This is a question for anyone who may know the answer.

Dane- Why a bull barrel on the grey ghost? Wouldn't a barrel and a bushing be a more lifetime gun? You can always replace bushings as they wear out but isn't there a point with a bull barrel that the slide or the barrel will wear out?

The bull barrel will out last most shooters. The wear is actually spread over more area than the bushing set up.

You'll wear out the barrel I suspect long before the lockup is worth worrying about.

Tracy's gun has close to 15 K rounds through it and it will still shoot better than any one I have met can hold.

Why a bull barrel? The BBs are generally more accurate in the shooters hand than a bushing because of the longer lockup. And they are softer shooting. There is a reason IDPA does not allow that barrel style. It is a shooting advantage over a bushing gun.

Two more questions. Is there any chance of the Bull barrel rule being changed?

Would you do a similar gun to this without the bull barrel and with a different base gun. Like an STI slide frame combination?

Not likely...I can say almost 100% that it will never happen.

I build all kinds of stuff...it only takes time and money. "Similar" guns abound. Many have been seen here on the forum :grin:
