That's a good deal. I paid 40 bucks a piece for 2 colt 9x23 mags and then 25 bucks a piece for two more when I found a better deal. That makes the barrel only 30 bucks. If I hadn't already pissed a bunch of money away on other items I'd definitely bid on it.

Hate to be a pain in the ass. But you might ought e-mail whoever is selling that barrel and find out if it came out of an enhanced colt or a 1991 colt as the hood is narrower on an enhanced.

Slap me for not knowing for sure but I thought I had heard 1991's too. Where did you find out only 500. If there are only 500 I am damn sure gonna keep mine.

Is it possible that 500 guns slide marked 9x23 were made? The balance of whats out there are the are the .38 supers that came with a second barrel in 9x23. I had one of these sets in blue enhanced, and sold the gun and retained the 9x23 barrel/spring assm.. I have since installed that barrel in a bright stainless enhanced .38 super. I need additional mags, as I only have one. I've got a new Colt stainless .40 cal mag to trade for a 9x23. Fat chance eh?

Mine says -9 x 23 WIN- on the barrel. Nothing on the slide. It does say 01923E on the box though. Also Wayne Kenney owner of Guns and Things 1008 Calle Katarina
Santa Fe, NM 87505 ph 505-471-0917 [email protected] sold me the Colt 9x23 mags still new in the wrap for 25.00. He told it was ok to publicly refer him here if anyone else needed some. As you probably already know 38super mags are the same thing just not stamped 9x23 on the base plate.

The old popeyes mind is goin. Of course there's no calibre mark on the slide. I do remmember Colts shipped in 9x23 with no second barrel (I think). I just want some blue 9x23 mags to keep calibres apart as my .38 supers are all stainless. OOOOOPS.......time for my shock therapy

I don't think any of the enhanced slides are marked for caliber in 9x23, 38 super, or 9mm (same for 1991s I THINK).

The only way to know for sure if your 9x23 started life as a 9x23 is to research the serial #. All of these barrels that are popping up may be factory stock that they let loose after deciding not to build the things anymore.

I think the 1991 has only been made in 45, 9mm, 38 super, AND (believe it or not) 10mm but I think the 10mm had a name like Delta 10 or something like that.

Not sure if they are "enhanced" or not but Sarco www.sarcoinc.com has 9mm barrels for only $45.00. I have one of their 7" Super barrels in a Super Elite and it is excellent. I have two friends with both 9mm and Super barrels and for the price they love them. My 7" also shoots 9x23 with so far 100% reliability...Bob
