Hey VZ or anyone else - I'm almost ready for the barrel and wonder about this one:
MidwayUSA - Douglas Premium Pistol Barrel Blank 45 Caliber Centerfire Medium Basic 1.200" Diameter Rough Turned 1 in 16" Twist 27-1/2" Chrome Moly in the White
It is $150 and 27" long... currently backordered
Any other good deals on 45 barrels?
Numrich has some pistol-sized barrels but not much else... I am going to build mine at about 14-16" and with a muzzle brake, it should be just about right. Problem is that I'm only finding pistol-sized barrels. That 27" barrel is obviously going to make a nice 16" barrel, then what do I do with the other half? Make a matching pistol?
I'd like to find even a 12" barrel... I can live with a 4" muzzle brake.
