Hello. I just got my bar sto 9mm bull barrel and caspian slide in today. The slide ID measured .699 and the barrel OD measured .693. I understand the need for clearance but this seems loose to me. I won't know how tight the lockup is until I fit the hood but i won't be able to return the barrel at that point. I would prefer a tighter fit that I can turn down but the barrel I have may be great. I have fit standard and cone barrels but never a bull barrel. Should I go for it or send this barrel back? Thanks for reading.

With a Barsto the very first thing I would do is check the
horizontal spacing of the upper lugs.
Not every barrel maker manufactures to original specs.
