    I just ordered one of these. Does anyone know the number of rifleing groves or lands in the barrel? I know the typical number is 5 but I have heard that they make some military and law enforcement with 3 for less drag. Thanks for your input.

    I think the 5 that you are referring to is the 5R style of rifling that remington uses in their rifles.
