    Rob at Alchemy did a super job of fitting the match barrel.

    Good lord, this little gun shoots straight now!

    It's awful pretty but looking at my own muzzles, I'da had to get that crown recessed a bit or at least radiused. Of course, that's just me and my knock-around style.
    Straight forward old school pistols like yours really get me in a way that multi controlled, alternative materialed gee-whizzery doesn't - your funky, new wave NASA grips not withstanding.:D

    It is "a bit", but hard to tell from that photo angle.

    Here's another

    Down here in the tropical swamps of SETX I need all the grip I can get.:eek:

    Nice! I have used Bar-Sto barrels in 1911s and Browning/FN Hi Powers for a lot of years. I had only one gun, one of the '70 Series Gold Cups I've owned, that did not benefit from installation of a Bar-Sto barrel. Every other gun I owned with a Bar-Sto showed a significant increase in accuracy. The Govt. length Bar-Sto I bought last year had that type of crown. It is cut at an angle ( 11 degrees ?) and recessed, just not as much as most others. I don't know when they started using that type crown. It unlike any of my previous Bar-Stos...

    Nicer still... I'm gonna love seeing it again someday with some holster wear on it.

    I getcha on the grips. These may be fat and skin rippers till you knock 'em own with some 80 grit but damn, there's no movement when handling.

    Very nice Commander doc. I had Alchemy Custom rebarrel an S&W for me with a Storm Lake Match and though I'm not shooting straight after a long layoff I did catch a glimpse of what it's capable of.

    slight bevel, but not a full-on, "impress-the-forum-crowd" crown ;)
