I'd think twice about getting a rifle from Dick's, considering how they pulled all the EBR's. That's just me.

I wrote them explaining how their action was tantamount to an admission of guilt as well as a profoundly poor business decision.

Now before I get a nasty gram from a moderator I APOLOGIZE TO OP for the OT rant.

Here is a possible answer to your question:

Per Sniper Central this rifle has: 1:12 RH twist
The blood runs free, the rain turns red, give me the wine, you keep the bread.

I would also avoid Dick's.
$0 of an NRA membership goes to legislative action or court battles. Not a dime. Only money contributed to the NRA-ILA or NRA-PVF. Second Amendment Foundation is a solid alternative.

I oft times wonder why folks wanting to know what twist a factory barrel has asking on-line questions don't just go to the firearm company's web site and check it out.
