel stamp reads: "C MP CHROME BORE."
Again, I’ll sell this for
...now, $155 shipped

*Oh, and it is based on this link: (click here)
that I call the feed ramps on this barrel "M4-like" since they resemble the ones on the right side of the pics shown.
