Default GMB .45 cal barrel twist

Tried calling GMB, there closed on fridays. there site states the twist on the .45 cal barrels are 1:30 and it also says 1:28 lol. anyone know for sure what it is.i want to buy on for the renegade stock i have, instead of buying another whole rifle.also confusing are the 15/16 barrels, which they state they make, but they are not shown.. GMB needs someone to clean up there web page.. thanks Ray

The stainless steel one I have that fits my Renegade said 1-28 on the box. It is a great shooter. I even scoped it and threw a 4x32 Simmons scope on it. Really a good shooting rig.

My 45 cal GM barrel for for both my renegade and hawken are 1:28. If you want to shoot heavy conicals the sharpshooter barrel is a 1:24 twist and the most accurate drop in barrel, but I don't think you can get it without the malcolm scope and only for the Hawken. The 15/16 across the flats is for the hawken and the 1" across the flats is for the renegade . I still think if you want to shoot lighter conicals the Lyman is one of the best.
The 1:28 barrel for the renegade will shoot the 255 gr conicals. I haven't tried anything heavier in them.

The box my .45 blue LRH came in said 1:30, as did the invoice. I've never checked it.

See I think it is 1-30 also, because they also will not at this time change the Knight GM barrels. I think they are well locked in on the 1/30 in a 45 barrel.

That;s what i was thinking also Mike. have you seen there site lol, the info on the .45 cal replacement barrels is confusing to say the least. leaves one not knowing if the .45 barrels are 1:28 or 1:30..
