Any opinions on the value of adding a match grade barrel for my Glock 27 and Sig 220ST?
I have a Sig P239 (40) that I cannot believe I could shoot any more accurately -- it's my most accurate semi-auto; whereas I want to improve my accuracy in my Glock 27 and my Sig 220 ST.
I was checking the web site of Jarvis in Montana -- match grade barrels aren't cheap! I believe they were around $235 each. That amount would buy a lot of ammo for practicing, but at times, I feel as though I have hit a plateau for accuracy and need to buy some help; heck, I buy a new driver every year hoping for another 15 yards of distance.

Don't have enough skill with any semi-auto to have done more than just think about this. But have you looked at the Bar-Sto website? They have match-grade barrels for Glocks and Sigs as well as 1911's. Not sure if you're Models are covered. Drop-in or to fit. Like you say, not especially cheap.

You could try KKM barrels from Glockmeister. Put one on my 10MM for lead reloads. Accuracy wise, I think more trigger time for the Glock trigger.

I received an e mail from Jarvis in MT. Their match grade barrel for the Glock 27 is $185 and $10 shipping. Will have to check the prices of the competitors -- just hope spending the bucks can result in a consistent improvement with my shooting.

I bought a number of Jarvis "drop-in" barrels for various Glocks. They make two kinds: one is a "drop-in" barrel that requires little or no fitting, and a "fitted" barrel where you have to send them the gun to fit the barrel precisely (or have your own gunsmith handy to do this). They improved my group size by about 50% at least - I was VERY impressed, and think that it was money well spent. I did have trouble getting them to feed JHP's, though. The feed ramp wasn't polished, and the chambers were not throated sufficiently, and of course (being match chambers) are VERY tight. Some polishing and throating sorted this out, though. I highly recommend the Jarvis barrels.
