Schuemann Barrel Rifling Wear Picture Request

Recommended Posts

Hello BE,

I have a Schuemann barrel in my 2011 Open gun. It is a 3 hole Hybricomp AET barrel with a titanium 5 port compensator on the end. I bought the gun used, so I am not too sure how many rounds have been through it. The previous owner informed me that the rifling can wear prematurely with faster powders like 3n37 or n340 (info provided by Wil from Schuemann and JL Hardy.. the gun was built by JL Hardy). I tore the gun down to spring level to make sure everything looked good before I shot it, and everything looked great, but the barrel looks like it has worn rifling. Can anyone with a Schuemann step in and provide a picture or two of what the rifling looks like in their barrel with barrel specs, including approximately how many rounds have been fired through it, and what type of loads were primarily shot with it?

Also, I have been using Super Lube in my other 1911s, but with small amounts. How much would you experts recommend using in the open gun? I have been testing some loads, and have been having some issues with FTFs and FTEs. More lube (or grease?) or less?

Thanks for all the help!

3N37 is hard on barrels and titanium comps. In less than 3000 3N37 burnt up the comp and KKM barrel on my Bedell. I had a schuemann barrel installed and thought that the rifling seemed shollow. My 40 has a schuemann as well and the rifling seems fine. When get home tonight I'll try to get some pics posted for you.

Sorry my cell phone won't take a good enough picture to see the rifling. Hope someone else can help you out.
