Look through any parts catalog and you will find more barrel makers than you would
have thought possible. The quality and durability of your barrel are what you will
notice most about your gun in the long run. Bar-Sto barrels have been in more bullseye,
military match, and (until lately) more IPSC guns than all other makes combined. The reason
is simple: They are the very best. Like anyone with a superior product, they often have
a long backlog, so if you want one be prepared to wait. Lack of availability and the cost
are why some other smiths have jobbed out their barrels. There are a few other barrels
I will install that will shoot as good as the Bar-Sto, but given the choice for my
own gun, I would choose the original stainless match Bar-Sto.
