Which 9mm pistols have a Match Grade barrel (or close to it)?
I'm told a match grade barrel, while it provides an added degree of accuracy, isn't worth the money it takes for a custom job if the gun will only be used for self defense (and practice at the range).
That said, I did hear that some 9mm pistols come with a barrel that is already classified as match, or at least something very very close. The Springfield XD(m) 9mm pistol was used as an example.
First...can anyone say if that is true about the XDm? and second...are there any other 9mm pistols like this (under the $1,000 range please).
As always, thank you for your help!
