Replacement barrel Login/Join 
Junior Member
posted
I have carried a P 239 and a 10mm match elite both have some rust on one side in the barrel near the muzzle on the left side which would have been on the side where my body was. I am thinking that this was salt from sweat. I always eipe them down, but did not think to worm a corner of the cloth in the barrel muzzle. Question: Do replacement barrels have to be fitted or just drop it in?

They should drop in.
Why not refinish?

Yes, have them refinished in CPII from CCR. You will likely not have to worry about rusting again.

It is the rifling that is pitted inside the barrel at the most important part of the barrel, near the muzzle on both barrels.

I have always been able to just drop in Sig barrels made by Sig, don’t remember any one mentioning otherwise on the forum. Barsto replacement barrels are different even the semi fitted ones don’t always just drop right in. They are cheap enough still to have a couple on hand though are creeping up to the Barsto barrels. Check around prices do vary.

Sig barrels may or may not drop in. I’ve had two (220 and 226) that required fitting. Have you tried grouping the guns? The reason I ask is I purchased a police trade in P220 that whoever carried never bothered to punch the bore. Ring of lint (aka moisture collectors) pitted a nice ring at the muzzle. The pistol was still very accurate. I ended up replacing the barrel just because of my own OCD, but it wasn’t necessary.

Well that is a first for me, have you heard of others? My CZs required fitting but not much. I am guessing it didn’t take too much to do the Sig barrels or did it?

Ok. I confess. I am also OCD. I probably should forget about the pitting and just go on and shoot the 10 mm match elite and the p 239. Thanks all of you for the info.

Just recently acquired a Bar-Sto conversion barrel for my P239 to convert from .40S&W to 9mm. It was not a drop-in conversion. I needed to get a competent gunsmith to rework the barrel.
Lots of issues with this barrel that will need to be worked out: timing issues, lock-up, etc. Would probably have been more cost-effective to buy a used P239 in 9mm. In all, I'll have spent over $400 for the conversion and I still need to buy 9mm mags. What a cluster f**k!

Sorry for your trouble don’t hear much bad about bar sto barrels. I have 3 of them all trouble free. That doesn’t help you. A recent purchase?

Sorry you did say recent acquisition. Well maybe this thread will uncover other problems not that I Would be happy to hear that but if they are having QC issues would be better for us all to know.

I only have experience with the two. Both were Sig combat model barrels (phosphate finish, chrome lined) so I don’t know if it was that type in particular. They wouldn’t drop into the slide (seemed the hood was oversized somewhat) and the feed ramp would catch on the locking block. Both were sent to Sig for fitting so I’m not sure how much work was needed to fit them.

On a 239 you can use a factory barrel to get to 9mm so not sure why there was a barsto barrel in the first place to the post above about the barsto barrel? But in any case if it won't fit barsto charges $65 for fitting (or at least they did when I had to have one go back to them), so its not a big expense. In all these cases a few of them need some TLC to work, production tolerances etc. I've had mostly good luck with both factory and barsto over the years.

I did the same, a .40 to 9mm barsto conversion barrel for my P239. My semi-drop in also did not drop in. A local gun smith fit it and 50 FMJ's and 20 JHP later, it seems to work fine using my .40 mags.
Are the 9mm mags that necessary? I thought they were loose fitting.

Still $65 for fitting and test fire.

Will use the one .40S&W mag I have for the 9mm conversion. Sig did not have a 9mm barrel for the 239 available. That was my first choice. Most of the other gun parts sellers did not have a conversion barrel either.
Still looking for 9mm mags. If I can only use my .40S&W mag, that OK.

BarSto sells a video regarding the fitting. I used it to fit my 9mm conversion barrel into my 239SAS DAK. Works great. I have some 9mm mags, but the .40 mags work just fine as do the .40 springs and such.
