News to me if they changed it to 16. Where did you see this? I thought
they were around the 1-38 twist range.

Start a ball at the muzzle and with a marked rotating ram rod, push the ball through the bore, count the twist rate yourself to be sure. The only way I know of without taking the word of someone else.
