By my standards it's shot out but I require sub-MOA performance and anything else gets tossed. By everyone else's standards it's just a take-off barrel. When pulled it was occasionally starting to put 5 shot groups of 1" with my handloads and the throat has gotten pretty long. If you can tolerate a 1" group then this is actually a pretty good barrel. Has about 3500 rounds down the pipe, 1K of which were russian made steel case. Finish is rubbed off on part of it where it slipped in the barrel vise during removal. It's got probably 3000 rounds left in it for non-match-grade use like hunting, plinking, etc... Shipping is from norcal. Price is the cost of shipping it plus whatever gratuity you'd like to drop on me. Payment by paypal or money order. Local pick-up is ok for those in the SanFran area. 9 twist, 5.56x45mm/.223 rem chamber, medium-bull, fluted.
