View Full Version : Barrel wear, how to tell?

September 15, 2001, 16:56
When someone says they estimate barrel wear is 30%, I assume that they mean about 70% of the barrel is left. 1.) Is that true?
2.)How does one tell, is it just experience? 3.) When people talk about a lightly pitted bore near the muzzle, how much does this affect accuracy?
4.) Why do so many bores pit near the muzzle, at least that's what I seem to hear?
5.)how much would a G1 barrel that has 30% wear be worth? 6.) Does a G1 need a special set of handguards? thanks Kyle
