That's kind of my point, I just thinking it's marketing BS. Anybody can put "match" on a barrel or even "match plus" or "super match." Unless there's an agreed upon standard, what does it mean?

In this case, I am trying to sell this gun on GunBroker and a prospective buyer asked "is this a match grade barrel?" As I wrote above, it says so on some other pistols I have, but I am wondering if this is stamped on the shroud or if it is/isn't Colt's version of "match grade," whatever that means.
Well, back in the '50s-'60s, Colt GCNM barrels had the NM stamp and were probably the first to have factory 'throating' to help feed the stubby 185-200gr swc match bullets.

And the surest way to improve the accuracy of a standard grade GM or Commander was to remove the factory barrel and install a Bar-Sto or Kart ''match grade'' barrel & bushing.
