I have a tricked out Colt (1991A1) that I have had for years and and it shot okay, but the accuracy was never what I had hope for.
Reading about barrel fit and taking a second look at the orginal stock Colt barrel that was in it, I notice some gaps on each side of the hood where it met the frame. On further examination I notice that the top of the hood wasn't total square with the frame either. :(

Now you can order a drop in match barrel. Drop in barrels have enough loose tolerances that you don't have to worry about fitting. but unless it is fitted solidly it might not shoot any better than the one you replaced. It is simply a matter of fact that there are some pistols out there which are at the edge or past the blueprint dimensional tolerances. So if you want a really good fit you order a over size match barrel that will take some filing and reaming. The greater amount of metal on the hood, upper and lower locking lugs gives you the flexibility to match the barrel precisely.

That being said I talked with my son, who builds custom pistols himself and said that he would fit it for me since he has all the tools for the job. Not knowing what barrel to buy, he suggested SS Schuemann Match Barrel and fitted it for me.

This is the first target tested after fit at 25 yds. using a sand bag rest.

I'm happy with it. The pistol will defiantly shoot better than these tired old eyes can focus!
