Sionics Patrol 1 Question

**(I am not looking to start a debate on .223 vs 5.56!!)**
Recently picked up a Sionics Patrol 1 rifle from my LGS. Until recently I have only fired .223 out of it. I was installing some furniture to the carbine today, and thought I would take a peek at the barrel and see what is stamped on it. To my amazement, there was absolutely no markings on the barrel. I called up the LGS to ask what the actual caliber is, and they said it was 5.56 (woohoo!). I am concerned that the salesman is getting the receiver stamp (says 5.56) mixed up, and was hoping someone else on these forums could verify the caliber. Thanks for your time!

God gave you a soul.
Your parents, a body.
Your country, a rifle.

Keep all of them clean.
