    Try Jarvis, send them and email or give them a call and they should be able to help you out. There's also Storm Lake,

    Thanks, JD. Great site, and good prices. They have exactly what I'm looking for. One question I hope you can answer. What is the difference between the drop-in barrel, and an oversize barrel? I figured that the bull barrel is already oversized, thus eliminating the need for a barrel bushing. I'm fairly new to the 1911 world (all my other pistolas are Glocks), so pardon me for my ignorance.

    The drop in barrel will require less smiting as there is less material, the oversize barrel has more material to be removed to allow for a more precise fit.

    A "drop-in" barrel does not mean that it will not have to be installed by someone that knows how to fit a barrel.
