MKIII tapered target

Came across one at my LGS and it followed me home. According to the s/n it is a 2010 production. I understand some were 6 7/8 and then 6 inch. How do you measure barrel length? The clerk said from the muzzle to the first scope base screw, 6", but the shop owner thought it was longer. And when we're these discontinued? I have a couple of bull barrel MK'S but this was just plain, well, neat.

You measure from the bolt face (closed) to the end of the muzzle.

This video explains it well:

That's what I figured

I'll have to drop a rod down bore.

congrats on your find, i came across mine at a local store a few years ago when they were discontinued. I had always wanted one and bought it on first sight even though I was going to but a bull barrel. Mine was made 10-8-10.
