Default Douglass Air Gauged bbl

Does anyone know I a "Douglass Air Gauged" barrel is GI contour like a Criterion barrel?
Mostly I want to know if a Garand with the Douglass barrel is Garand Match legal.

Any help would be appreciated as a friend has one to sell.

You'd have to look at it. Douglas made both contours.

PS: match (heavy) contour will be immediately obvious.

Thanks Skeet6, I will ask to compare it with an SA barrel and Criterion Barrel to see if it is different.

I compared the Douglass barreled Garand with a Garand with an SA barrel.
I don't see any difference in barrel shape or thickness with both rifles taken out of their stocks.
The Douglass barrel seems to be GI contour, unless there's some other way of comparing them. Certainly no obvious difference from the SA barrel.
As Skeet6 said, Douglass made both contours and this one must not be a heavy barrel.
That's good, because I want a Garand Match legal shooter.
Does anyone have any further insight beyond looking at what's visible when out of the stock?

If it looks like your other ones, you are good to go.
As I mentioned above, the difference is plainly obvious to anyone. Follow the link below for a comparative picture between the two.

Thanks Mike B./Skeet6. The Douglas barrel looks like my other SA barrels viewed with the buttstock off.
The website you provided is perfect except I think those barrels are viewed from the side.
I didn't take the handguard off. I suppose I'll do that very carefully since it isn't my rifle yet.
I'll look at them again and also see if the handguard has any wood removed inside.

I took the rear handguard off and this Douglass barrel is NOT G.I. contour. Skeet 6/Mike B., your pictures tell the story. This barrel isn't Garand match legal.

Not legal for "as issued"
