What does a barrel bulge look like on a mini14? Is this one

Look at the barrel. About halfway between the gas block and the muzzle there's something. Is that a bulge? I've never seen a rifle with a bulged barrel so I don't know.

Thats normal on the old pencil barrels. The barrel actually steps down there

That is a nice factory folder you have! It is valued at 2x the norm mini value because it has that stock.
