NATIONAL MATCH (FITTING REQUIRED) BARRELS:
1911 Barrels ordered as fitting required, otherwise known as National Match, are left over sized in the hood and link lugs. For this reason, we do not install the link & pin (if ordered) as the link lugs are cut to fit with the link & pin uninstalled. All drop in barrels that are ordered with the link & pin will be shipped with the link & pin installed.
BARREL THREADING INFORMATION:
We thread barrels only after the barrel has been ordered and approximately every 2-3 weeks. Barrels are threaded with thread information given us by the purchaser. Once the barrel has been threaded, it cannot be changed or canceled. Barrel caliber/threading specs listed under “threading options” include common threads used for suppressors and other barrel attachments. If unsure of thread, contact the manufacturer of your barrel attachment or contact us at (406) 625-2562. All threaded barrels ship with one thread protector at no charge (1/2-32, 1/2-36 excluded).
As of 5/17/2022, all calibers except .40 S&W/10MM barrels are in stock. We will be doing our best to keep lead times at approximately 3-4 weeks for stainless “in stock” barrels. Please see information below for lead times for PVD coatings.
Any barrel ordered with a compensator thread requires the compensator to be sent in. Compensator threads include .575-40 and 11/16-40.
We now offer custom PVD finish options. 1911 barrels are now available in stainless as well as black DLC and copper PVD coatings. PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coatings are an extremely hard coating that offer aesthetically pleasing colors and increased lubricity. Our DLC is a deep gloss black and is an extremely hard coating that increases lubricity. Our TiCN PVD coating is a satin copper. For colors, see images at the top of the page. PLEASE NOTE THAT PVD FINISHES ADD APPROXIMATELY 3 WEEKS TO LEAD TIME.
