    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 :D

    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:p

    That's if they actually are even shooting something that's loaded :rolleyes:

    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.

    Any ideas?

    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"
