    What is the differece between the following 5" barrels?

    5" standard
    Bull
    Match Grade, Bull
    Fully Supported Ramped, Bull

    I thought there was another one but its not on their web site. Thanks for the help.

    It would help if you post a link to the site, and the barrels in question.

    The standard 5" barrel has a dia. of around .580 and will use the standard barrel bushing.

    The Bull barrel will have a larger dia. (around .700") and will do away with the barrel bushing. It will also require the slide to be modified to use a reverse recoil spring plug.

    A barrel (either standard or bull) that has a supported ramp will have the feeding ramp as part of the barrel under the chamber. The frame will need to be machined out to accept the ramp area of the barrel.
