Pistol Barrel Specs
Pistol barrels have evolved as pistol technology changed. Single shot handguns were powerful but difficult to reload quickly, limiting their usefulness. To try and rectify this, multi-barreled pistols were invented, a precursor to revolvers (with their rotating barrels) that allowed the user to shoot several rounds in fairly quick succession. However, each barrel of such pistols still had to be meticulously loaded one at a time. Finally semi-automatic pistols were created to eject shells and reload automatically, making them highly efficient and deadly weapons.
Many pistol barrels feature rifling, sometimes in polygonal patterns. This older style of rifling has made a comeback in modern handguns. Its softer edges reduce wear and tear on the pistol barrel and some believe it offers enhanced accuracy and velocity. While many modern pistols are designed to be one cohesive piece of weaponry, others are meant to be modular, allowing users to swap pistol barrels, trigger mechanisms, stocks and more. Pistol barrels have both a long history and many variations to make them sought after pistol parts.
