RPD question
 
Evening all.
A quick question for the RPD experts.
Is the barrel of the Chinese version type 56 rifled or smooth bore?
If it is rifled, how many grooves does it have please?

Thanks for that.
I checked it out earlier to no avail.

Without some serious Googling, all I can find is that it has right hand riflings that are 1 turn in 9.45 inches.

my guess is that it has to be rifled at the next gun show i will tell you
