Default is this a recovered drill barrel?

Picture #6 of this link:

Is that where a weld was removed?

Almost looks like wood-contact pitting to me, which would still take it away from the "new out of wrap" category.

I second that, plus the "pitting" doesn't seem to make it all the way to the receiver, and if it had been welded, I'd expect to see the bulk of the "pitting" to be where the barrel and receiver make contact.

The small crater with what looks like a drop of flux in it??????? It is not located in the same area that drill barrels are welded. I don't know. Probably a good barrel. Good Shooting........

not a drill rifle barrel, looks like a drilled hole repair, and poor repark.

Has prick mark on ordnance bomb. Typical marking after proof firing a complete rifle. Not a new unused barrel but a take-off from a receiver.

Not necessarily so.
I have had several new in the wrap barrels that have had the prick mark.
And, after processing 100 drill rifles, this barrel has none of the drill indicators.
However, if the rifling seems to have some inconsistancy in the middle of the pipe, I could have been bent 30 and then straightened.
I haven't seen one like that, but a friend who has a barn full of 03's told me about barrels being demilled this way and then straightened by some arms house.

Regards, Ray

i have a few new in the grease wrap barrels with a punch mark as well, that doesnt meen its installed or fired.
the fact that it had reparked is suspect, if it is new, it will be short chambered.
