My Ithaca frame came with an Israeli (IMI) replacement barrel. Chrome lined and manufactured in 1985. I may look for a correct High Standard or Flannery barrel to keep in the box, but happy to shoot the IMI. (TZ is their mark for parts. Somebody even got an IMI replacement slide from CMP)

Default Thread Revival---Any Hard S&W Barrel Data?

I've seen in many places (including above) that S&W replacement barrels were made around the Vietnam era and also that S&W may have made around 25,000 such barrels.

But, has anyone seen the original sources for this?

Contract terms/dates/durations/number of barrels?

Did the barrels make it anyplace identifiable or unique in the GI parts/rebuild/rearsenal universe?

Or did they all simply go to Rock Island for distribution where and when requested? (Rock Island often shows up as a CAGE source for later barrels)

Given that some of the CMP 1911 pistols have these barrels, maybe scholarship will begin to focus more on the post WWII iterations of 1911s now that more are documented as real USGI and out in the wild.

Thanks in advance for anything you may have.

Just wondering if anyone has reached out to Smith & Wesson historical department with this question?
