I've fit a good number of Barsto match target fit barrels in 1911s, just need the right tools and know what you're doing, and go real slow.

I'm with Jim, I have all the USP sizes and calibers and they are great guns. But for me the USP 45 grip is just too big for my hands.

I will admit that makes them really clean and shiny, then you just have to wait for the patina. Wonder what Starline puts on them, like Carnauba or something?

I don't get the Nu-Finish, I've tried it a couple of times and was not sure what it did. I even tried it, thinking a polish, might help that stinking 9mm brass size easier but nope.
