I came across this consignment item today and just couldn't pass it up. Upper measures 8.5" and looks almost new. I guess it's a "GREATER THAN EIGHT". I don't how long it's been since Tactical Solutions sold a barrel that long. Based on the grips, trigger and the contents of the box that came with it, I suspect that the frame donner was an early Competition Target Model. LGS said that the seller thought he had the original upper somewhere. I told them to let me know if he found it.
