    A few trade offers, one of which I’m considering. I would really prefer to sell it but no buyers yet.

    What is the twist rate? And how long is the barrel?

    Model 54 in 260 has a 1:8 twist 24-inch barrel; mine isn't threaded, though. Outstanding rifle.

    Edit: Older production might have a 22-inch barrel; I'll have to check mine.

    Sorry for the delay. Legionnaire is correct. 24” long barrel with a 1-8” twist.

    How does it shoot? Handloads or factory? Any pics of groups?

    Sorry, don’t have any group pictures and haven’t tried any factory ammo. I worked up a load with a suppressor on it with 123gr Hornady Amax that was shooting about 1/2 MOA. The same load would only do about 1 MOA without the suppressor which didn’t bother me since I basically never shoot without a suppressor.
