    For Sale - Fast twist 223/224 barrel - CM

    Hello Guys

    I have a 1:7 twist Green Mountain barrel blank that I need a quick sale on - $250 posted. Its a chrome moly one, so perfect for installing on an older action, would make a great 22/250 barrel but will also do for 223 and many others. The dimensions are 30.5 (1.2) at the breech and 16.5 (0.665) at the muzzle and 685 (27") long so its a light to medium sporter weight profile. I left it out on the bench one night and it had some light surface rust (the bore was not affected) that I'll polish off before sending - just mentioned for sake of full disclosure.

    These barrels have a reputation for shooting well, my other one in 243 is fantastic.

    Cheers

    Foster - that's a bl##dy good price.
    If I could get the loan of a 6mm Rem Ackley or 243 Ackley reamer, with a bore guide in 22 calibre, I'd be 'hot to trot'.

    No worries buddy. It is what it is, when you need to discuss some technical details.
