Hello, I am looking at the possibility of using an SPS varmint or tactical as a platform to build a match rifle.

I need to know about the barrel...is it a perfect cylinder at the last couple inches of the muzzle end (bull barrel cylinder) or is it tapered? The reason I ask is that front sights (irons) clamp on, but they only clamp on well to a cylinder, not a tapered barrel.

Please say whether you have the tactical or varmint in your response. Thanks!

Both the SPS Tactical and the SPS Varmint are tapered to some degree. The Tac is going to be less tapered because the barrel is shorter where are the Varmint being a 26 inch barrel will have more taper.


The end of my SPS Tac is .850 where as the SPS varmint should be .820
