That is not a stock barrel. I don't know what type it is though. I bet it is made of stainless steel if it's heavy.

That makes sense; the body and valve are also made of stainless steel.

Used to be, yes. Some were great perfomers too, like the old Dye SS. A lot of the Nickle plated brass barrels used to float around too, those were also heavy as hell(BOA, old J&J). That top barrel looks like a knock off Dye SS.

Doubt it, that's just a personal preference thing. I'd rather have fitted shrink wrapped ss line than macro, but then next guy might hate SS line. Keep the SS line and give an option when you sell it to include either or, depending on the buyer.

I LOVE steel barrels! Thats all I use on my Minimag, I have a 12in Dye and a 12in Lapco Autospirit. Back in the 90's they were the 'in' thing, especially before Dye made the Boomstick series (half steel/half aluminum), and then their Ultralite series (all aluminum). By the late 90's everything started going towards lighter weight, and people started to wonder why they were using barrels that were almost as heavy as the gun itself.

Could be wrong, but that little barrel you have definatley looks like an early Dye 10in stainless. The 10in ones seem to be more disirable than the 12in ones for some reason, I guess their not quite as common.

Polish your Minimag body to a mirror finish and I guarantee you'll like that barrel more.
