So, I finally received my 9 inch Guarder steel outer barrel, which due to the short length had me a bit concerned. However, it worked out great! The end extends past the front sight post just slightly. This barrel is HEAVY which is exactly what I was hoping for. Tested with a magnet it is confirmed 100% steel. No magnet will stick to the factory barrel, but will to the Guarder. The only slight issue I ran into was the front sight post being able to move a bit when you put a bit of force into moving it. This to me was unacceptable. I drilled a small hole on the bottom of the front sight post under the sling point, and drilled a small dimple into the new barrel, then set a grub screw with some thread lock in to secure for a perfectly solid fit. I'm not sure how to attach more than one photo, but I have quite a few more to show.

Good stuff! I'm glad that you're happy with your purchase. About the pic posting, use a image hosting site like Flickr.
