    I just got this custom 1911 last week. It's my first handgun. I noticed the barrel is 3 different colors.

    The lenght of the barrel is a matte finish, the top part of the barrel that says S.A. .45 AUTO is stainless, and the lower part has a black finish on it.

    Marking on the barrel.

    On the under side of the barrel center to the link there is a T stamped there.

    On the right side of the barrel there is M S on top and a B on the bottom.

    On the left side there is an R on the lower link.

    It was made back in 97. Springfield does not have the paperwork anymore. All they could tell me it it came from the custom shop.

    Was there a question in there, or was this just for informational purposes?

    Sorry, I was trying to ask if anyone had seen a barrel like this and who could have done it.

    Contact them.

    Also call Springfield, the letters are their manufacturing marks.

    Can't speak to the black, but it looks like somebody polished the breach end of the barrel. Which is seen when the slide is forward, but chose not to polish the rest since its only seen when the slide is locked back. Not so unusual.
    A smith once did that to a S&W of mine just for looks.
    If it shoots straight enjoy it.

    I talked to ace customs. They did not have it on file. I tried e-mailing SA to try getting some more info from the custom shop. No e-mail back.
