Picked up an old A2 upper recently, for a song, and have been shopping around, hemmin and hawin over a suitable barrel (for over a month) and saw these today! I prefer a pencil barrel for this one and the 1:12 twist is fantastic for shooting cast bullets.

Passing the link along for posterity...

They had a recall a few months ago. Drills touched other
side of barrel while doing gas ports.

From the ad: These barrels are fully functional but do have a minor blemish in the bore opposite the gas port. It will function as normal. Because of the blemish, we are selling these barrels at a discount price.

If it was the style of barrel I was wanting, and didnt figure on reselling soon, I'd not be afraid of a barrel with 1.5 gas ports. But given today's AR parts market that deal doesnt grab me outside of a retro project.
