these were the best parker hale could make as they were used in british target rifles to represent England. Most of these were never used due to receiver issues and are new or like new. I have used these to build multiple 98's and all shot stellar. free bump for a nice nice part good luck with your sale

Barrel threads are standard Mauser 98 Large Ring i.e. 1.10" OD 12V TPI, threaded shank is 0.625" long. I have test-fit this barrel into at least a half dozen different Mauser 98 Large Ring receivers, and it screws into all of them smoothly.

No idea if the threads are cut with a 55-degree or a 60-degree pitch, and have no way to measure it. IMHO that issue has been beat to death over the years, and from my experience with Mausers is irrelevant in practice.
