1911 barrel lugs

Post by SNaymola on 7/1/2016, 11:15 am

I was cleaning my 1911 the other day. While examining the barrel lugs, I noticed they look different from what I have seen posted by others. Jerry's pictures are the best example of what I see as the norm. I have attached a picture of the barrel here and am looking for input from the experts. They look to have a different profile than what I have seen. Also not very polished on the sliding surfaces.

looks like any other standard type 1911 barrel to me. Jerry K's stuff is usually heavily modified not the norm for 99% of us.

Looks kinda normal to me too. At first I thought it was a ramped barrel but it looks like a slide stop pin is there. Hard to tell anything the area where it fits into the bushing is not shown. Hood looks a little beat but the image is small. The next area of importance is where the slide stop pin contacts the lower lug but again nothing is shown. The ramp just before the lock-up area on the lower lug seem to have a radius, I prefer it to be straight with at best a very slight radius at the "corner".

I'll post a better pic. That is the slide stop pin in the picture. I just thought the radius seemed real sharp and squared off. The slide pin does not sit in the lug, it contacts the back and bottom .

The radius is cut to allow the slide stop to clear lugs until slide stop contacts the flat portion of the lugs. More than likely whoever fit this barrel was over aggressive when filing front of lugs for clearance. Typically this will take too much bearing surface off the flat. Results in less lock up bearing surface which can lead to more felt recoil and give up some accuracy. Bit there are many more facets than that. In my opinion the bottom lugs and link fit which both include slide stop pin fit is most crucial part of barrel fitting.
