    I would hope that's it's not .068" before reducing the length from 16"

    Yeah, that's supposed to be more .061 -.064, IIRC.

    Yes, I would expect measurements between .062-.063" in a TDP barrel. I wish there was more of a variety of .058" and smaller ported barrels barrels for specific reasons.

    Didn't LMT used to make some closer to that a while back?

    They are.

    My LMT 10.5 is .071 if I recall correctly. Their 14.5s are around .063. I know LMT follows with the same spec as Colt, which is .063 for 14 and 16 inch.

    This is what I've heard as well, I recently purchased a Lothar-Walther stainless that has been melonite treated. The barrel extension was done separately from the barrel to prevent any salt from getting trapped between the barrel and barrel extension, as it could lead to corrosion issues. It was then shipped back to Lothar-Walther to have the gas port drilled
