Island barrel VS standard barrel


Recommended Posts

My gun currently has a Barsto barrel with MC comp and two popple holes in barrel. The new KKM island barrel is very appealing for when I need to do a new barrel or a new build. 


My question is what are the perceived opinions/advantages/disadvantages to going that route with the island barrel versus a standard barrel? 


Faster cycling, quicker to get back to zero, different balance, etc?

Hello: I would shoot one with a island barrel first to see if you like it. I did not like the feel of it in a couple of different setup that I shot. I also don't like super light slides for shooting major loads. Lastly like anything in an open pistol it depends on what you get used to until you try something else that is better. Thanks, Eric
