    Does my Rem 700 5R have an M24 barrel?

    Short answer- NO, despite what you'll read. 5R is a rifling profile. Mike Rock made the barrels on the first run of M24s before Remington started doing them. The 700 5R rifles you'll see for sale have the 5R rifling, BUT, they have a thinner barrel profile than the M24. The commercial 5R rifles have a thinner Remington Varmint profile, the M24s have what is known as a M24/M40 profile similar to a Shilen #7.

        Yes. Selling not raffing. In their defense they had no idea what they were selling or what an m24 actually was. They were less than gracious when I pointed that out but they did revise the ad.

              Like I said, I don't think they knew what they were selling. They did correct the ad after they were called to task. I would let them slide on it.

                  This was the most dead on balls accurate rifle I've ever owned. I totally miss it.
