I have a couple of blue slotted shrouds on my 40 and 375 supermags but now I have the 7445 slotted. I have a black barrel in my other 445 and it got me thinking. Would a black barrel look better in a stainless slotted shroud? What do you think? Inquiring minds want to know! THe gun came with the stainless barrel when I got it!IMG_3889.JPGImage Enlarger

Whatever floats your boat. Some even use a stainless BA on a blued frame, or the other way around (we fondly refer to that configuration as a "Pinto").

Both my blue slotted Supermags have a stainless steel barrel and I think that looks great. I do not think a black barrel would good in a blue gun it would just look like a non slotted barrel but the stainless slotted does look good with the stainless steel barrel but I like the black contrast also.

I have high-polished the SS barrel to add contrast to the brushed SS shroud.     I have thought about powdercoating a barrel in RED for a Blued Shroud.

I think the blue/black barrel looks good with stainless shroud.

I think everyone should have several of each in each caliberlol2. DW sold many blue guns with stainless tubes but I don't know of any stainless guns that were sold with blue barrel tubes.

Re red coated barrel, Norwich laser treated stainless polish tubes that have rainbow hues for those slotted shrouds.

I'm pretty sure that the blue/black barrels were mainly sold with the non-slotted shrouds. To me, the contrast of a stainless barrel against a blued shroud looks super cool. 

Scout's idea of powdercoating a barrel in red would probably look super cool too! One in cherry red against a blued shroud would be... cool

Korth /Nighthawk is doing stuff like that, with all sorts of skeleton type shrouds. I have only one word to describe it. Bizarre!!! But that is just me. Evidently most folks like it.

OK went and did something crazy. What do you think of this? Orange barrel with a orange looking grip. Also I bought an orange sight it's on the way so for now a red sight. I think it came out pretty good but i'm sure not for everyone. High temp paint on the barrel but it's a super tight fit had to be really careful putting on the shroud. If I like it I may take the barrel and have it powder coated but may run into the same problem with the shroud fitting in fact it may be worse. May not be able to get the shroud over the powder coat.

I like contrasting tube/shroud combinations, I think it makes it stand out better.

My favorite is my 'laser treated' 414 tube, but you can't get those new anymore.

Anything worth doing is worth doing well.
