Schuemann AET barrels

Anyone familiar with schuemanns AET barrels? How do they compare with kart and KKM? Also, is kart or KKM more accurate for 9mm in a 1911?
Thanks!

Jerry Keefer didn’t like them and neither do I. MCP used to use them. There are a bunch of them in the trash.

Boy is that an understatement!  Complete garbage in my opinion.

What was wrong with them?  Not enough metal to properly fit?  Poor tolerances?  Rough or improperly cut rifling?

Concept for our game.  Gain twist rifling doesn't work with our "slow" projectiles.

The Gain Twist worked well for me

Shot a .45 MCP for a number of years with a gain twist. It was very accurate holding X ring at 50 yards. Never had a problem with it shooting 185 grain lead or JHP. Schumann documentation said that it would only stabilize a 185 grain bullet and having tried a few non 185 would agree.

I have one in .38 Super and it will shoot 1.5" or less at 50 yds w/115 JHP Zero's and 4.6gr WST. I honestly don't think you "gain" anything for the added cost.

I had an AET barrel that was very good when using jacketed bullets at pretty high velocities (it was a 10mm Auto.)  In that application that has almost nothing in common with BE but "is a gun" it was good.  

I've always heard they do not play well with non-jacketed bullets even from the biggest fanboys of the product.  I'm not surprised they turned out to be duds in BE.  Based on what little I know, pushing a slow lead SWC out of one seems like it would work about as well as throwing rocks.

You will not get Schuemann on the phone anyways. I heard he went through a bad divorce and does not answer the phone. I have been tring to get bull barrels for 2 years now out of him. Always admired his work.
