I bought this with the intention of using it for cheap target practice. I have several barrels for my contender but the 22LR would be less expensive for practice. Well as it would be my business has picked up to where I don’t have any time. Very shiny black no scratches but a lot of glare not a scratch on it I promise. I know the pictures look like it is scratched but not. The item “Thompson Center Contender 10 Blued 22LR Bull Barrel 22 LR Never fired” is in sale since Monday, September 30, 2019.
