aftermarket barrels

Hi,
I'm trying to determine if my 03' sporter has a 03' barrel or a Shilen aftermarket barrel on it.

Do aftermarket barrel have that tapered chamber face or are they flat?

For a Springfield or 1917 US Enfield, they would be coned like a military barrel. Normally, anyway. Some gunsmiths have been known to dispense with that step when fitting a new barrel.
