SIG 1911 barrel
you 1911 builders that want a very high end 1911 barrel for modest $$ should check out these sig 1911 barrels that numrich is selling for $74.
i just got one today and checked it out. barrel is polished inside and out with a granite like finish on the hood. it is one piece stainless steel 5" long.
chamber checks out perfect.
it is a perfect drop in fit im my CO arms caspain/foster 1911.
it won't go in the GI slides without some cutting-- it is going to be perfect for that SA slide i am a thinking. i think these are made by storm lake.
not a bad deal as any NIB barrel with any kind of name is going to run $100-$140+ at least.
i don't know how many of these numrich has in stock or if they can get anymore when they sell out.
only about $25-$30 more than the budget barrels and much better looking--LOL
Gunco Good ole boy
remember to call in that that little discount --i think i got about $4 off the shipping on mine--
call their sales line and get up to $4.99 off shipping.
i haven't fired the sig barrel yet. i just now got time to mess with it a little.
the pin was a little tight and i used a colt link of standard size.
i put it in the co-arms with the foster frame and slide and she fit beautifully. hell i think it might be a better fit than the hand fitted ed brown that was in there.
the slide feels like it is on oiled bearings and it licks up tight as a drum.
i haven't had time to test fire it yet--so far the sig barrel is looking like a great deal.
if it shoots like it fits and looks -- it is going to be the best low buck barrel out there.

but yea if the one i got shoots like it looks it should be a winner. the bad news is i may have to build another 1911 just to give it a home!--LOL
i thought i read somewhere that sigs barrels for their 1911 were made by storm lake.
well i have a storm lake 1911 barrel that i put in my first 1911 build years ago, back when storm lake barrels were $99.
anyway this barrel don't look at all like it or the ed brown in the COA 1911.
it could be a kart for all i know --whoever made the barrel it looks to be a top of the line piece --for $79 shipped in inflated 2012 dollars --it is a steal--LOL
shot it a little yesterday only about 30 rounds to see if there any feeding issues. it seemed to feed JHPs fine and as seemed as accurate as the ed brown. very good for a drop in barrel fit. it also seems more accurate with the tula ammo than my other 45s--
