Up for sale is a 22" H&R handi barrel. I purchased this barrel in a factory fitted set with a 444 Marlin specifically for the Marlin barrel and frame. I already have a 223 Ultra complete rifle so I am selling this barrel. The barrel is a standard contour ejector model. Barrel is in excellent condition, no rust, no muzzle ware, minimal scratches, riffling is shinny & bright. I am asking $180.00 shipped to your door. Now $170.00 TYD

I tried pulling a tight brush through from muzzle towards breach. Cleaning rod made one full turn at the 14" mark. I did this several times most of which came up the same. Do you have a more accurate way of testing the twist rate? How many different twist rates for 223 were made? As fare as date of manufacture. I am not sure I purchased this at auction used. I thought it was a factory fitted combo both barrels fit tight but then I noticed it was an ejector model with a CBA frame then I noticed the serial # did not match. Normally this would have bothered me but I never intended to fire it because I have very nice Ultra 223.

See the twist rate page in the FAQs sticky for best method of determining twist, a brush on a ball bearing handled rod works best to follow the grooves, or a real tight patched jag. 223 twist is 1:9" for most extractor barrels and 1:12" for most ejector barrels, but they made them both ways around 2005-2006, after 2007 they were all 1:9" extractors.
