a while back somebody asked about ROTO 1911 barrels.
i am going to do a follow up on them when my 7" barrel arrives.
presently i don't have a ROTO barrel -- i do have a unmarked barrel that was supposed to be surplus that i got from numrich a few years ago.
i sort of suspect it might be a roto or swenson.
this barrel looks and functions fine but it did require fitting. it seems to be at least USGI type accurate. it is a one piece barrel. the exterior of the barrel looks a little rough --like it was not fully polished before they put the finish on it, it does run OK though. --
for a long time rotos were thought to be two piece.
looking around over at 1911.org there is a guy there that thinks very highly of the ROTOs and he swears that at least all the newer rotos are one piece barrels. but i do get some bad advice from 1911.com from time to time!!--LOL--
i am beginning to think ROTOs ain't all THAT bad--
it will be interesting to see how the 7" roto holds up to the 6" storm lake--
