I don’t know that it would make much difference, but I do wonder what the velocities would be across the various sized barrels in same model and in guns in high original condition. I wonder if there is slight difference in velocity between the model 92 & 73 due to the design.

I’ve always saw the longer heavier barrels being possibly more accurate due to increased weight making a more stable shooter. The heaver it is, the easier it is to hold still, especially with a rest!

Sincerely,

Maverick

Longer barrels give you a better sight picture and may take advantage of your specific powder load.  If all the powder isn’t burned up the rule of thumb is 25 fps per inch of added barrel length.  Heavier guns reduce felt recoil.  The heavy, thicker, barrel absorbs heat slower than a standard barrel.

Guess that explains partly the immense popularity of the SRC…
