I assume with a new barrel there is a curve as it wears and settles in still though but that is, again, in the thousands of rounds?

Otherwise work on your trigger control and shoot!

Yes, not like a rifle barrel and all it's pagan rituals......
Ah, gotcha! I do actually take the barrel out with every cleaning though, so for me that would be part of the field strip. I would definitely pull the extractor and clean that as well. The ignition system can get dirty, especially with double base powders, and because precision pistol shooters are such “trigger feel” **********s (way more than rifle shooters even), it’s worth cleaning those every so often.

As far as I can tell, there were three or four eras of 1911 accurizing—for the modern era I would say no, there really shouldn’t be a break-in period where parts need to wear together. The smith should have taken care of that with appropriate lapping and buffing.

Unless you are shooting up into the 40,000+ range?
I have a High Standard Victor with over 60,000 rounds. It still shoots better than I can hold it. Pistol barrels just don't wear out like rifle barrels.
Here's some info that I have posted before:

Thanks to all!
I am considering starting to shoot the Pistol matches and of course then the maintenance of the pistols.
In a way I'm glad they seem so much easier to work with than a Rifle.
(Not to mention no shooting jacket etc etc ……..)

PS pbm: Yes I could see some sort of "flush" with the frame if the trigger etc got too gummy or something......

This is definitely a major draw for me too. No jacket and sweatshirt in July, no range cart, no stool, no cumbersome scope stand, shooting mat etc.

Just show up with a few essentials and compete.

I love service rifle shooting, don't get me wrong, but the comparative simplicity of the pistol is very alluring.

Bullseye pistol shooters are the prima donnas of the shooting sports. Rifle shooters do it in three positions in the dirt.

For what it is worth: I have a High Standard M106 barrel I wore out. The chamber and bore are rough and it reached the point of keyholing at 50 yards before I noticed it. The AMUs I shot with replaced hardball barrels after 5,000 rounds because 50 yard accuracy fell off after that.

Any guess on how many rounds you had on the barrel?
That is a 22lr correct?

I'm not the AMU...... I'll never shoot that well to "see" the drop off they do.
Besides, Uncle Sugar isn't paying for my barrels.
