I am not an expert, but I personally don't think that there is much difference between 42 and 44in. Deff do with a swamped, the balance is so much better. I ordered one with a 42in colerain barrel

Mine are 44" swamped Rice barrels in a C weight---Lancaster (J. Dickert) style. 42" is plenty of length but the 2 extra inches looks good---get the 42! JMHO

I HOPE you can get that barrel.It is my understanding thet Green Mountain is NO LONGER going to make ANY muzzy barrels.PERIOD!TOTW got about 10 58cal TC drop in barrels and they were sold in 2 days.TOTW is all but cleaned out as news spread fast.

Guy called Green Mt. and they said no more,no plans to restart,the end of muzzy barrels!They have completely cleaned their shelves of muzzy barrels.I have been calling every Green Mt. dist. I can think of with nothing but dead ends.They have Goverment contracts on other barrels and we muzzy shooters have fallen by the way side.
My 58 cal GM barrel with a 1:70 twist in a 1" Hawken stock is just a dream.

If you can`t get Green Mountain ask for a Rice or Collerain. Green Mountain is more worried about their military contracts than regular folkes anymore
Was Gene nice to you? Every time I was ever in there he was very grumpy? Is that just normal for him
