Abstract : A spring steel snap ring bearing between the pistol barrel and the barrel bushing to remove the relative play therebetween and thus accurately position the barrel relative to the sights on the slide to improve its aiming characteristics. This relative play between the barrel and barrel bushing on the slide is incorporated in its manufacture to permit pivotal as well as longitudinal movement of the barrel relative to the slide containing the bushing.
