I need some help choosing the right barrel for my STI gun frame 45 cal. NON-ramped. Do I have to get a Non-ramped barrel too? What is best for accuracy in competition and fastest, a gun with a non-ramped barrel or just a regular with a ramped? Also wich brand of barrels of the 1911 45 cal. 5.0 long do you guys recommend ?

If the frame is not cut for a ramped barrel you wil have to use a non-ramped barrel. If you want to use a ramped barrel, the frame will have to be milled for the type of barrel ramp you choose. IMHO, speed and accuracy are not effected by whether a barrel is or isn't ramped. As for which one, I have found that any brand name aftermarket barrel will outshoot the average shooter.

If its ramped already, any match ramped barrel with a Wilson/Nowlin ramp will work.

If its not ramped, go with a Kart.

Best advice is to contact a gunsmith and see what he wants/likes to use.
