How do I tell if I got the heavy barrel or the light barrel? I just got my XCR-L 7.62x39
(sorry for the thread resurrection but I figure the question fits here)
In the 7.62 due to the bore size I believe RA starts with a 'heavy' blank. Basically there is no 'heavy' barrel per say in 7.62 from RA.

There is a "light" profile, it's pretty evident when they're side by side. I don't think it's as thin as a 556 light profile but it is time than standard. I don't have a light to measure but I think the heavy barrel diameter is .750 all the way. There's some pics on here that Kermit posted way back.
Oh shoot, I just realized what sub-forum I was in.
Thx for the info regardless.
