I did wonder that myself. I read that some folks (Sarco) altered 2 groove barrels to 4 groove, but that those could usually be distinguished by irregular spacing of the lands and grooves. These looked pretty regular, but maybe I donít know what to look for.

That's a 2-groove barrel. Nice rifle. If it were mine, I'd strip it completely and give it a scrub down, cause she looks a little grimey. Rem oil, brass and nylon brushes are my go to. Denatured alcohol for the dried, caked on stuff.

Look closer. That's a 4-groove barrel.

There's certainly some scrubbing in this one's future.

Sorry about the confusion over the grooves, I don't know for sure what I'm looking at. If it is a two groove I know that would fit better with the date. I was worried it might be one of the altered barrels I've been reading about (trying to figure out if 4 groove could be correct).

ETA oops, posted before noticing Mr. Beard's response!

Guess I'm back to square one - I'll have to take a closer look at it. Fingers crossed that it hasn't been messed with. Does anyone else out there have an honest 12-43 4-groove, or am I almost certainly looking at a Sarco specimen?

OK, maybe the photos being a little blurred threw me off.

Tried again to get some decent bore photos. This is about the limit of my abilities, Iím afraid. Let me know if the pics show up and what yíall think, if the photos permit any interpretation:
