I was wandering the internet and noticed Novak doesn't recommend ramped barrels for single stack guns.
I also noticed in another thread that Burn's uses non-ramped barrels for the 9X23.
The factory Colt barrel in my new .38 super is non-ramped.

But, most of the aftermarket barrels are ramped.
So, what's everyone prefer? and why?

I have only heard that a ramped barrel in a single stack would adversly affect reliability. No one ever gave a reason for that, they just said it.
As I mentioned, Novak says it on their site.
But, I assume this is just a 1911 thing, due to angle's and such, since SIG 220's seem to work okay :smile:

I have a LW 38 super commander, and was thinking of getting it rebarreled. (Though, I do not reload, I still wonder about the unsupported case <most likely> in the pre-70's gun)
Since it's an aluminum frame, a ramped barrel would also help with feed ramp wear on the aluminum, even if I don't shoot it enough to worry about...
