    any of you guys know a gunsmith who has a "finish reamer"? i need to have my barsto .40 barrel reamed.

    this is what some guys at benos forum advised me to do:

    The Bar-Sto's I've had, I've had to go from a .420 crimp to a .418 and that helped. When I went to the tighter crimp, I didn't see any pressure signs to worry about and it didn't hurt accuracy... But some I've had to ream a little.

    The lead bullet dia. is about .002 bigger than jacketed. If the throat is not reamed for lead it won't go in. You need to use a .402 chamber reamer to run in the chamber. Most custom smiths use this reamer so the guns will run anything from jacketed to lead.

    They make 2 reamers, one that's .401 & one that's .403. If your chamber was cut w/ the .401, it was set up for jacketed only & needs to be re-cut w/ the .403 for lead. Lead is about .402 & won't alway's feed in the smaller chamber.

    The throating reamer is made by Clymer. I would call around your area and try to find a gunsmith that might have a throating or finish reamer, because reamer's aren't cheap.

    so do any of you guys know who has a ".403 finish reamer"???

    thanks a bunch;)

    Try the gunsmith of Final Option in San Juan. Call their number 7265611 and look for Delio. He installed and reamed my Glock 17 Barsto barrel. Tell him you and I are "kababayans" and that I referred you.

    so far the heads didn't show any problems, i'm using Lee FCD and i'm sure Judge is using the same (tama po ba? :) )


    btw, not to bash final option or anything...i just had so many bad experiences with them...

    Sorry to hear that Jay.

    That's why you need to know the individual gunsmith. There are three of them there in Final Option San Juan.

    Luckily, I ended up with the good one.

    This guy installed my barsto barrel and later the steel sight of my Glock 17. No problems.

    And he did not even charge me anything for it!

    :)

    'Drew, bago mo ipa-ream yang barrel mo try mo muna i-polish yung loob. Either dremel o rotary drill, tapos felt tip swabbed in either JB bore paste o flitz. ;)

    Polish mo rin to a mirror shine yung breech face dre. At check mo yung lower kanto ng extractor claw, where the rim slides in. Dapat walang kanto dito or it will catch the rim causing FTF's. ;)

    After that, consider ka na ng mag upgrade to a 1911 since marunong ka nang mag-polish. Nyahahaha!!!:supergrin: :supergrin:
