I heard someone mention a lapco rifled barrel? I haven't found it yet, point me in the right direction. I'm willing to check it out if it exists.
Which gun are you using? If it's the T9.1:

LAPCO produces the Tiberius Arms Rifled Barrels (for the T8.1 and the T9.1) (it's got both companies branding on them) and, they come in at .683". I know they can be found at Rockstar Tactical and I believe other places as well. They've recently started producing them in Autococker threads as well (I believe they do not have the Tiberius branding on them) but, I don't know if they are available for sale from third party vendors yet.

Hammerhead is seeing a lot of interest lately because they're rifling appears so far to be just as effective as the LAPCO/Tiberius pattern but, without the barrel fouling or, reduced velocity. Unfortunately, they do not produce an autococker, non-finned barrel. Personally, I'm hoping the .683 offering isn't the final offering from LAPCO. The anno/bore finish is amazing on their barrels.
