    I'm doing a little research here and I want to know how you rate various barrel lock-up methods.

    1) 1911 - slide stop and link
    2) Hi-Power - locking piece pressed into frame (Glock is the same as far as I can tell)
    3) CZ-75 - slide stop only
    4) Beretta, and Sig type using a locking block (if there are important differences here please enlighten me)
    5) HK and Ruger - use part of the guide rod to cam the barrel into locked position
    6) OTHER? - Taurus PT uses part of the removable "frame" to cam barrel into position?

    Thanks!

    You left one out.
    How about:
    1911 - slide stop and properly fitted barrel lugs/cams?

    In that arrangement, the link is only used to pull the barrel down out of lock with the slide.
    It is not used at all for lock-up.

    No other system has yet proven as accurate in match guns.
