I have been to forums all over the web and got a lot of guess but no one knows for sure on the barrel of my colt sp-1 there is a C followed by a MP and then a B does anyone know what the B stands for

Thanks

Two different philosophies on this----one is B is for Bushmaster, the other is that the B refers to 'Both' the Chamber and the bore being chrome lined. I'd bet that the B probably is for Bushmaster.

if i remember correctly the B on a bushy comes before the MP.
