Success !!!

Received my P 229 40/357 to 9 mm Bar-Sto conversion barrel this afternoon along with their DVD.
I decided to watch the DVD first. Jumped to the Sig install section about half way and then I decided to go for it.

The barrel dropped in the slide with perfect lockup. Tight with no side movement front to rear, side to side and up and down. Next I mounted the slide assembly on to the frame. Same results tight. It was a true drop in for me.
Put a 9 mm recoil spring on the guide rod and test functioned the gun with no problems. Finally, I took a full 17 round magazine to the backyard and racked the slide. All 17 rounds loaded and ejected with no problems. Saturday will be the range test.

The front of the barrel protrudes pass the front of the frame about 1/16" and it has a nice crown to it.

So far I am very satisfied with this barrel. We'll keep you guys posted.

I wish I could but the indoor range I frequent I think it is 25 yards.
I had also installed the AC flat adjustable trigger. Between the new trigger and the Bar-Sto barrel it should improve the accuracy. It all depends on my trigger finger.

Honestly, it may improve accuracy a little if that. Out to 50 yards is prolly where you would see it anyways and prolly with a competition hand fitted barrel.
Nonetheless, you still have one of the best barrels money can buy imo.
Congratz and good luck

I have one that fits like this, the front of the barrel sticks out about 1/16" compared to the Sig .40 barrel which fits flush.

Is this the way the Bar-Sto is to fit or is some work needed? Thx

I'm thinking they do.
I have a .357 Sig barrel for my X5 Competition, and it also sticks out just a hair, with that very nice crown.

Got mine too, installed on of them tonight. I was surprised I only had to take a couple thousands off the hood, but a lot more off the lower lug. I've had semi-fits that I've had to take that much off of. Anyway, really snug clean fit, probably do a couple more tomorrow.
