The barrel twist rate on a Dommie? I've got tooth ache so can't sleep and was wondering like.
No sorry mate, i've got back ache though if that helps ?
Living the Dream ................. ish
Want any Tramadol bessy FT team mate?
Do you really want to know ??
Yep, I've peaked my interest. Care to share Pete?
can't you look down it and count?
I'll measure mine later & let you know
Oh yes ! They even sound strong
All three of them
If its your old one then none, you shot them all away
Unfortunately.......you'll always be a carbine
Now now Chris, we all know it's where you put the shot, not what kit you use that's important...
... actually I don't think that helps in this case
You've never complained sweetheart
Don't forget, us Walther shooters do it with precision & accuracy so don't need a long one whereas you Daystate shooters just spray everywhere
That's if they actually are even shooting something that's loaded
And then you hear so many stories about damaged ammo due to bent probes...
Just checked all three Walthers :
1) Std 19" FT Barrel, not quite a full turn so approx 1 turn in 20"
2) Walther barrel originally sold to Venom, Machined to 19", as above approx 1 turn in 20"
3) 22.25" Walther hunter barrel, 1 turn in 18"
These are only approx figures checked using a VFG rod & felt
How do you measure the twist rate? I have a barrel on my Mk3 that takes half the wind of a normal Daystate, We have come to the conclusion that it must be a different twist to a normal Mk3.
I put a thin black line down my VFG rod so when withdrawing it I could see exactly when it had done a complete turn. I then slide the rod down the breech & screwed a VFG felt tightly on the end & twisted the rod so that when the felt was just in the barrel the line was vertical. I marked the rod where is exited the barrel then withdraw, when the line came back to vertical I measured the distance from your muzzle to the original mark.
Not a perfect method but it seems reasonably accurate as each test was repeated 4 times & they all came out within .25"
hmm... i'll see what the 10m is when I have time...
