Try to decide if it a D14 or a B175.

What do you think.175-ba.jpg175-b.jpg

Those transfer ports are quite big I'm gonna say d14 but I could be wrong 😁

What's 7/16 in mm again?

Hi all...bought a Bantam Barrell described as a B175 barrel on ebay...seller assured me its a B175.

The ebay pics were not the best.

It came today...though I would know right away but I'm still not sure.

Without taking the head of mine to check the ports what the best way to tell.

Nick.

I took a rubbing of the inside of the barrel off my D14 while I had it in bits recently. Note the scale bar so you can work out the size and position of the ports.

Ringting...compared these rubbing to my new spare barrel...similar but not the same...thank you...these confirm I have a genuine B175 Barrel.

Many thanks for doing that for me...brilliant.

Nick.

You're very welcome Nick. It would be good to have a scaled rubbing of a B175 barrel on here as well, for general comparison. Would be interesting to super-impose the two images.

If I can figure out how you did it so accurately I will have a go.
