Does a match barrel improve accuracy much in a HP? Or is it simply to improve the shootablility of more types of ammo? I've heard that fitting a match barrel doesn't improve accuracy dramatically like it does in a 1911. True?

I've had Bar-sto barrels and did not see any significant overall improvement in accuracy. There are two reasons to buy a Bar-sto barrel for a hi-power:

1. It's cool to see "Bar-sto" peeking out at you.
2. Match barrels from Bar-sto are cheaper than Browning factory barrels.:hrm:

hoser, It really depends on the accuracy of your factory barrel, and there is some difference in the factory barrels. I had one not too long ago that didn't want to shoot, and it slugged at .359 - not too conducive to good groups. Bar-Sto's add says their barrels will cut your group size in half, but I think that's kind of a rule of thumb.
