What barrel do I have?

I pulled the barrel and action from my McMillan M1A stock and found out that the Fulton action FA0019X has a rear lug and no front lug, the barrel has the nimber 134 stamped near the front of the receiver (on the bottom going left to right) Has the word CORCOHAN stamped on the bottom going rear to front. The barrel is a 22" stainless steel and chambered in 308. If anyone has an idea of what the barrel maker is - please share. I just want a base line of what I have. I have not removed the hand guard, there may be more info under it.

My guess is the barrel was installed by Ken Corcoran, a retired Army Chief Warrant Officer and former AMU armorer.

Well I received a call from Mr. Ken Corcoran and he was very informative. He did in fact build my M14, with a Douglass barrel (1-10 twist). He also had some suggestions on load data. Thanks to all that replied - this is a great forum and I plan on spending alot of time here learning about the M14 and the different matches. I haven't heard of any competion in Utah - however I just started to look.
