Unfortunately no. These barrels are simply too small for us to make. We don’t have the correct tooling to do either of these. Currently there are no plans to make these in the future.
Are your drop-in barrels truly drop-in or will they require gunsmithing?
Our drop-in barrels are meant for factory slides and frames and should drop right in. We do add extra material to obtain a better lockup for increased accuracy so in some cases light fitting may be required. In the case of a barrel not fitting we offer barrel fitting free of charge. We are experiencing extended turn around times for any fitting work. Give us a call 775.246.5444.
Can I get a Glock barrel in an extended length?
Sure, we keep an inventory of uncut barrels so we can customize the length to a customers needs. We don’t charge any extra either.
Are KKM’s barrels made by other manufacturers?
No. We make all of our products ourselves. Our barrels are not rebranded barrels from other manufacturers. Every barrel we produce will be true match grade quality backed by over 20 years of pistol barrel craftsmanship and knowledge.
Why does KKM use button rifling instead of the more common broached/cut rifling?
Button rifling is a far more expensive and time consuming process then broached/cut rifling, but the gains in accuracy are far greater with button rifling. Our extensive knowledge of precision long range bench rest shooting has taught us that the bore has to be dimensionally perfect from the chamber to the muzzle to shoot at distances greater than 1000 yards. In a rifle barrel the bullet has time to stabilize in the bore but in a 5inch pistol barrel there is very little time for this to happen. That’s why a pistol barrel bore must be dimensionally perfect both in size, roundness and surface finish from one end to the other. Only button rifling can achieve this level of accuracy. Our National Match barrels routinely shoot sub one-inch groups at 50 yards.
I recently purchased a 1911 gunsmith-fit barrel but I do not have a chambering reamer. Does KKM offer finish chambering?
Yes. Once the barrel is fit to your slide just send us the barrel and we will finish chamber it for you and send it back. We can finish chamber all of our gunsmith-fit barrels. We also don’t charge for this service either. Just pay for return shipping. Please allow for extended lead times on all finishing work. Give us a call with questions (775) 246-5444.
Can I get a barrel in a different rate of twist?
Sure. We offer twist rates in many different configurations:
9MM: 1:10, 1:12, 1:14, 1:16, 1:18, 1:24, 1:32 and 1:40. The 1:18 is our standard twist rate.
.45ACP: 1:10, 1:13, and 1:16. The 1:16 is our standard twist rate.
Can I shoot lead or plated bullets out of your barrels?
Absolutely yes. All KKM barrels can shoot lead, jacketed or plated bullets.
Will my reloads work in your barrels?
We use SAAMI spec chambers in all of our barrels. Good quality reloads will work fine in our chambers. If a customer has a special reload that they want the chamber cut too, we have a large inventory of chambering reamers for custom jobs. Just send us a few rounds of your reloads and we will custom tailor the chamber to fit. Please allow for extended lead times on all custom work. Give us a call with any questions (775) 246-5444.
Do you offer “porting” on your barrels?
At this time we do not offer barrel porting only compensated barrels.
Please call or email us for info about our manufactures warranty before getting your barrel ported.
What coatings/colors do you offer?
Our standard finish is a Matte Stainless finish on the chamber and a polished stainless finish on the barrel. We also offer the choice of having your barrel black Nitride coated for an additional fee. Please allow extended leads times on all black Nitride finished barrels.
We do not offer TiN coating at this time. Please call or email us for manufacturers warranty info before getting your barrel TiN coated.
