All of the appeared checkering faults seen in the pic is due to a poor pic. There is nothing wrong with the checkering. I hope that will clear up your questions. If not please PM me your phone # and we will discuss any questions.
Along the vent rib from the end of the barrel to where the barrel meets the action is 25". It has been brought to my attention that is not the proper method to measure a barrel. I will remeasure that properly and repost.
