the barrel is a mcgowen #7 (i think) target contour. it tapers to 8.75" at the muzzle. Mcgowen has a speicial on there pistol barrels(tell them it's a savage pistol large shank) up to 17" long. i went with the 17" barrel. my gun with everything on it including the bipod is 10.5 lbs. and it is 31" long tip to tip. very hard to find a holster for her!!!!
zuba is right ! these action's come from the factory as actions only. they have never been assembled as a rifle. it is a felony to take a rifle action and make it into a pistol. just like the encore frame. jim at northland supply can give you more info.
