I've never heard if anything. But if I had to drop the hammer on someone, the barrel would be the last of my worries.
It is generally advised NOT to carry a concealed firearm with an aftermarket barrel ... it is simply one more thing that can be used against you in a court of law ... or so I am told. I have three firearms that I carry in varying situations ... two of the I shoot with aftermarket barrels and then change the barrels out before I leave the range. To be honest, I would like to carry what I practice with.
My question is this ... does anyone here know of anyone who was involved in a shooting where an aftermarket barrel became an issue? And if so ... how did it turn out.
Nope, I've never heard of such a thing in any court case ever.My question is this ... does anyone here know of anyone who was involved in a shooting where an aftermarket barrel became an issue?
I understand what you're saying but a lighter trigger could also allow you shoot more accurately. I would think a "light" trigger might come up in a ND/AD case.I wouldn't worry about it having an aftermarket barrel. An aftermarket barrel is usually done to either change caliber or for increased accuracy. Increased accuracy is an argument that can be used in your favor. You want to minimize the chance of hitting something other than the intended target.
I would not advise an aftermarket lighter trigger, but a more accurate aftermarket barrel shouldn't be a problem.
