Weird JP at my local shop

Recommended Posts

223 JP at my shop. Looks pretty standard JP but it has a proof research barrel on it. Dude that works there is like yea JP uses them exclusively. I was like ummm but didn’t say anything lol. 
 

Has a lightweight carrier. Don’t think it has adjustable gas either. Doesn’t even look like it’s been shot, if much at all. 
 

I’m half tempted to buy it but that barrel gives me hesitation. What do you think? Hard to judge without pics I know but...

 

might be able to stop by tomorrow and get a pic or two.

Ask that JP guy on Instagram? But I bet it's somebody's home built from good parts and the salesperson is representing it as a factory gun.

Jp now offers proof barrels as an option, it could be a factory gun.

Actually they do not offer a proof as a factory build.

Given two competing statements, I trust the one from a person in MN over one from a person in CO.

Hang around enough gun shows and you'll hear everything with even so much as one identifiable component on it is an "XYZ gun".   It's really funny when you're with the actual XYZ gunsmith the seller is claiming it to be built by...

Haven't seen Proofs as an option in small frame. You can always request the build sheet which will specify the barrel. Maybe check for a JP laser mark on the barrel as well 😉. I'm not sure if JP did any recent CF SHOT builds but I haven't ever been in the booth to look. @caz41 gets to touch way more of the fun things than I do 😒

 

The Proof CF's are offered in large frame builds and MR-19's but that is presumably not what we are talking about...
