Is there some reason that just the full size barrel itself wouldn't work in the compact slide assembly? The recoil spring to frame/slide ratios would all be intact. Or, would the barrel bushing be a problem.

The compacts use a different type barrel with no barrel bushing. You do bring up an interesting question, in the case a guy maybe wanted to use a suppressor. The 5" & 4.25" commanders both use bushings. Just curious if a 5" barrel would fit in a commander?

If it was a good idea, someone would be selling them.
