    Is it from the chamber + barrel or just after the chamber?
     
  2. From the bolt face to the muzzle.

    From the bolt face to the muzzle when the bolt is in battery and the hammer is cocked.

    Not necessarily the muzzle, if you have a permanently attached FH or other device on the front of the barrel, they measure to the "muzzle" of the device.
     
  5. Of course, I figured the question was mainly pertaining where the measurement started on the breech end.

    the easiest way is to drop a wooden dowel down the barrel with the bolt closed. mark where it sticks out and measure.


    or just post a pic. im sure some of us can recognize barrel length :o

    I think you would be the best you most likely have pictures of SBR's posted all over your room like porn. You can look but you can't touch :mamoru:.
