Hey all you handgun guru's out there, I have a question about a barrel that a customer brought in to be sold on eBay. It is threaded and appears to be a 9mm. Thanks if you can help and if not have a nice day.

Here are some pics(hopefully)

Thanks, and please ask me for any details or more pics.

Hmm. Squared Chamber on the o.d. like XD, Glock, Ruger. But with a twist of using a link pin not like a Glock, XD or Ruger that I own.

I have no idea. Maybe some sort of one off 1911 based race gun? It sure does look like a Ruger barrel. I don't own any of their P-series 9mm for comparison.

Never seen such a device. Tag for outcome!

Thanks for the guess, I will start plowing through Ruger Breakdown sheets and see if I can find anything. There are no markings at all on this thing, not even to indicate caliber.

Who knows. The only thing not leading me to believe it's for a Ruger is the link pin. Which the older ones might have used it.
I think I've seen threaded barrels for Rugers. Theres no telling at all though.

ruger p90d .45acp maybe. but you know that it is aftermarket--ruger would never make a threaded barrel.

Ain't that the truth. Unless they pulled their collective heads out of their asses.

Bore looks pretty small to be .45 maybe it's just the pictures though.

Do not only 1911 models use a swinging link? All others use a fixed notch, I thought?

Since it's 9mm, I would say it will fit some sort of non-standard/aftermarket 1911, STI, for example.

My first though was Ruger. It's been a few years since I sold my p89, so I dont have anything to compare it to.

If I had to guess, it is probably a Fire Dragon barrel ordered out of the Shotgun News.

Isn't the o.d. of the chamber round like a 1911 on a BHP?

Looks like an aftermarket P85/89 barrel to me.

I am thinking the same thing, possibly for a 9mm 1911

Thanks for the help, I am almost sure that this is a firedragon. Thanks to gardenWeasel for the diagram and the link.
