rperillo - I am no Sigma expert at all but - if you have the gun then a simple scratch test with barrel might help.
First off - if carbon steel then I'd imagine it has some finish - like bluing, or similar. An SS barrel will generally be self finish.
If tho you use a scriber or similar and make a microscopic scratch on outside of chamber (hidden area) - then after degreasing, apply a small drop of cold blue. If SS then chances are the blue will not ''take'' to any obvious degree - whereas on carbon steel it should.
Only my rambling thoughts!
