Mini-30 Tactical barrel dimensions

Here is another review by our guy (Tokarev) on the Ruger forum for those of you who may have missed it: My NEW Tac-30 - Ruger Forum

And for anyone interested, some pictures of the new Mini-30 Tactical barrel profile and dimensions:

Interesting...That Tactical Mini-30 barrel has the same outside dimensions as the Tactical Mini-14...just a different bore. Seems like an efficient production plan by Ruger...

What I found interesting was that the thinner portion of the barrel, under the handguard, was the same as my pre-2005 Mini-30.

Must have saved costs by not having to alter the dimensions of the gas block or slide, I'm guessing.

What is the outside diameter of the barrel on the Mini-14 Tactical? The Tac30 barrel is .782" but does not taper down like the Tac14 so I'm curious what the dimension is for the 14 from the point beyond the gas block.

he needs to zero his caliper. its .760
yup, the mini 30 tact doesnt taper, and thats why is so awesome

although.. the target I think has a barrel that size. Some weird mix up?
