okay all,
i just spent the last hour trying relocate the info i found a week ago about a barrel that had a way of fitting it to the slide that involved a bushing or collar that tightens the fit inside the slide. is it something like an adjustable bull barrel? i don't recall the specs, but i do remember that this barrel was easily fitted into any slide with a few twists of the bushing/collar after it was in the slide. any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

don,
i pm'd you with a thank you. just in case you get this first though i wanted to restate it. i checked the two links you had, but perhaps it was not your intent to lead me to those because i could not find the barrel i found last week. i will look around some more though. thanks again.

duhhh

where is the newbie hat around here? you know, the one with the long point on the top:D ?

don, you were right as rain. did a search on "jarvis inc" then went to the barrel page and scrolled down....there it was :dope:

hopefully this wont happen very often. eating crow is not one of my favorite past times :)

take care.

I remember seeing that set up though I don't remember where. It is an adjustable collet bushing. Jarvis, I do believe, also makes a barrel where the barrel upper locking lug is ground small then sized flat spring steel collars are set on it until the proper fit is attained. Just FYI.

Found it!

That was a Jarvis Custom barrel. It is a bull barrel unit, drop in, standard or ramped configuration. Seems like just the ticket for a stock pin gun set up. Here is the link to the website.

Here is the web link to that particular page in the Jarvis site.

thanks and possible explanation on the steel bands?

mike,
thanks for the link! this is something i will be looking into. on the m1911.org site there was a statement regarding a special fitting device for the upper lugs where a tab is filed off. this sounds different from the bands you mentioned. so far i have read a lot about the fitting procedures of the lugs, hood, bushing, etc, so i have a book knowledge of the process, but i cannot picture the tabs john mentioned on the 1911.org site and the bands you mentioned don't ring a bell. any explanation would be sincerely appreciated. take care.

I sent a pm back to you about the link. I should have stated the link was to the page iwth the adjustable barrel bushing. My bad. I'll keep looking around for that other barrel also.
