    With the quality of metals used in modern firearms a barrel should last many thousands of rounds before needing replacement.

    As long as your groups are still good I wouldn't change it. Like msgt/ret said you have a long ways to go.

    3000 rounds would be a very low count!

    Whoever told you that has no idea what he's talking about,I have never replaced a barrel from wear on anyone of my firearms and most have round counts over 10,000,my carry gun has about 1000 thru it and it's barely broke in

    When you give it to your grandkid :). The 3000 rnd count sounds like the benchrest competition crowd and definitely not applicable to a handgun.

    Are you sure you are not confusing the lube/oil change recommendation for your vehicle?

    Sounds like someone wants to sell you a barrel.

    Unless you are a competition shooter, your grandkids will probably still be shooting the same barrel long after you are gone. :)

    The true number of shooters who have worn-out a modern, quality handgun barrel beyond combat accuracy with factory-spec ammo is so small that you could put them all in the corner of your eye...without blinking.
    There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.
