I just got one in. I noticed the chamber is chrome and the chamber chamfer is not. Chamfer cut after chrome. It's now apparent from the original pics, but I thought I was looking at lighting, not a break in the chrome.

Not saying anything about it being good or bad, but a means of identifying provenance. Like I've got 3 of Pat's barrels here and the last 40 coming soon - but they are unmarked. So looking for some defining characteristic, where I can say "this makes it a Jones barrel, and that makes it a Sarge's barrel"

GP,

Is the barrel part of a build that will result in a test fire?
