It says the barrels might need to be fitted. Would I have to pay them the $200+ to fit it or could I get a local gun smith to do it? Also what would that process be? Also whats the difference between Match and semi fit?

A local gunsmith can fit it or you can do it yourself.
A good file and some patience is all it takes. The match requires more fitting.

BarSto makes a great barrel and when fitted properly are capable of precision accuracy. That said I'm not sure what advantage a BarSto barrel will give over a Sig factory offering. Maybe longer life as BarSto uses very high quality steel. I've shot many handguns over the years both custom and production and the P320 has matched any accuracy I've seen in all custom pistols I've shot. When I can consistently get 1 1/2"- 2" groups from Winchester White Box at 25 yards with a factory pistol I don't need a $200.00 BarSto. Now when you're talking about pocket pool accuracy well, that's where a fitted BarSto shines. But I've never seen a striker fired pistol in a pocket pool match. Mostly custom 1911's.

I would say you probably better be capable of shooting up to the standards of a match grade barrel and have quality ammunition to feed it. As long as you can do that, then there is the issue of keeping it nice and clean because a good deal of the factory tolerances will most likely have been removed when a match barrel has been fitted.

Bar-Sto makes great stuff. Have two of their barrels in custom 1911s and they are fantastic. Just hate the price for their 226 and now the 320 barrels. I probably will be buying their 226 threaded conversion barrel because I can't find another like it, but probably skip the 320 barrels unless I decide to use a 320 in serious competition someday.

Their website claims that the 9mm conversion barrel can be installed in 357 Sig or 40 S&W and does not need a different recoil spring OR magazines. $230. Hmmmmm. Sig 9mm conversion kit, $407 last time I looked. Hmmmmm, again.

Why's that?
The chamber on the KKM was unforgiving. Unless my reloads dropped cleanly into a case gage you ran a chance of having death jam while on the clock. I got pretty good at clearing those by whacking the back of the grip while holding the slide, and made a habit of of checking every single round if it was something I would shoot on the clock. The BarSto wasn't as finicky, shot slightly tighter groups, and was a better fit in the gun overall. I have found that having the gunsmith fit barrels on the polymer guns also has the effect of tightening up the slide to frame fit which improves the trigger pull since there is less vertical slop.

The only reason I'd pick up a barsto barrel is for the threaded full size since Sig doesn't make a threaded bbl for a full size.

this exactly.


sig dropped the ball on only threading a full size barrel and calling it a compact threaded barrel.



excited for more threaded barrels to hit the market for the fullsize p320. I dont want a match barrel that has a stupid tight chamber that you have to run expensive ammo in but apparently sig decided no soup for me.
