Newbie Question

I just bought a Nowlin Pre-fit match barrel and bushing,5" Government. I installed it in a Springfield Armory Government model 1911. It fit fine and locks up normally. However the barrel protrudes about 1/8" to1/16" from the bushing. My question is," is this normal, is it safe to use this way?" I have seen other high end guns like the WC professional model where is also looks to be the case. Any thoughts?

The protrusion past the bushing is fine.

As bikefreak stated it is not a problem and if you don't like it you would need to have a smith flush cut the barrel and recrown it.

This is a Nowlin "trademark". I have three of their barrels and they all extend beyond the bushing.
