Six-inch barrel for 1911 10mm ?




Glock offers a 6-inch barrel for their 10mm. Have played with one and the original shorter barrel and there is some velocity gain.

Who has a drop-in 1911 barrel for the 10mm Colt Delta to give it a little more length -- six or seven inches ?

Just check the barrel company names, if you donít see your caliber call them, just about all will cut to at least six inches.

You will encounter problems unless you have a 6" slide. The lock up on t he barrels for the bushing or the bull barrel is on the .5" of the muzzle. You might be able to get some barrel company to extend that back.

Would that Theoretically still work? How would you get the bushing on/off? (unless you converted the gun to bull with a reverse plug...)

Besides, an extra inch would only marginally effect accuracy/fps. If I understand correctly, it's the increased sight radius, not barrel length, that make a long slide more accurate.

It works, I've seen several guns with 1" hanging out the front end. The bushing comes off the same way, you just have to slide it up the barrel to get it off. Your right about accuracy and I guess velocity would go up, but at what cost ($). Depends on if you think it looks cool and how much cool is worth to you.

Have a conventional 1911 45 ACP Gov't Model with a six-inch barrel on the original slide. Works fine. Accurate. Reliable.

With a variety of loads, picked up 64 fps velocity on the average. Whether the 7% velocity increase is worth it is up to the individual. Some folks add powder and pressure to accomplish the same thing.

Your results will vary.

I think the main advantage would be the extra weight of the longer slide to help slow down the slide as it cycles so the frame doesn't take as much pounding.

One more inch of barrel won't amount to a pimple on gnat's butt, as far as velocity gain is concerned.

Crazy question. I have a 6" .45 acp that broke the ejector. Here is the crazy part. Any way to make it into a 10 mm? other then the 6" 10 mm barrel?

I know the outer diameter of barrels for the 1911 are the same i just the inside is smaller/bigger.

You have to go with a different slide, as well as a new barrel, when you go from 45 to 10mm. The breech face is machined differently for the smaller diameter cartridge.

odd, both of my Kimbers are exactly the same on the front. That is why I was asking.

So what if I want a little more snort from my 4" Commander sized 1911 and decide to stick a 6" barrel in it. Is that going to work? It'd sure be cat butt ugly but it'd gain me more than 100 fps vel.
