What is a 'throated' barrel?

Recommended Posts

Throating refers to a gentle relief of the lower edge of the chamber. It is a slight bevel of the lower edge that allows the cartridge to transition from the magazine to the barrel more easily. Just be careful that some knowledgeable does it. I saw one yesterday where some moron relieved the barrel all the way down and blended it with the frame (which they also relieved and polished)
