This is kind of a poke in the dark. I recently purchased a pristine Colt 38 Special here off of the list. Unfortunately it has the first variant barrel. Due to it's lack of accuracy Colt was replacing them under warranty. Unfortunately that was over five decades ago. What I am looking for is one of the later barrels. They came out with the Mk II which was better but not until the Mk III barrel did they correct the barrel issues. I'm hoping somewhere in a dark corner of someone's shop there might be one. If there is please drop me a line.

Those pistols need an excellent fitting bushing to group. Is the bushing fit to the slide and the barrel hood/excellent? By design it needs to be really good. This could improve your accuracy issue without going to a new barrel.
I found a barrel on GB a year ago reasonably priced.

It seems to be a good fit. I gave the gun to Dave Salyer. He has experience with these particular 38's. I will investigate GB. Thanks.

Greetings,

Forgot to mention. Ask the Seller if the chamber looks like it is threaded. I believe the grooved chamber was the MK III modification.

Cheers,

Dave
