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.
The cocker threaded Lapco barrel is still Tiberius branded. I will dig it out of the truck and get some measurements and pictures tonight.

In that case, I think you have two, off the shelf rifled barrels available to you- A Hammerhead with a cocker-threaded fin (the main bore would be .688") or the LAPCO/Tiberius in .683

Thanks uv_halo. And the flounder, thanks for the pm. So bore size, reading all the input so far, tighter isn't necessarily better?

That's the best the data tells us so far.

Tighter doesn't gain you accuracy - but it does lose efficiency. So, yes, you are correct.

Has anyone had an opportunity to compare the .689 Milsig Marksman rifled barrel?

No. I forgot about it prior to testing but, given the published specs for it, I wouldn't expect it to perform any differently than the hammerhead given they are only .001" different in bore.

Except that it is a single piece barrel, correct?
