One of the most commonly asked question I see on the forum is "Which brand of aftermarket barrel should I buy?" The fact is that most aftermarket barrels are made using the same grade of steel and the same button-rifling process, so the only real difference will be in regards to the manufacturers attention to detail, whether or not the barrel was hand lapped, and whether or not the person doing the lapping has a clue what they're doing. Every barrel is different and every manufacturer has bad ones get out now and then, so basing one's selection by brand name is no guarantee that you'll get one that consistently shoots one-hole groups.
