Randy spent the weekend in the shop taking our prototype blank M&P barrel and turning it into a fully functioning barrel.
We’ve altered much of the geometry on the barrel’s locking surfaces to improve lock time ad other critical aspects of the gun’s function.
Randy and I took out his M&P 9L today to fire the first rounds. We’re proud to say that the gun ran flawlessly with 3 different kinds of ammo, no feeding or ejection problems of any sort, in fact, we had absolutely no trouble of any kind.
The new barrel is the first of 3 prototypes that we’ll be running in our M&P’s for the next few months. Meanwhile, Bar-Sto will be gearing up to produce these barrels themselves. We don’t have a time line for availability of these barrels from Bar-Sto as of yet, but they are in the works.
