Thanks Jeremy.
Do you know what the PP, PI and HS stands for?
Is the HS for head space?

What is noticeably different though is the sleeve and/or the receiver end of the barrel. The sleeve on all of the Mann barrels I have seen extends all the way to the receiver and extends around a step on the end of the barrel. On your barrel, the sleeve stops well short of the receiver. Can you tell if there is a step in the barrel at that point, or has the sleeve just been cut down?

I'm not sure what your referring to. It seems to me to be the same as the photo on the CMP rifle sales page. Here is probably the best photo that I have of the receiver end of the barrel. It has a large diameter stepped down to a smaller diameter and then stepped down to the same size 1.25" size of the main barrel diameter. I think what you may see is the difference between actual original stock and the full stock that I put on it. The original stock was cut off at the face of the receiver, the stock I put on it is cut off at the just behind the first step in the barrel.

Thanks, Darrell

I see, that it is the same as the sales page. The two I have, and all of them that I have seen in the stores look like this picture (not mine but a picture I saved).

Thanks ODCMP.
I love this hobby
Even when only a few hundred are made, there are so many different configurations and so much to learn.

I will probably send my $25 to the CMP research department. I would like to verify that it came from them and get any documentation they may have concerning this particular Mann Accuracy Device.

I think it is going to be a great bench shooter.

I bet you get a hit. I'd never seen one before the CMP had them.
