Tell me exactly what kind of barrel you need. I might be able to help you out or point you in a good direction.

dsk,
I think a plain old GI .45. I have been told that a really good one can be had resonably.
I suppose that is what I need to replace the one in my Sistema. I have contacted J.L.D. by e-mail. I am hoping that the good things I have heard about their customer sewrvice will be passed on to me.

I wonder if it would be parkerized to match, close maybe?
Am I correct in my assumption that I do in fact need a GI barrel? I don't want to actually fit it like a match barrel.

Thanks!

I would appreciate it if you could explain to me what

You simply need a barrel that is mil-spec, or factory-spec from Colt. Sarco Inc. is another good source of barrels. Be careful of some sources though, as I recently bought a supposedly "mil-spec" barrel online that was so out of spec that you could actually shove a bullet down the bore! And the cartridge dropped down the chamber past the entry throat. Talk about out of spec!

I was corresponding with a guy who bought one of those "rotoforged" barrels from Sarco. Since they cost only $37, nobody should be surprised if they're not of very good quality, but from the guy's description, the relationship of the lower lugs and upper lugs was off by about 1/8"!!!! I still see Vietnam-era chrome-lined G.I. barrels at gunshows for $50.

Ouch! Oh well, there are a couple of those chrome-lined jobbies on the online auction sites currently. I can definitely recommend those. I put one in my worn-out Remington Rand, and the thing shoots like new now.

Try 45gunparts.com- I purchased a barrel and bushing to replace my military 1911's pitted one and it fits and shoots wonderfully for about $50 total.
