Many RKS barrels are 8 groove. Gramps started doing only 6 groove barrels after he turned about 75.  When he asks me how my barrel is shooting, I tell him it shoots perty good for a barrel with two grooves missing.


Thanks Joe, I didn't know that.  My Ruger #1 with 8 grooves was built in 1990.  I have two recent RKS barrels from CPA that are 6 groove.  I have a .38-50 that I'll have to take a look at.  Maybe it's 8.  It shoots pretty well either way.

John when I bought my second CPA I picked a Douglas XX barrel as I remember seeing some targets you posted.  I'm quite happy with the barrel on that rifle!

Chris.
