We have been holding off on this for a while, but customer demand was just too great!  We are now offering the  SM-1 for those of you who have Vent Rib barrels.  This does a number of things, but mostly it saves you money.

The problem with the Vent Rib was that it didn’t always fall right to have the barrel cut back to 18.5 inches.  However, it was cost prohibitive to many customers to buy a new factory barrel at almost $200.  So, we have come up with a solution that will work for everyone involved.  The only catch is that you might end up with a 20″ barrel instead of a 18.5″ barrel.

We are able to cut the barrel back to a post on the vent rib and install a new front sight.  The barrel looks great and works fine for any application.  The 2″ difference will be negligible for most shooters and applications.  So if you are considering the SM-1 but didn’t have a plain barrel, go ahead and send us your vent rib barrel and we will make it work.

By the way; no extra cost for vent rib modifications.  Contact us at:
