If you can wear out ANY barrel with less than about 50k rounds, the barrel was junk to begin with. Good barrels last a lot longer than that.

You said you used Winchester from Wally World, so I'm going to assume it was FMJ. If it was plain lead, that could be the problem. Lead could also be a problem if the previous owner used unjacketed ammo.

There are companies that make stuff to de-lead your barrel. It looks like a sheet of cloth and comes in a package. You cut it into patches that fit your barrel and use it the way you would a dry patch when cleaning. It's a very fine grit abrasive cloth. If you have some fouling in the barrel, that might take care of it.

Yeah it was fmj and the barrel looks to be fine. I shot it again today from a rest and a retired police officer and range master of 30+ years was there shooting his kimber 1911 and we had him shoot the gun just to see if it was in fact us or the gun and he was all over the place too. He said he had never seen a gun shoot that bad before. Idk what to tell my buddy to do.

I'd go with operator error

There has been 4 of us shooting the gun. One of which has 30+ years of experience with firearms and many years with the 22. He was the range master and shot at expert level. I'm pretty sure operator error has been ruled out. I'm looking for things that could be a real problem and you just adding your opinion that has already been said doesn't help.

I'd borrow a bore laser and compare bore axis to sight alignment.

I'd borrow a bench rest and try several brands of ammo.

If you have a gun that doesn't group or consistently groups offline, you have the answer.

Tried a bore laser and it was dead on. Tried a new barrel and it was a hundred times better. Thanks all for the advice.

There are some pretty decent (but cheap) drop in Glock barrels available from Lone Wolf if you are looking for a replacement. EFK Firedragon makes good drop in barrels too.
