    Just picked up one of these for the wife and was wondering if anyone here has any opinions on these rifles.
    From the barrel code it's a 1984 model any idea of the twist?, I have misplaced my rod or I would have checked it.
    Thanks, Frank

    Frank, I think you will find it to be a 1-14 twist. Those rifles are beautiful. I had one in 308 years ago, and it would drive tacks all day. Haven't seen one of those in a while, or else I would own it!!! Have fun!
