Hi folks-

Found this ROK IBM at a local GS today and grabbed it cheap. I'm sure it'll need a new barrel as it literally swallows a bullet at the muzzle. Hopefully it'll hit a pie plate at 25 yards! LOL. Enjoy the pics, thank you.

Don't bet on it being inaccurate. Many carbines with badly worn muzzles were counterbored to restore accuracy. Those barrels swallow muzzle gauges, but are often just as accurate as barrels with muzzle wear readings of 2 or 3.

Smokpole,

Thank you for your reply. There's about 1/16" barely visible using a USGI .30-06 round
inserted at the muzzle. It may surprise me, as you said...

I do not see any visible signs of it being counter bored.

For $600.00 I'm not complaining!

great!  I would have snatched it up too, at that price!   I’m always looking for a nice one, just in case.
