    Hard to say without more info than just a picture.

    Looks to be an A1 "slick side" 20" pencil barrel, most likely 1-12 twist, with no charging handle or BCG.

    Yeah...maybe. Depends on the condition of the bore more than anything.

    Impossible to judge from a computer.

    Well damn. I saw it, did quick google search and couldn't find much. Hope it turns out good. If worse came to worse, could I get rid of it for $200?

    Got to love Ed's. Not the cheapest place around but damned good service.
