Cheers for the crit. Ive run out of time so I cannot tweak the barrel anymore

As for the rifeling, I used a cylinder for the barrel, detached as a clone the inside and isolated that selection. Selected a horizontal edge all the way around the diameter of the cylinder and did a loop select. Extruded the selected edges by a small amount in height and width. Selected the newly extruded edge(s) and chamfered those to make a square cross-section. Added a tessalation modifier set to faces, and upped the interation by 1 setting. Added a twist modifier and upped the spinner until I was satisfied.

That was it really, really quick and simple, and because I used already existing geometry (as I do all the time) it was exactly the right size and shape I needed.
Makes for a nice quick workflow.
