Got my new green mountain
Haven't installed it yet and will up date when I have a chance to shoot it. Just wanted to post what I see so far. First I ordered from Rimfire Sports and Custom. Called on sat to see if it was in stock and Allan I believe it was picked up right away talked to me for awile-said it was in and was very helpful. Ordered it and received the tracking # mon I think it was and it arrived today. They were by and far the cheapest price I saw and shipped it fast so very happy on that account.
My factory barrel is the 22" sporter SS. I like the balance so wanted something similar just hoping to tighten groups a little so I ordered the 20" green mountain sporter SS. Weight on factory is 2.012 lbs and the GM barrel is listed as 2.1 but came in at 2.042 lbs so virtually a tie with the factory. The factory barrel is .53" at the end of the barrel and the GM is .64" The thicker part on the factory where the sight is attached is.62" and the end of a marlin 60 is .66" for reference points but end result is the GM is noticeably thicker than the factory. Visually the hole at the end of the barrel looks smaller on the GM over the factory but that could be my imagination. Crown looks better on the GM. All in all I have high hopes for the barrel and feel its a good start.
