    If all else fails mark a cleaning rod and measure the distance it takes to make one complete revolution. ex. 1 rev. in 9" this should get you close. It doesn't say on Remingtons website?

    I think they are 9 1/4. You can check it by using a solid rod with a patch. Mark the rod so you can tell when you get 360 degrees rotation and mark the distance traveled in inches for twist rate......Rich
