What should I look for if I am planning on using a old 1911 barrel? what wear should I be weary of? Also can someone tell me where this barrel was made? it has the markings 7847 on the top and the letters RA in a circle.

Do you live in Ontario? Do you ever go to the gun shows in the US?

The letters RA are for Raritan Arsenal a facility that rebuilt 1911s.

I'm currently in Montreal, Quebec. And I really! I mean REALLY want to go to a US gunshow, The one I was at does not allow any weapons they describe as "Assault weapons" so all they have are hunting rifles. The shows in Ontario and most of the prairies are the best.
