    I called Bar-Sto today to order a replacement barrel for my 9 Tac. I was waiting for them to say "it'll take a few months". I lucked out and someone just canceled their order and one was available for immediate shipment. I told them to send it as-is oversized or what they call "Match Target". Having them make it semi drop-in would actually delay it a week so they could machine it down to size.

    I won't be fitting the barrel myself but what is involved with fitting a Bar-Sto? Does the chamber need to be reamed? What else needs to be trimmed?

    I have some photos around of what I had to do. No chamber reaming. It helped to have a milling machine for one of the steps. I can send you the info.

    I have no clue if what I saw was typical or not. But it is a damn nice barrel!

    Have Irv send a copy of his video with the order that will help a lot. I do them all the time with a simple hand file. Good luck.

    There is a video on Old Schools' web site that shows
    how to fit an EFK barrel.

    I am sure that the principal is the same.

    Picked up the barrel today at my local UPS station. I missed delivery yesterday. Talk about not being able to sleep! :p

    She's beautiful. Now I need to get my slide back from XD-HS2000 so I can have it professionally fit. Hurry James!!
