    I have a Kimber ProCarryII, my only Kimber. I really like the pistol but am curious as to why the barrel is offset. It is my only Bull barrel 1911. I do have other style pistols with bull barrel and they are all concentric. I was wanting to put a keyed recoil bushing in it. Dont think that is an...

    What are the pros & cons to sleeved barrels (i.e. NH Bob Marvels)? How does a sleeved barrel differ from a traditional bull barrel?

    I have a Staccato C with a regular DLC barrel. I would like to have a threaded barrel for it. Would the C2 DLC threaded barrel work? I think the C barrel and the C2 barrel are the same, but I’m not positive. Are they? Will Staccato sell me just a C2 DLC threaded barrel? Thanks for the help.

    I received my ordered Nighthawk Shadowhawk Long Slide 10mm which is great, but I want a threaded barrel for it. Nighthawk doesn’t offer their own 10mm 6” match threaded barrel. I’d like your recommendations on the best (accuracy, quality, etc) barrel manufacturer to get a Wilson/Nowlin ramped 6”...

    Does Staccato sell just their barrels? I see a Bull Barrel Crowning Service and a DLC Coating Service, but I don’t see anywhere to buy an actual barrel. I have a Staccato C and was hoping to buy a C2 DLC threaded barrel for my C. Since the C and the C2 both have a 3.9-inch bull barrel, it...

    So I’m cleaning both of my 1911s and noticed that both barrels have a considerable amount of buildup on the opposite edge of the rifling. After every range trip, I soak with Hoppes foaming bore cleaner and follow with Hoppes 9 and a brass brush. Even after 3 sets of passes with the brush and...

    How big a deal is it to get a second barrel for a high-end 1911 (Wilson, Baer, NHC, etc.) ? I have my eye on a nice 1911 but it has a threaded barrel and I’d prefer one that is not. I’ve heard a lot about high-end 1911’s have a lot of hand fitting that occurs so don’t know what is involved in...

    Been doing some research on barrels for a potential custom build. Was looking at KKM and noted they tout their button rifling process as superior to broach but because it’s more labor intensive and more precise. Then I noted Ed Brown barrels claimed “Our barrels are rifled by precision...

    Was cleaning a 38 Super and noticed this on the barrel. It looks bent, though can’t really tell how it would have happened, at least in the course of fire. Not the best pics, but note the blue circled areas... I took apart another gun as I’ve never noticed this before. Didn’t see any issues...

    I only know of them because of Springfield. But I believe they stopped using them due to reliability issues. Whenever I see some custom gun wizard/gunsmith, they seem to use Kart or barsto. If Les Baer accuracy is so good, why don't people get barrels from them? Or do they use Kart or...

    Hey folks, looking for someone who'd be willing to finish ream and throat the barrel on a new 1911 I'm picking up today. I don't have a finish reamer or a dremel and I've also never used either of them before so I'd rather not screw something up. Would be happy to pay via paypal F&F, venmo, or...

    Pardon the dumb question but of the two Colts I've had, both have what appear to be pretty short gaps between the upper edge of the feed ramp and the barrel throat. I stuck a Springfield barrel on the frame just to see what kind of gap it would show and it looked totally normal, around 1/32". Is...

    I have a old llama with the 4.25inch barrel that I acquired as parr’s in a bag. There are threaded holes in the slide and the barrel bushing that hold the bushing in place. Has anyone ever seen a system like this and any idea where to find replacement set screws?

    So I got my new Colt 1911 9mm Combat Elite Defender 3”. Can someone tell me if these marks on the barrel seem like normal lathe or machining marks on a brand new weapon from Colt? I put 100 rounds through it this weekend and it performed amazingly. Only 1 double feed.
