    ID .45 Carbine bbl...?

    I got this .45 bbl a few years back. The seller knew nothing about it. Anyone care to hazard a guess as to who manuf it?
    It has no markings whatsoever. I assume that IMI/AA would at least have the caliber? Maybe there were exceptions?
    I know that Troy at BarrelXchange and Tony at Green Mountain always mark their bbls. I don't know many companies that made .45 bbls? Bushmaster made a ton of Uzi 9mm bbls for all three models but don't recall .45?
    Just curious...?

    Iíve got a couple I got from D&D in Tucson with no markings. I canít recall who made their bbls.

    Are you sure about bbl exchange and green mountain marking their barrels? Iíve got examples from both that I havenít seen markings on (no even ďUS MadeĒ).

    In my prior dealings with the owner, he told me that "every barrel goes out with our name on it" but that was a few years ago... Normally a very small stamped "GM" mark.
    I'd have to ask Troy if he quit marking his.

    More importantly, I'd be curious to know if AA sent out any without markings? The guns usually had the last three of the serial and the replacement .45 ones I have seen all have had the caliber. Maybe Dave can weigh in...?

    I've had hundreds of barrels made for me by Green Mountain, zero have had any markings at all.

    You're probably "special". Us mere mortals normally only buy in twos and threes.

    I just re-checked. I have 4x green mountain 9mm bbls (none are marked) the only uzi barrel I own with markings is my IMI original with the last three of it’s serial number. None of the 6 I have from D&D are marked either. The 4 I got from Barrel Exchange have nothing on them either.

    Maybe it’s about when you got yours - my most recent was this summer and most the others are from pretty long ago.

    All this talk about multiple barrels has left me feeling like a piker. I've only got TWO barrels for each of my Uzi SMGs. Of course, I probably only shoot my Uzis once or twice a year, if that. I can't imagine shooting one so much I shot out the barrel.
    Maybe I'll buy me a couple barrels or two? ;-)

    I don’t have a lot of spares. I have enough to convert 4 pistols and carbines between 9mm and 45.
