 National Firearms Association - Barrel and Firearms Lengths
Cut the barrel to 18-1/4"/464mm and it becomes a "restricted firearm." Cut it again -- to 17-7/8"/454mm -- and it becomes a "prohibited firearm." It is amazing how cutting 3/8"/10mm rings off its barrel changes the basic character of the firearm, with less than an inch of overall length change!
The law apparently tried to prohibit certain lengths of barrel or firearm -- and failed miserably, because the limits are all conditional.
It should be registered as a partial firearm, NOT a "frame or receiver ONLY." The government's computer program cannot handle that variation, because the software is poorly designed and written, but that is what it should be registered as.

A firearm is a mechanical device that uses pressure from a burning powder to force a projectile through and out of a metal tube.

 Firearms and Toolmarks in the FBI Laboratory, Part 1, by Schehl (Forensic Science Communications, April 2000)
Forensic firearms examinations are based on firearms identification, which involves the identification of a bullet, cartridge case, or other ammunition component as having been fired by or in a particular firearm.
Fully automatic firearms, high caliber firearms, and shotguns, which cannot be discharged into the water tank, are tested on the Firearms-Toolmarks Unit's indoor range or on outdoor firearms ranges at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia.
In firearms identification, class characteristics include the number and direction of a barrel's rifling (e.g., four grooves, right twist or six grooves, left twist), caliber or gauge, and the width of lands and grooves.

 Single trigger firing of double barrel side-by-side or over-under firearms - Patent 4315377
When such prior art systems are adapted for use in over-under firearms as opposed to side-by-side firearms, it is necessary to completely redesign the units otherwise there is a change in the weight of the trigger pull due to the change in leverage caused by longer or shorter components of the firing mechanism.
Additionally, the selector button for determining which barrel is to be fired first is mounted with the trigger so that the entire unit can be inserted through a single opening in the bottom of the firearm, and the selector is remote from the breech-opening lever.
An opening 18 is provided in the bottom of the firearm for receiving a trigger T for pivotal movement about a pivot pin 19, and a breech-opening lever 20 is provided on the top of the firearm for releasing the barrels so that they may be loaded and unloaded with shells.

 The History of Firearm Identification by James Hamby - FirearmsID.com
Although some firearms were rifled - helical grooves in the bore of a firearm barrel to impart rotary motion to a projectile - the recognition that this rifling was of value for identifying a fired projectile to the firearm didn’t occur until late in the l9th century.
In 1852, a firearms related case examination occurred when the sheriff (title for county law enforcement official in the United States) in the State of Oregon (USA) was asked to determine whether the hole in a homicide victim’s shirt was caused by either a bullet hole or tear.
The FBI Laboratory’s Firearms Unit was responsible for conducting the analysis and examination of the firearms related evidence as assassination of the president is a federal crime.

 The Guild Companion: Entropila Firearms for HARP
The barrel would be purchased from a smith, and then it would be combined with a lock (the firing mechanism) and the stock (the wooden piece that held barrel and lock together and formed the shoulder or hand rest) which were often purchased separately or in the case of the stock made at home.
Barrel rifling consisted of small grooves etched into the inside surface that act much like the feathers on an arrow to stabilize the path of the bullet.
Two barrels side by side allowing either a double shot (roll once to hit and then roll twice for damage) or fire single shots twice without reloading.

This was highlighted by a changeover in shoulder-fired weapons from smoothbore firearms that had to be loaded through the muzzle each time a shot was fired to rifled-barrel firearms, some of which loaded at the breech.
The carbines, because their barrels were several inches shorter than the rifle-muskets the infantry carried, also had a shorter range.
Others used the standard infantry rifle-muskets, though the longer barrels were awkward and muzzle-loading was difficult on horseback.

 Wilson "drop in" barrels? - 1911Forum
I'd also like to know if there is a "better" barrel out there anywhere.
The drop in barrels are still quite accurate and many times you might find that the pistol is not always the limiting factor in the accuracy department.
That said, I have been thinking about replacing the factory barrel in my G30 with a Barsto, mainly for better case support and if I'm going to do that, I might as well spring for the fitting IMHO.
