    Default /// IGB Austria (Impulse Gun Barrels) - Review ///

    For all that were following this thread, it took IGB Austria nearly 18 months to finally replace TWO poorly designed barrels for my Steyr.

    Many phone conversations and emails with Carmen went unresolved.

    Recently, Carmen became unavailable, and I have not been given a direct answer as to why.

    Carmen was always delightful to deal with. I know she had some medical problems, and while I hope all is well, I fear it is not.

    In Carmens absence, Viktor did begin correspondence via email, and finally made good on his products.

    I wish the very best to IGB.

    Did the gunsmith you had fit the barrels point all this out to you?

    IGB manufactures "Drop-In Barrels" - No Gunsmithing required....

    Besides, the amount of work these barrels need would require a gunsmith to start over with a blank piece of steel....

    Sad, sad tale. Guess I'll forget about turning my M357-A1 into a carbine with IGB parts.

    Looks like my only option for such is a Grock. Lone Wolf sent me an email that they now offer Mech Tech carbine kits for $330 for Grocks. 'Course that means I gotta buy a G20 or G31.

    I wish. I found out with the ambi-safety misadventure the Llama IX-C frame is 25/1000ths wider than a standard 1911. Internal stuff is mostly the same, but frame fit is different.

    But it's still a great pistol and I've also found out I can get mags to fit it by cutting a slightly wider notch in Para Ord mags. I've got two I already had modified, a 14 and a 20(!), and two more 14s on order to arrive with my new M9-A1. I'll get those notched as soon as they arrive and give a range report on my four new "full capacity mags" for the Llama. :mrgreen:

    Admins Please don't ding me for this comment. I say this from my heart, not offend...


    I DON'T CARE ABOUT THEIR HOLIDAYS !!!!

    Babs, I totally agree with you. You have way more patience than I. I wish I could say something that would make you feel warm and fuzzy. But when money is involved "F" them.

    Admins, "F" is for fudge.

    I stand down to you for your patience. You were asked if you have been working with a gunsmith. I wish they could have some consistancy (F7, for the PC geeks) for their barrels. If they were a simply drop in barrel and you had to cut into the slide..... now your slide is dedicated to that and only that barrel. I purchased a new slide and my existing barrel (other than Steyr) will be dedicated to that slide. I don't want to invest in a barrel, just to cut away on something that is stated as "ready to shoot". If slides were readily available, then I might go for it.

    As for the barrel too short..... NO EXCUSE !!!

    Babs, come over here. You need a group hug. Sorry my friend (I truly mean that).

    Take Care and I hope the best for you. The run around you have been through is "BS".

    Admins, the "BS" stands for Bravo Sierra.


    Thanks for the heads up. (The power of SteyrClub) :!:

    well this is interesting. Sorry youre having difficulties. I had issues with my 357sig barrel from them too. With the help of Wulf I got a replacement. I haven't shot the new one much yet, just 12 rounds. It seemed to be OK, but this new posting is not a good sign.......Yea, the barrels are NOT drop in, even though they are advertised as drop in....... :doh:
