bambihunter Posted June 1, 2020 Share Posted June 1, 2020 I have this barrel that I bought a few years ago that was allegedly a M1 slug barrel but when I got it, it turns out to be a smoothbore fixed choke barrel with basically fixed sights. It has sat in the safe since. I wondered if someone could recognize it by its S/N or features, particularly the lugs on the portion that goes into the receiver (marked in red). It has the short barrel lug of the early HK era. But, in the one picture you can see the end cap and box. That box is older than any I have seen before. It is marked "S90 M1 CIL. 50 SB Magnum and I will look again tonight but I believe the S/N is what is marked on the box. It is hard to make out looking at the pictures with the writing over it. This barrel is marked C047274. I believe that is the S/N. The last picture is compared to my M1T. It is NIB so I don't want to take it apart and risk dinging something My gun feeling is this is in fact a M1 barrel, and that the S/N does match the box, but not positive. Were there more than 1 type or era of these or does any M1 (and allegedly some M2) barrel work with this? I think ultimately I am going to sell it as it isn't what I was wanting, but it is hard to find buyers for a somewhat unknown barrel. Thanks for any help or insights you can offer.
