thought I’d disassemble to learn and see how they made them.

That’s pretty cool. Have you measured the rate of twist? Looks like a 45 Cal?

I was cleaning out the bore and it’s still too rough to get an accurate rate of twist - from the looks, close to nearly a turn in the 42” Bbl. So, it may be close to 1:48”.
36 cal measured at the muzzle.
