    Some TM-1 barrels were made in Spain, maybe TMX too, John Allem had a few TM-1 barrels laying around.

    John,
    I have one of the "French" Perazzi barrels here at the Silver Dollar. I think its 35" in length.

    Have been shooting an aftermarket TMX type barrel on TM1 for several years.
    Giacomo fitted it. Don't know who made it but think Hastings. Giacome said
    was a good barrel and it breaks targets - sometimes.

    Hi John,
    the red stock gave it away I am pretty sure I know this gun. If it is the one I think it is and am almost sure of it is a Hasting barrel made in France. They are excellent barrels some gunsmiths think they are better than Perazzi barrels as they are said to be made of harder steel. I think that if it shoots well and patterns well that is all I would want. It does alter the value as it is not original but how much is determined when buying/selling the gun.

    All of the Hastings barrels I've seen were well done.. There was someone else who did their version.. It shot well.. but the mono-block was a wee bit undersized.. Their name escapes me.. but I remember having it metal sprayed to build it up a little.. and then it fit like new.. They sold ribs.. but evidently had some mono-blocks made..
