    I just got a spare barrel in from a trade; its barrel serial is 30477XX.

    My first Steyr, and the one I shoot the most/all the time is an M9 and the barrel serial starts with a 0 as the first digit.

    I eyed the replacement when it came in and something looked different. Compared it to my old barrel that started with a 0.

    Steyr change their barrel design; more accurately, they changed their locking lug profiles, very slightly.

    Also, since I never clean my guns, after taking out my old 0 barrel, I realized the feedramped had a decent chip out of the botton of it.

    The gun has been through tens of thousands of rounds.

    Just a note.
